Main Content
Courses
Mathematics majors may earn a bachelor's degree in the College of Engineering, Computing, Technology, and Mathematics and the College of Liberal Arts. Besides specific College and University requirements, all these programs include calculus, linear algebra and computer programming. Beyond this core, majors consult with a mathematics advisor to plan a program suited to individual interests and goals.
A Bachelor of Science degree in the College of Engineering, Computing, Technology, and Mathematics can provide the foundation for a career in education, industry, the actuarial profession, government, business or for graduate study followed by an academic career in mathematics research and college teaching.
The mathematics component of the Bachelor of Arts degree in the College of Liberal Arts is identical to the College of Engineering, Computing, Technology, and Mathematics program. Majors also take a secondary concentration consisting of two or three approved courses in some field in which mathematics is applicable.

 Online students must use a community college testing center or a public library.
 Most community colleges have a distance education office or test proctoring center.
 Many public libraries offer proctoring as well. Sometimes a fee is involved.
 Proctoring on the SIU campus is free.
 It is the online student’s responsibility to schedule a time and get the proctoring form filled out prior to the test date.
 The website listed below contains the proctoring form and all of the information needed to find a proctor. Please contact them with proctor questions!
 Your proctor must fill out a form online at the website below and approval can take up to one week.

Planned Offerings
LONG TERM SCHEDULE – EFFECTIVE SPRING 2016
In order to help students plan their academic programs, the Department of Mathematics tries to schedule its courses on a regular basis over a two year period. The following tables list the current scheduling plan for mathematics courses. Courses that are not listed are infrequently offered. This schedule is subject to change.
Each semester, including the summer, one or more 500level special topics courses are also offered.

For many students, skills and knowledge from previous courses can disappear very quickly, even during the short breaks between semesters. This may mean you're not in peak math condition for your upcoming class. We're here to get you in shape.
Oftentimes when introducing a new topic, the instructor will use concepts covered in a previous course. If this prerequisite material is not part of a student's core knowledge, the new topic will not be clear. The student becomes lost, but this is not really due to the new material. Rather, the student has forgotten (or never 'learned') the prerequisite material on which the new topic is based. Our intent is to offer help with the necessary background material before this problem arises.

The final exams posted here are the actual exams given in the semester indicated, and are intended to give you an idea what course material has been emphasized in the past. Your final exam this semester may not contain questions of all the types represented here, and may contain questions of other types. If you suspect that you have found an inaccuracy in either an exam question or its solution, please notify us at Webmaster and we will be happy to check it.

Guidelines for Mathematics Online Classes
Math courses online at SIU!
Are you interested in taking College Algebra (Math 108), Trigonometry (Math 109), Finite Math (Math 139), Business Calculus (Math 140), Precalculus (Math 111), Calculus 1 (Math 150), Introduction to Statistics (Math 282), Technical Math (125), or Contemporary Mathematics (Math 101) online at Southern Illinois University? Here are several issues worth considering.
**The first thing to be considered before signing up for an online math course is that you will need to have 3 exams plus a final exam proctored during the semester at either Testing Services at SIUC or if you are not a local student, with an approved proctor at a public library or testing center. Testing Services will help find a proctor if needed.
1. How is the course designed/set up?
The course is set up similar to a traditional course with the only exception being students will view recorded lectures. For Math 108 only, this includes the no calculator policy. The online course is not “easier” than the traditional course. In fact, it requires more selfmotivation. You should not take this course if math is a struggle for you.
In Math 108, Math 109, Math 111, Math 125, Math 282, Math 150, Math 139, and Math 140, there will be approximately 3 written exams and a written final. For Math 101, the tests will be taken online (proctored). Local students (within a 40 minute drive) should take the exams on campus at the Testing Center on the 7th floor of Morris Library. Other students will be allowed to use a college or university testing center or a public library as a proctor. Students will need to arrange a proctor at the beginning of the semester. Students are responsible for scheduling their test day at least 2 days in advance.
Here is the link to the Testing Services website. The setup of proctoring and scheduling of exams will go through them.
https//testingservices.siu.edu/siuexams/extendedcampusexams/index.php
2. How will assignments be submitted?
All homework and quizzes are submitted into Mylabsplus or WebAssign (depending on the course). Assignments have specific opening and closing dates. The courses are not selfpaced.
For most courses, written assignments (in the form of worksheets) will be scanned in and submitted to your virtual drop box.
3. What type of help is available?
There are lecture videos for each section covered in the course syllabus. These videos cover the same material and/examples that appear in the course notes.
Alongside every homework problem is a list of learning aids including Help Me Solve This, Videos, Animations and access to ETextbook.
For students who are able to come to campus, the math computer lab in Morris Library (Room 680) is staffed with tutors and computers on MondayThursday from 58 p.m. starting the 2nd week of each semester.
Virtual office hours will be offered by the instructor. Traditional office hours in the Neckers building will also be offered by your instructor.
4. What materials must be purchased?
For Math 101, 108, 109, 111, 125, 139, 140, and 282 you must purchase access to My Labs Plus. It can be purchased from inside the classroom for around $90. For math 150 you will need a Webassign access code. You will have access to the ebook in all courses. Math 101, Math 109, Math 111, Math 140, Math 139, and 150 will require a scientific calculator. No graphing calculators or cell phones will be allowed. We recommend the TI30XIIS. For Math 108 you can use a 4 function calculator (should cost no less than $5). No scientific calculators are allowed.
For Math 101, you must purchase the Math 101 Course Notes from a local bookstore. If you are not a local student, you can purchase them online at https://www.bkstr.com and have them shipped to you.
For Math 108, you must purchase the Math 108 Course Notes from a local bookstore. If you are not a local student, you can purchase them online at https://www.bkstr.com and have them shipped to you. The lecture notes include the worksheets that are submitted.
For Math 109, you must purchase the Math 109 Course Notes from a local bookstore. If you are not a local student, you can purchase them online at https://www.bkstr.com and have them shipped to you. The lecture notes include the worksheets that are submitted.
For Math 111, you will not need to purchase any additional items.
For Math 140, you will not need to purchase any additional items.
For Math 139, you will not need to purchase any additional items.
For Math 150, you will not need to purchase any additional items.
All enrolled students will receive an email (to your SIU email account) one week prior to the start of the semester explaining how to access the course.

Off Campus Students  Not Local (NOT Living within 30 minutes of SIU)
All Math online students who are not local students (i.e. not living within approximately 30 minutes of SIU) and plan on taking online exams at a location other than SIU must find a proctor at the beginning of the semester. If your proctor charges a fee and you are unable to pay, you will need to drop the course.
