All students who do not attend or interact with any scheduled classes for 14 consecutive calendar days within the term will be administratively dropped from their program of study. Attendance or interaction in a class includes such academically related activities as sitting in class, taking an examination, participating in interactive tutoring, and turning in an assignment. Student advising does not qualify as active attendance in an academically related activity. Appeals for a one-day extension may be granted by the Chief Academic Officer. All appeals must be in writing prior to the 14-day deadline.Daily tasks will be assigned which are due by the end of the class meeting each day. These tasks do not fall under the Make-up policy. Task completion is included in the student’s Professionalism grade. | Professionalism Expectations: | Students are expected to act in a professional manner by meeting deadlines, solving problems, cooperating with classmates, and generally contributing in a positive way to the class. Working in your field of study often means searching for solutions in a group context. Teamwork, listening, empathy, enthusiasm, emotional maturity, respect, and consideration of other people’s concerns are all essential to success. Please bring these qualities and values with you to class. It is as important to “practice” these interpersonal skills as it is to learn new intellectual content and related skills. Students will be evaluated on their professional demeanor in class.Observables: * Timeliness * Communicating respectfully with peers and instructor * Respecting others’ opinions * Adhering to the dress code as outlined in the VC Student Handbook * Adhering to the Academic Integrity expectations as outlined in the VC Student Handbook * Wearing the college identification badge * Completing all assigned daily tasks | Special Notes: | | Week | Dates | Topic Schedule | Assignments | 1 | 10/1-10/3 | Introduction of course and syllabus reviewWhole NumbersRounding of Whole NumbersExponentsOrder of Operations Pre-testAlgebraic expressionsOrder of operations | HW # 1 Section 1.7 Vocabulary: Page 72 (1-5 all)Exercises Page 73 (4 -44 by 4’s)Page 73-74 (46 – 86 even) HW # 2Section 1.8 Vocabulary: Page 81 (1-6 All)Exercises Pages 81-83 (8 – 88 by 4’s) Ch. 1 Review Exercises Pages 92-93 (90 – 130 even) | 2 | 10/6-10/10 | Integers * Greater than/less than * Opposites * Absolute valueAdd IntegersSubtract IntegersMultiply and Divide integersLibrary Project Due | HW #3Section 2.1 Vocabulary: Page 102-103 ( 1-8 All)Exercises Pages 104-105 (15 – 57 by 3’s)Page 105 (69 – 81 by 3’s)Section 2.2 ExercisesPage 112-113 (9 - 63 by 3’s)HW # 4 Section 2.3 ExercisesPage 119-120 (3 – 60 by 3’s)Section 2.4 Vocabulary: Page 127 (1-7 all)Exercises Page 127-129 (4 - 96 by 4’s) | 3 | 10/13-10/17 | TEST 1 (Chapters 1 & 2)Order of Operations with IntegersFinding the solutionSolving One-Step EquationsTranslate phrases to expressions Solving basic two step equationsAlgebraic expressions•Like termsMultiply and combine like term | HW # 5 Section 2.5 Vocabulary: Page 138 (1-6 All) Exercises Page 138-139 (4 - 76 by 4’s) HW #6Section 2.6 Vocabulary: Page 147-148 (1-8 All)Exercises Page 148 (9-14 all) (Page # 17 – 50 odd)Delete #21, #35, #37HW # 7 Section 3.2 Page 179 (29 – 34 all) Section 3.1 Vocabulary: Page 169 (1-9 all) Exercises: Page 169-170 (3 – 69 by 3’s) | 4 | 10/20-10/24 | Two –step equations * Variables on both sidesCombine Like terms Distributive property | HW # 8 Section 3.2 Vocabulary: Page 178-179 (1-6 All) Exercises Page 179 (1-28 all) Page 180 (45 – 72 by 3’s, # 74, 76, 78. 86, 87) | 5 | 10/27-10/31 | Rounding Decimal NumbersStatistics * Mean * Median * Mode * Calculate grade point average Assign Comprehensive Learning Assignment Test 2 (Chapters 3 & 5)Fraction Review | HW # 9Section 5.1ExercisesPage 338 (27-42 all) Page 338-339 (63-86 all)Section 5.7 Exercises Page 392-394 (1-12 all, 15 – 29 all)HW # 10Section 4.3 Exercises:Page 246-247 (1 – 6 all, 19-28 all)Page 247 (49, 50, 53, 54, 58, 57, 59)Section 4.4 Exercises:Page 260 (1 – 8 all), Page 261 (13-16 all)Section 4.5 Exercises:Page 272 (1 – 8 all) Page 272 (13 – 16 all) Page 273 (29 – 40 all) | 6 | 11/3-11/7 | Ratios and ProportionsMidterm ReviewMIDTERM EXAM | HW # 11Section 6.1 Exercises Page 417 (23 – 38 all) For the following you must show the proportion equation and the solution.Page 418 (41, 43, 46)Midterm Review Worksheet | 7 | 11/10-11/14 | Progress ReportsPercents * Percents, decimals, and fractions (Conversions) * Solve percent equations with proportionsPercent application problems * Sales tax * Interest * DiscountTest 3 (Chapter 6) | HW # 12Section 6.2 Exercises:Page 428 ( 8 – 64 even)Section 6.3 Vocabulary: Page 436 (1-6 all)Exercises Page 436-437 (1-16 all)Page 437 ( 25-28 all)HW # 13Section 6.6 ExercisesPage # 2-24 even, Section 6.7 Exercises Page 471-472 (1-27 odd) | 8 | 11/17-11/21 | Student EvaluationsGraphs * Pictographs * Bar * Histograms * Line Graphs * Circle graphsProbabilityTriangle * Square roots * Pythagorean Theorem | HW #14Section 7.1 Exercises Page 493-494 (3-27 by 3’s), Page 496 33 – 48 by 3’s Page 497 (63 – 70 all)Section 7.2 ExercisesPage 503 (1- 10 all), Page 504 (25)HW #15Section 7.5 Exercises: Page 529 (7, 8, 11 – 18 all), Page 53 (25 – 30 all) HW # 16Section 7.3 Page 514 (4 – 28 by 4’s), Page 514-515 (29- 36 all) | 9 | 11/24-11/28 | Student/Instructor EvaluationsGeometry Lines and anglesStudent EvaluationsPerimeter and CircumferenceArea and Volume | HW # 17Section 8.1 Vocabulary # 1- 10 allExercisesPage 556 13--30 odd# 37-43 oddHW # 18Section 8.2Exercises:Page 565 1 – 39 odddelete # 35 HW # 19Section 8.3 Exercises: Page 579 (1-25 odd, delete #4, #15, Page 580-581 (27 – 37) Volume only Page 582 (43, 45) Page 584 (75 – 81 odd) | 10 | 12/1-12/5 | Test 4 (Chapters 7, 8.1-8.3)Comprehensive Learning Assignment Due MeasurementUS and Metric Systems | HW # 20Section 8.4 Exercises:Page 595 ( 1-15 odd) Section 8.5 ExercisesPage 606 (1 – 11 odd)Section 8.6 Exercises: Page 615 (1 – 11 odd) Section 8.7 Exercises: Page 625 (53-59 odd) | 11 | 12/8-12 | Rectangular coordinate systemGraph basic linear equationsReview for Final ExamFinal Exam | HW # 21Section 13.1 Page 955 (1 –a, b, c, d) Page 955 (2 – a, b, c, d)Page 956 (3 – 9 all)Final Exam Review Worksheet CONGRATULATIONS ON COMPLETING THIS COURSE. |

