Class meets MWF from 14:00 to 14:50 (2:00 p.m. to 2:50).
I expect you to attend all classes and to keep current with the readings,
lectures, and exercises.
For each hour of in-class time, expect you will have to do about two to three additional hours of work for this class. So, in a week with 2.5 hours of in-class time, you might spend up to about 7.5 hours on additional work. If you don't have that much time available, you should take fewer units.
TESTS & GRADING:
Homework (frequent - some HW will be due on most class days) - 25%
Quizzes (two or more) - 50%
Comprehensive Final Exam - 25%
Scoring Exception:A student who gets a failing average on tests (quizzes + final) gets a failing course grade, no matter what the homework scores are. I will use the 25-50-25 weights indicated above if the student has a passing test average.
You'll have to work a lot of homework problems to learn what you need
I require you to give me your homework at the beginning of class on
the due date.
You must neatly and clearly hand print and/or machine print your homework
8½-inch by 11-inch paper
The paper must have no ragged edges. We want all the sheets of paper
we get from all the students to be neatly cut to the same dimensions.
On the top right of each page, put your name, the course number
(Math 2300), the section number, and the page number.
Neatly staple the pages together at the upper left corner,
at a 45-degree angle,
SLANTING LIKE THIS --------------> / NOT slanting like this ---------> \
I will not accept or give you any credit for late homework.
It is late if you don't give it to me at the start of class on the due date.
Hint: Most homework problems apply to a specific section in the text book.
It may be helpful if you try to work each problem immediately after
you read the material in the text to which the problem pertains.
Academic Honesty: The work you do for this course must be exclusively your own work, except where I give specific instructions otherwise. If you violate that rule, you are attacking the integrity and the core values of our educational system. If you are caught cheating, expect to be dealt with to the full extent allowed under University policy.
