GROUND RULES for MA 15300 Spring 2009 CLASS PERIOD Students are expected to attend every class meeting and to read the appropriate sections of the text before coming to class. Instructors may not have time to cover every topic in class. HOMEWORK /QUIZZES A daily score will be given for almost every class, starting with the third one (Friday, 01/16/09). The daily score will typically be a short, 2-3 question quiz covering the assignment due that day. Paper and pencil homework will only be collected occasionally, as most of it is done online. Completing each homework assignment (online or by hand) is certainly your best way to be prepared for quizzes and exams. No make-ups will be allowed for the daily scores or online homework, for any reason. The four lowest scores for each will not be counted. To have a fifth score (or more) not counted at the end of the semester will require acceptable written justification for having missed the fifth (or more). EXAMS There are three multiple-choice, machine-graded evening exams scheduled for your class this semester. The dates are as follows. ( Mark them on your calendar.) EXAM 1: Wednesday, February 4, 2009, 8:00-9:00 PM, Hall of Music EXAM 2: Tuesday, March 3, 2009, 8:00-9:00 PM, Hall of Music EXAM 3: Monday, April 13, 2009, 6:30-7:30 PM, Hall of Music Missing an Exam: If you miss an exam for any reason, contact the course coordinator immediately and inform your instructor. Make-up exams can only be approved in writing by the course coordinator, Cari Van Tuinen (MATH 810, 494-7920, cvt@math.purdue.edu). Make-up exams will be allowed for valid reasons. For non-valid reasons, a make- up may be allowed with a grade penalty being deducted from the student’s earned score. Not knowing the right date, time or location of an exam is NOT a valid reason for missing it and will thus be imposed by a grade penalty. Academic Conflict: If you have an academic conflict with any of the evening exams (e.g. another exam or class at the same time) you must let the course coordinator know no later than two business days before the exam takes place. Emergency: If you have an emergency situation that will prevent you from attending an evening exam you must contact the course coordinator by telephone or in person (not by voice mail or e-mail) no later than 2:00 PM on the day of the exam. Extenuating circumstances that prevent you from contacting the course coordinator (by phone or in
