GRADING & EXAMS: THE ABOVE EXAM DATES ARE TENTATIVE. All work must be shown in order to receive credit. This holds for all exams including the final, all quizzes, and homework. Important note: If no work is shown, you may receive zero credit even if your answer is correct.
HW will be graded quickly based upon neatness, completeness, and correctness. You are responsible for checking your answers. Odd problem answers can be found in the back of your textbook. Even problem answers will be provided either in discussion section or via HW grading. Except for the double quiz, we will drop your lowest quiz score. The double quiz will be worth double a normal quiz and cannot be dropped.
You are required to bring identification to all exams. You are required to pick up your exams and keep them until the end of the semester. The final exam will be cumulative.
THERE IS NO CURVE IN THIS CLASS, but improvement may be taken into consideration.
If there is a mistake in
grading, you must report this mistake within one week from when the
exam, homework, etc. has been handed back to the class (whether or not
you picked up your exam, homework, etc).
Your grades will be posted on ICON.
Sections to be covered: We will cover most of chapter 1 - 6 and some supplementary material as time allows. You should read all sections/handouts/web material corresponding to covered material and/or assigned problems. There may be test questions related to this reading even if not covered in class.
Attendance and absences: Your attendance at each scheduled class meeting and discussion section is expected. You are responsible for material covered in class and announcements made during class; these may include changes in the syllabus. Absences from exams will require a compelling reason, and must be arranged with your instructor in advance.
You may collaborate with other students on the homework; however, each individual student is responsible for turning in your own homework in your own words. Copying is not collaboration and will be prosecuted under scholastic dishonesty. Any significant collaboration should be acknowledged.
