Welcome to my web page. I hope you will find all important files for your class!
Please scroll down to the bottom and pick the right folder. If you find any errors  in the documents presented here, or in Canvas, including hanging links, please contact me ASAP via email: Svetlana.Podkolzina@solano.edu , you will be awarded an extra credit in our class! 
Administration of Solano decided not to offer Math104 online for the Fall 17. Please make your voices heard and email me,  if you were planing  on taking online Math104  in FA17 or SP18. I am trying to make FA17 80932 and 80937 Math104 to be more practice friendly classes oriented towards students success. Some of the work in these classes may be performed distantly depending on your preferences.

Math 23 - Differential Equations, Math 40 - Linear Algebra and Math 20, 21 - Calculus 1 and Calculus 2  classes will have Power Point slides for most of our lectures hosted in Canvas. Canvas will allow us to communicate with each other via webcam in case you need help and support from me or your classmates. 
Math21 -Calculus 2 - here you can find the most up-to-date information for  your class.
Math104- Intermediate Algebra. All of  Intermediate Algebra classes will use  MyMathLab (you must buy an access code) and  Canvas Management System (free for you). MML access kit should be ONLY bought from the website www.MyMathLab.com or from Solano bookstore. It always contains complete E-book (.pdf file), and you can then buy a hard copy of the book of an earlier and cheaper (!) edition, for example here:
Used edition for the hard copy of the book we are currently using in MML is here:
I have not used these options myself, but feedback from students was positive.
Summary of the syllabus (when available) has a brief description of class procedures and organization. 
FA17 Math104 80932 Monday+ Friday meets on Monday for the lecture 12:30 and then on Friday the classroom is flipped, and we mostly meet to work in groups for practice, on projects and homework. Some of the work is done on computers. 
FA17 Math104 80937 TTh meets one day of the week for the lecture with limited number of examples at 5:00 P.M. and then on alternate day of the week we mostly meet  for practice, and to work on projects and homework 5:00-7:15 P.M. The idea is to secure embedded tutor, who together with me will help with the homework and reduce amount of the work outside of our classroom.
FA17 Math21 (Calculus II) 80889 TTh meets on Thursdays for the lecture  at 2:00 P.M. and then on Tuesdays we mostly meet  for practice, work on projects and homework 2:00-4:15 P.M. I secured funding for an embedded tutor, who together with me will help with the homework and reduce amount of the necessary work outside of our classroom.

If you have not bought our book for Math21 yet, please check out a book on Amazon, I found this link

http://www.amazon.com/gp/offer-listing/049501169X/ref=sr_1_2_olp?ie=UTF8&qid=1389388130&sr=8-2&keywords=stewart+single+calculus+variable+6E&condition=used

When you pick your seller, please check his/her ratings before ordering, I have no experience with this and I am not endorsing anyone. However, in the FA15 , when I sent out this link, all of my students were able to buy this book cheap.

This book (if used) currently costs anywhere from 75 cents to $4.49 in June ,  the shipping is slightly higher =$3.99-4.99.

But when we meet in the Fall 2017, you all should have a book!

 Both Summer 17  classes have two proctored in-class tests: Test4 (ch 4 +Ch8) ,July 24th, 1-3:00P.M. ,3:00- 5:00 P.M. room 1521, and Final test, August 3rd, 1-3:00P.M., 3-5:00P.M. , room 1521 (the dates are available on a calendar for each class). Proctored Final test is mandatory, it takes place on campus and cannot be missed. However, Test4 midterm can be taken on the date of the Final test, you have to pick 1-3:00 PM time slot then. You can also opt for using the final test score as a credit for the missed midterm. Both summer 17 online courses and Fall 17 f2f Intermediate Algebra can use drop-in tutoring  on any of three campuses (
main campus in the room 1525 (Math Activity Center))
Attendance is not weighted as part of the grade in any of my classes. In college we all have different circumstances , and we are mature enough to decide for ourselves what is best for us.

Final face-to-face examination for Summer 17  classes is on August 3rd, 60469 preferably 1:30-3:30P.M., 60470 preferably 
3:30-5:30P.M. ,  room 505
