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 and problem solving skills. 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 20 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. Each test will cover the material presented since the previous test The tests will be given during classtime.
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 quizzes and exams you may use only a calculator and writing utensils; I will give you an equation sheet.
Syllabus:
Below is the anticipated schedule of what we'll cover. The dates of
the tests are fixed; on principle I do not change them so that students
can plan for them. Near the end of the semester, I generally have
flexibility in what we cover.
If you have a preference for what we might cover, please feel free
to provide feedback.
