Participation: In this class I will be using the iclicker to measure class participation during lecture. The device can be purchased at the bookstore. It will be used to measure your response to questions and topics, which will enable me to know how well you are understanding the given material. It will also be used to start discussions on new topics. Your reward for participating in class on 80% (13 days) of the lectures will be 30 points. These 30 points will be used to replace your lowest quiz score. You must have your iclicker with you to participate . The iclicker will also be used for extra credit problems. Clicking in for someone else is considered cheating and will be treated as such. If caught you will lose ALL iclicker points as well as any extra credit points and be referred to the Academic Integrity Office and prosecuted to the full extent as outlined in the Academic Honesty Policy of UCSD. Homework: We will be using an online homework and learning system called ALEKS. If you did not take the summer prep course you will need to take an initial assessment in order to complete the assigned homework. If you took the summer prep course you will not need to retake the assessment. This initial assessment evaluates your knowledge as you are entering the course. The