Gray Code

...What is Gray code? From Wikipedia The reflected binary code, also known as Gray code after Frank Gray, is a binary numeral system where two successive values differ in only one bit. The reflected binary code was originally designed to prevent spurious output from electromechanical switches. Today, Gray codes are widely used to facilitate error correction in digital communications such as digital terrestrial television and some cable TV systems. One good way to explain the use of Gray code is to take a look at how a hard drive work, in extreme simplicity. A hard drive contains a disc where information is stored. The information on the disc is stored in ones and zero´s, binaries. The disc is divided into sections which each has a binary signature. Here is a picture to explain: As we can see here, section 0 for example has the binary signature 0000 and section 15 has the binary signature 1111. When a hard drive is running it reads section by section and if the hard drive for some reason has a failure and the reader jumps from section 15 to section 0 the reading changes from 0000 to 1111 which means that every bit read is faulty. This could change alot depending on how the information is parsed. A hard drive could be exposed to a lot of external forces and the reader can jump and missread at any time. This cannot be forseen, but it can be prevented to some extent. Enter Gray code. Gray code is a way to sort the binaries so that one binary never...

Atlanta Based Learning

...GSU 1010 7 December 2015 As a child, I luckily had the privilege to be supported both educationally and financially throughout my life. I was put into the best schools, I always had nice clothes, and there was never a night that I went to bed without having a full meal and a warm bed to sleep in that night. The reason I chose to work with Big Bethel Academy Saturday School was simply for reasons above but in the complete opposite context. The children that we worked with were underprivileged kids aging from 6 – 10 years old. I along with other peers of mine were responsible for tutoring the children in certain subject areas (e.g. math, reading, and social skills). What I took from this experience was much more than telling a child how to read and simply add two numbers together. This experience had changed my life forever, as it has taught me to always appreciate what I do have because there are plenty others out there who could only dream to live the way I do. I cannot begin to imagine how at such an adolescent age as 6 years old how it feels to go to bed hungry or to go to sleep in a cold bed that’s not even theirs. While shocking to some though but not to me was that these were by far the happiest children I have ever seen in my life. They have no idea what their circumstances are, and all they wanted was love and attention. It’s amazing how just showing someone that you care about them even in the slightest of ways can completely affect their entire mood. When those kids...

...The Binary Number System Robert B. Heckendorn University of Idaho August 25, 2015 Numbers are said to be represented by a place value system. Where the value of a symbol depends on where it is... its place. For instance an 8 in right most position in a number means 8 but in the third place from the right means 800. That is, each position from the right side of the number has an associated value. Base 10 or decimal Each position to the left is worth 10 more than the next position to the right. For numbers example: in the number 7654, the rightmost place is worth 1, the next to the right most position is worth 10, next position is worth 100 and the left most is worth 1000. The number 7654 is therefore: 7 ∗ 1000 + 6 ∗ 100 + 5 ∗ 10 + 4 ∗ 1 which is 7654 in decimal. The base 10 number system, numbers are represented by a list of symbols of which there are 10 kinds of symblos: 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9. The position or place values are powers of 10: 100 , 101 , 102 , 103 , ... or 1, 10, 100, 1000, ... Long ago computing machines used mechanical mechanisms and decimal represention but now with fast electricity based computing devices a new way to encode numbers and data in general is needed. 1 Binary In binary, the base of the number system is 2. Base 2 or binary numEach position to the left is worth 2 more than the next position to the right. bers For example: in the number 1101, the rightmost position is worth 1, the next to the right most position...
