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! 
Math 23 - Differential Equations, Math 40 - Linear Algebra and Math 20, 21 - Calculus 1 and Calculus 2  classes usually have Power Point slides for most of our lectures hosted in Canvas. Canvas allows 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 SP18: Online and a Hybrid  Intermediate Algebra classes will both have two proctored in-class tests: one midterm and the final test. Midterm test may be combined with the final test. A credit for the Final test may be also applied to a missing proctored test. The schedule of our final examination is dictated by Solano Final's Week Schedule. It is Friday, May 18, 1:30-3:30,room 505. Attendance on Fridays is not part of the grade for Math 104 hybrid. Friday class is for lectures only , and lectures are recorded and stored for two weeks. You can participate in these lectures distantly using Canvas. 
Both 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. 
SP18  Math20 (Calculus 1) 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 will help us in class and with the homework.

If you have not bought our book for Math20 or 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 for the first time, you all should have a book!

 Summer 18  class has two proctored in-class tests: Test4 (ch 4 +Ch8) , and Final test (the dates are in agreement with Solano Final's week schedule and will be 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 can also opt for using the final test score as a credit for any one missed midterm. Both summer 18 online course and SP18  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.  H
owever, you may be dropped from my roster for inactivity in the class.
