Your success in College Algebra this semester is our primary concern!
We believe if you will use the materials presented in the web-based interactive learning supplement using Maple TA you will be successful; we can almost guarantee it! Further, we believe these study materials and suggestions provide a sound foundation for your success in your biological sciences major and in learning mathematics in future courses.
The MAPS Learning Supplement is based on the belief that all students can master College Algebra given proper prerequisites, coursework materials, support, and your commitment to try to learn. The MAPS Learning Supplement has been designed and developed to provide proper coursework materials from the biological sciences to supplement the text and to provide you with guidance and support in learning College Algebra. Ultimately, however, it depends on your commitment to try to learn College Algebra. If you do not use the MAPS Learning Supplement and do not do the homework and do not attend class each time it meets and do not really care to study, then no Learning Supplement, no matter how good the materials are, can help you learn and, hence, pass College Algebra.
The components of the MAPS Learning Supplement are:
* Suggestions for How to Study Math
* Materials to Help you Use the TI-83 Graphing Calculator
* Web-based interactive homework supplement
