Math 098 - Homework

This document is valid only for Math 098 sections taught by Mr. James Jones


The following is a list of assigned problems for Math 098, Intermediate Algebra, using the text Intermediate Algebra, fourth edition, by Charles McKeague.

These problem sets may be modified as the instructor feels is necessary. It is the individual student's responsibility to know what is assigned.

The student is to have each paper with their name and the section number in the upper right hand corner. All problems are to be graded by the student using answers in the textbook. Use a red pen to grade and mark each correct problem with a check and each incorrect problem with an "x".

At the beginning of each problem set, indicate how many problems are correct and the percent correct. Write this as a fraction in the upper right hand corner. Then convert this to a percent and circle the percent. Convert the percent correct to a score based on the following scale:

+2
90% or better correct
+1
between 80% and 89% correct
+0
between 70% and 79% correct
-1
between 60% and 69% correct
-2
between 50% and 59% correct
-3
less than 50% correct

The totals for each section are to be recorded on the homework summary sheet provided by the instructor and included with the homework when turned in. Homework is due the day of the exam over the corresponding sections. A student may lose points for a particular section, but the overall total for the chapter cannot be negative. If a negative point total exists, a grade of zero (0) will be recorded instead.

Given below is the section number and assignment for each section. The number of problems in each section is included in the printed version of this document given to each student at the beginning of the semester.

Only the odd problems need worked unless stated otherwise. The student should read each chapter summary and do each chapter test as needed.
