Welcome to College Algebra (MATH 124).  This course is the core mathematics requirement for most majors at UNLV.  We will cover a lot of powerful and useful mathematics in this class.  The course is neither trivial nor impossible.  Expect to work hard to achieve success in this class, but if you're not having fun, you're not doing it right.

Things to COMPLETE before the second class period:  Qualification sheet, Pretest, and Properties Worksheet.  All are available at links below.  I will collect the Qualification Sheets and Pretests; we will discuss the Properties Worksheet in class.

Things to print out from this site for your own use:  Syllabus and Assignment Summary.  Both are available at links below.

Writing Assignment, due 24 Jan (Sections 1013, 1014) or 25 Jan (Sections 1005, 1006):  "Math Autobiography."  The story of you and math from the beginning.  At least a page, single spaced, typed.  As always, spelling, grammar, punctuation, clarity, and creativity all count.

Online Homework is a substantial part of this course.  Get registered on MyMathLab and started on homework now.  If you need help, stop by my office.

I've found a few people that not only know how to succeed in a math class, they were bold enough to write it down for you.  Sometimes, they talk about "calculus," but if you insert "math" it will work just as well.  Links are here.
