Attendance: Perfect attendance is expected, and students are responsible for all material covered. Arriving late or leaving early will count as missing HALF a class. Any student missing the equivalent of 4 classes is not eligible to receive credit for the course. If a W grade is appropriate it will be given, if not, the student will receive an F. No excuse will be considered if it is not presented in writing and produced in advance when possible.

Make-ups: No make-ups are given for any reason. When valid excuses are produced in writing, work may be replaced by equivalent work from the final exam. One quiz can be missed without excuse.

Exams: There will be five tests at the testing center with no time limit, one timed in-class exams midterm and a timed final exam. Each exam is usually about 15 to 25 short answer questions. There are NO multiple choice questions, showing all work is required even for calculator problems, and partial credit is given for correct work shown on exam. No scrap paper, books, notes, formulas, or calculator programs may be used with the exam.

Quizzes: Students should expect to hand in homework every class, as this will make up part of the quiz grade. The rest of the quiz grade will be made of questions from the homework or lecture. For some quizzes, the homework may be used as reference for the quiz, so do your homework! Homework is not accepted late.

Academic Integrity: Students are encouraged to work together on homework. Students are expected to do their own work. Students who cheat will fail the course.

Classroom: Do not smoke or eat in class. No visitors (especially children) may attend. Disruptive students are expected to leave. Cell phones, beepers, and pagers can be disruptive and must be silent.

Grade: The midterm exam is worth 20% of your grade. The final is worth 40% of the grade, and a grade of 50% is required to pass this course. The remaining 20% of the grade is composed of tests, quizzes, and classroom participation.
