Warning: I reserve the right to make changes to the syllabus
at any
time during the term by announcing them in class and on my web page.
Grading: Grades will
be based mainly upon multiple quizzes and homework assignments. A
plus and
minus grading scale
will be used to
assign final grades. The final grade weighting of student work is
estimated in the table below.
Homeworks 
20% 
Weekly Quizzes OR Quizzes and
Comprehenisve Final 
80% 
Total 
100% 
Exams and Quizzes: There will be a quiz each week, covering the
previous week's material. You
will have the option of dropping your
two lowest quiz scores and taking the final OR counting all quiz scores
and not taking the final. No makeup quizzes will be given. If
you miss a quiz you will receive a 0.
Homework:
Regular homework is expected and is a regular part of any math course.
Your homework is due each day at the
start of class. Homework must be stapled and should have your
name, the couse and section number clearly visible. No late homework
will be accepted.
Academic Honesty: The work you do for this course will be your own,
unless otherwise specified.
You are not to submit other people's
work and represent it as your own. I consider academic
honesty to be at the core of the University's activities in education
and
research. Academic honesty is expected at all times in this course.
Cheating is an attack on the efforts of myself and fellow students
and, above all, on the cheater's integrity. Those caught cheating will
be dealt
with to the full extent allowed under University policy.
