If a student knows in advance that they will be absent from class, it is in the students best interest to contact the instructor as soon as possible. Make-ups for exams and other missed coursework due to absence will not be allowed unless prior approval is granted to the student by the instructor or in the event of a documented and appropriate emergency situation, make-ups will be at the sole discretion of the instructor. Students arriving late or leaving class early without the permission of the instructor will be counted as absent. Attendance may affect grades in borderline cases.

Assignments: You are expected to complete all suggested homework problems on the suggested completion date. The average student in this class is expected to spend 2-3 hours outside of class for every hour spent in class. Some homework problems may be collected to be graded and you are expected to complete all homework in a timely manner even it is not collected to be graded. The instructor may also collect homework problems at any time to be graded without advanced notice, so be sure to complete all of the homework and bring it to class everyday. Working all of the suggested homework problems is essential

to your success in this class. Do not get behind. If you do get behind please see me for help immediately. I enjoy helping my students, so dont be afraid to come see me if you are having trouble. Suggested homework problems will be assigned in class throughout the duration of the course. Late assignments will

not be accepted unless by prior approval of the instructor.

Exams and Quizzes: Tentative exam times are suggested on the course outline below. Exact dates and material covered on exams will be announced in class prior to the exam date. Exams should be similar in content to the homework. Make-ups on exams will only be allowed if prior approval is given by the instructor or you have a legitimate and documented emergency deemed appropriate by the instructor. If you are absent for an exam, it is your responsibility to contact the instructor as soon as possible and to make arrangements for a make-up exam if allowed by the instructor. Do not assume that the instructor will contact you to arrange a make-up exam. Pop-quizzes may be given at anytime without advanced notice, so be sure to attend regularly. Your lowest exam score will be dropped. Final Exam: The date and time of the comprehensive final exam will be announced in class Calculator Usage: Calculators may be allowed on some portions of exams. I would recommend, but do not require a graphing calculator such as the TI-82, TI-83, TI-85, or TI-86. TI-89s , TI-92s and other symbolic calculators with computer algebra systems are not allowed on exams. I encourage the use of graphing tools and other types of calculators when doing homework assignments where appropriate, but it is important for you as a student not to become dependent on your calculator. In cases where calculators are allowed on a certain exams I will try to give you sufficient advanced notice. Cell Phones & Pagers: Cell phones and pagers must be turned off in the classroom Help: It is my sincere desire that you will succeed in this course. Make sure that you develop appropriate work habits at the beginning of the course that will enable you to succeed.
