TEXTBOOK: Intermediate Algebra, 7^{th} Edition, by Angel (UNL Customized Textbook, ISBN#0-13-238405-1)
CALCULATORS: NO calculators allowed
PREREQUISITES: One year high school algebra or Math 95C or equivalent. Your most recent grade in the prerequisite must be C, P or better. If you had this prerequisite in high school or some place other than UN-L, UN-O, or UN-K, then you must also have a qualifying score on the UN-L Math Placement Exam dated after March 2008. The Department of Mathematics will drop all students who do not satisfy this policy (see the Math Placement policy in the Mathematics section of the Schedule of Classes on Page 80.)
TAKING THE MPE VIA COMPUTER: A picture ID will be required and calculators are allowed at the exam. Students who need to take the math placement exam may do so through our new computerized setup. NOTE: The student must already have been admitted to UNL and entered into the course registration computer database (SIS+) to be able to take the online version of the Math Placement Exam.

FINAL EXAM: Tuesday, May 5, 2009
6:00—8:00 p.m.
(ROOM TO BE ANNOUNCED)
You are expected to arrange your personal and work
schedule to allow you to take the exam at the scheduled
time. Students with conflicting exam schedules may be allowed to take an
alternate final, which is always
given after the regularly scheduled final. No student will be allowed to take
the final exam early. A picture ID
(drivers license or student ID) is required to take the final exam.
Department Grading Policy: Students who believe their academic evaluation has been prejudiced or capricious have recourse for appeals in order, to: their instructor; the Chair of the Mathematics Department; the Mathematics Department grading appeals committee; and lastly, the College grading appeals committee.
