ENROLLED Online STUDENTS: CLICK ON THE LINK FOR YOUR CLASS and SUBMIT WORK IN THE ONLINE MATERIALS (MML) BY THE FIRST DAY OF CLASS OR YOU MAY BE DROPPED. There is a wait list of students trying to crash the course, so I'll dropping students not following my directions to log into the course materials and submit work on the first day in order to add students from the wait list.
Math 64 Online (Spring 2014 Intermediate Algebra)
Math 30 Online (Spring 2014 Elementary Algebra)
Note to Math 30 class: we are using open educational software, so you do not need to purchase anything. Follow directions in link to get started.     

Math 130 (Spring 2014 Trig Class)
PLEASE BUY THE BOOK (Trigonometry by Dugopolsky, 3rd edition) BEFORE the first class meeting. If it's not available in the bookstore or you are waiting for it to be sent online, then go to to get temporary access to the book. Register using Course ID harland23203. Temporary access allows you to read the book for free for 17 days. You can also use the online ebook all semester by paying for the course, but I recommend a printed version unless you want to print out pages to bring to class. HW from the book is assigned. 
When you log in and try to purchase it, when it asks you to pay or submit a code, look at bottom of page. You'll see a note asking if you are waiting for Financial aid and would like to get temporary access. Click on it. You can use the ebook for the semester, but it's easier to have a real book in class as sometimes I have you work problems from the book during class.

NOTE: My "online" classes are not completely online; they are Hybrid.

Any student enrolling in one of my online classes must come to the MiraCosta campus several times during the semester to take proctored quizzes and tests and have their notebooks checked regardless of where they live. This may not be done at any other physical location or college or proctoring center. This is true for students living out of town, out of California, or out of the country as well. If you live out of town, do not take my section unless you can travel often to MiraCosta as required. 

TEXTBOOK/SOFTWARE for Math 64: MyMathLab, or the bundle of MyMathLab with the printed textbook for Algebra, a combined approach, 4th edition by Elayn Martin-Gay.

Info will be posted and sent to enrolled students using the email provided in SURF before the official first day of class. Make sure your email is correct in SURF. Click to learn how to Update Info/Email/Phone number in SURF.

To enroll in one of my classes, go to SURF and enroll in an open class, or get on a wait list if a class is closed. If a class is open and SURF is not allowing you to enroll, or if a class is closed and SURF is not allowing you to get on the wait list, there is a problem with you enrolling in my class, and you will need to contact Admissions or a counselor to find out what the problem is. A permission number will not help or override that. If you get on the Wait List, check your email often and make sure your email address and phone number listed in SURF is correct. Below is the link to Instructions for updating your email and phone number in SURF. Make sure you carefully read and understand everything about how the wait list works. You'll need to check your email daily, and pay for the class if you are auto-enrolled, or you will be dropped from the class as well as the wait list. IF YOU HAVE TAKEN A COURSE THREE TIMES (EARNING A GRADE OF D, F, or W), YOU WILL NOT BE ABLE TO ENROLL. SEE NOTE AT BOTTOM.

Students who seek to enroll in one of my closed class MUST get on the wait list.
Click here for wait list procedures:

I give out permission numbers to students on the wait list if space becomes available in the class at the start of the semester. DO NOT CALL OR EMAIL ME TO OBTAIN A PERMISSION NUMBER. Get on the wait list immediately if a class is full. If you are on the wait list and there is room in the class I will email you instructions about how to get a permission number. Check email daily and follow any instructions and deadlines given in the email.
NOTE: Permission numbers may be used for one reason only: to allow a student to register in a closed class only if the student would have been allowed to enroll in the class if the class was not closed--in other words, no enrollment problems except that the class is full. Permission numbers do not override prerequisites, holds, debts, class conflicts, repeats, add deadlines or any other enrollment restrictions. If SURF does not allow you to enroll in an open class or get on the wait list, contact Admissions or a counselor. If you earned a W, D or F in the a course 3 times already, you will not be allowed to enroll in it again.

If you do not get in a math class this semester, please enroll as early as possible for the next semester. Math classes (especially online ones) are very popular and fill quickly.

More info about Enrollment Policies and Procedures can be found at:

Prerequisite info: A student who does not meet the prerequisite for a class or is unable to enroll in an open class in SURF must contact Admissions or a counselor.

To determine if my course will count as a high school course, contact Admissions or a Counselor at MiraCosta AND at the high school.

Information from Admissions and Records about Repeating Classes

The maximum number of enrollments, including withdrawals (W’s), for regular courses will be limited to THREE. Please plan carefully.

Math courses cannot generally be repeated once the student receives a grade equivalent to a “C” or better. Students who receive a grade of D, F, NP or W, may repeat up to two times (a total of three enrollments). In the case of D, F, and NP grades, if a subsequent grade (other than W or MW or I) is received, the first grade will be bracketed and does not count in the grade point average. A student may have a substandard grade bracketed in this manner up to two times.

Possible additional repetitions
Students who have not successfully completed a course in the above scenarios, may petition for an additional repetition. The student must provide documentation to prove that there were extenuating circumstances beyond their control which resulted in the unsuccessful completion of the class in question. Students may also petition for an additional repetition (even after successful completion) if the course has a recency requirement and that there has been a significant lapse of time since the previous enrollment. The student must submit the petition to the Committee on Exceptions (documentation is required) and allow ample time for review prior to enrollment. Only one petition per course for extenuating circumstances OR significant lapse of time may be approved.
