HOMEWORK PROBLEMS The on—line class notes contain problems chosen to emphasize important course material. Working these problems should help students understand the course material and' prepare for tests. PRACTICE TESTS Practice tests are available over the Internet at the following‘ URL: http://einstein.math.tsu.edu:9080. The questions on the in-class unit tests M e ve similar to questions on e on- me practice tests. . - TEST/QUIZ POLICIES No makeu tests or earl tests or uizzes will be' iven. A test absence or quiz absence will be excused only if the student presents sui‘Ticient verifiable evidence of acceptable, extenuating, unavoidable circumstances.

GRADING There will be three unit tests, a cumulative final examination, and several short quizzes. Numerical course grades will be determined by the larger of AV] and Av2 where Avl = (SU+Q+4E)/10, Av2 = (4U+Q+5E)/10, U = test weighted average = (3T]+4T2+5T3)/]2, Q = quiz average, E = final exam grade. Letter grades will be determined from rounded numerical grades as follows. A: 90-100; B: 80-89; C: 70—79; D: 60-69; F: 0—59. Plus/Minus grades will be assigned to high/low numerical grades; for example,- 77.5 - 79.4 would be a C+, 69.5 — 724 would be a C-; analogous +/- grades would be assigned to other numerical grades. HELP CENTER The Help Center is located in 110 MCH (old EDU). The operating hours are MTWR 2:00—8:00 pm, The Help Center is closed on Fridays and on weekends. ACADEMIC DISHONESTY The academic honor system is followed strictly.
