revised 1-5-10
for Math 143, Math 144, Math 147 (Math 14x)
X = mandatory
H = helpful (cover these to make the course better than minimally acceptable)
P = prerequisite knowledge (do not “teach”, just review “in passing”)
“blank” = totally optional (do only after “mandatory” and “helpful” are covered)
GCM = Graphing Calculator Manual
from Math 108
T = a topic covered on test, quiz and homework
Q = a topic covered on quiz and homework
C = a topic covered in homework only
Keep in mind that many of our Math 143 and Math 147 students gain entry into our classes
by using their ACT/SAT scores or the COMPASS placement test. We may have only 10%
- 25% of any one class that has taken Math 108 sometime in their college career, and this is
not necessarily “last semester”. Thus, when you see a concept that has an X (mandatory)
on it for Math 14x and a T on it (homework, quiz, and test) from Math 108, do not
automatically assume your students are fine with that concept. In including the designation
for Math 108 below, the concepts were compared, not actual problems. So, the level of
difficulty may not be the same. In fact, starting with Chapter 2, we expect the level of
difficulty to be greater in Math 147 as soon as you get away from the most basic idea.
Math 143 - chapters 1, 2, 3, 4, 9
Math 144 - chapters 5, 6, 7, 8
Math 147 - all listed
Chapter 1 Fundamentals (over set of real numbers)
Do not get bogged down in this chapter. Try to stick carefully to the daily schedule
guidelines. The students should have the basics of each section prior to this class. We
want to expose them to the more difficult problems that are a “step up” from Math 108
problems.
We want to give the students the opportunity to review/learn these concepts, but not to
the detriment of rushing through or skipping the remaining ideas we need to cover in the
rest of the chapters.
Don’t assign all the problems listed here, but concentrate on these in your assignment and
class presentation.
Day 1 Assign Section 1.1 to be read (but not covered in class), and assign some problems
from 21-34, 41-54, 63-70, 76.
Cover Section 1.2 in class, and concentrate on problems from 1-22, 27-70, 83-86.
Assign the Preface of the Graphing Calculator Manual (GCM) to be read.

Math 108 does not use “transformation” terminology, and they work only with parabolas
of the form y = a(x − c)2 . They answer questions such as how does the vertex change, is
the parabola wider/narrower, and does the parabola open up/down? The students will
probably not recognize the connection between the different terminologies.
Also, some textbooks use the term “translations” instead of “transformations”.

The students need a basic understanding of what the graphs of polynomial and rational
functions look like and how they behave before we graph them by hand or with a
calculator. (The graphing emphasis here is to “not” use a table-of-values. When the author

Sections 3.3 and 3.5
There are two suggested approaches to sections 3.3 and 3.5.
A) Treat Section 3.3 solidly and heavily, then use Section 3.5 as a “capstone section” which
pulls it all together; thus, assigning a smaller number of problems.
B) Treat Section 3.3 as an introduction to Section 3.5; thus, keeping the homework
assignment in 3.3 smaller. Use Section 3.5 to firm up and solidify the concepts for all real
numbers.

Exponential and logarithmic functions are vital. Concentrate on minimizing the use of the
calculator by performing manipulations by hand as long as possible before using a
calculator. Emphasize the properties, laws, and use transformations of functions for
graphing instead of plotting points.
