3 – One hour exams @ 30 points =90
5 quizzes @ 2 pts
100 Make-up tests will not be given and may require taking a make-up cumulative final during the
last day of class to make up the grade
1. Quizzes will be approximately bi-weekly.
2. Tests: one 8 ½ X 11 hand written note sheet may be used during each test. Otherwise,
tests and quizzes will be closed book
Homework will be assigned but not collected. The solutions to problems will be posted or given
by the TA. Selected problems will be worked in class. Quizzes will reflect the homework
assigned and topics covered during class.
This class moves at a fast pace and covers a lot of material. If you miss class or are having
problems understanding materials, please see us or you could get behind very quickly. Syllabus
