|Quizzes & Calculator Labs||25%|
Homework: Homework assignments will be presented in class and will generally consist of problems from the required text. The homeworks will not be graded. Instead, quizzes will cover the material. Even though the homework will not be graded, the homework problems must be done in order to gain mastery of the material and skills necessary for both the quizzes and tests.
Quizzes: Quizzes will be roughly 30 minutes long, given in class, and will cover the current material. I will drop your two lowest quiz grades to allow for bad weeks and/or absences.
Tests: The class will have two tests as indicated on the syllabus.
Final: The final will be held during the time dictated by the Registrar during Exam Week.
Cheating: You are encouraged to work on homework problems with others. However, you must work alone on quizzes and tests. On both quizzes and exams you may use only a calculator and writing utensils; Calculators cannot be shared during quizzes and tests.
The material to be covered is flexible and subject to change. The test dates are fixed.
