MA 15200 Ground Rules Spring 2012 1 CLASS PERIOD Students are expected to attend every class meeting and to read the appropriate sections of the text before coming to class. Instructors often may not have time to cover every topic in class. Refer to your textbook sections for help. Cell phones should be turned off during class and not used. Be considerate of other students when in class. Do not talk or disturb the instructor or other students. HOMEWORK/QUIZZES Most homework will be done online using Pearson MyMathLab. Doing your homework is your best way to be prepared for quizzes and exams. Homework assignments are scaled to 50 points of the 600 points toward the grade. There are a few problems in bolded print on the assignment sheet that are to be completed by students on their own (not online), but these problems are not usually collected. However, students are responsible for these problems and instructors have the option of collecting them and score as part of a quiz. There will be some worksheets of homework problems that will not be online and will be found under other information/worksheets on the course web page at www.math.purdue.edu/MA15200. It is extremely important that students complete these problems. Your instructor has the option of collecting these problems for a quiz score or part of a quiz score. A short quiz will be given in class almost daily , starting with the third class period (Friday, 1/13). Quizzes are scaled to 50 points out of 600 points toward the grade. Quizzes will be usually unannounced. Assume you have a quiz each class day, except the optional review days and during ‘dead week’. The quiz is usually over the previous class’s lesson. Quizzes are not usually cooperative, take-home, or open book/notes. Worksheets may be counted as quizzes. The bolded homework problems may be collected and counted as part of a quiz. No make-ups will be allowed for the quizzes or online homework, for any reason. Only under unusual circumstances will an extention of a deadline for an online homework be granted. Only the course coordinator can extend a deadline for a homework assignment. The three lowest scores for homework assignments and the three lowest scores for quizzes will not be counted . To have a fourth quiz score (or more) not counted at the end of the semester will require acceptable written justification for having missed all four (or more) and the approval of the course coordinator. Note: If you have documentation for a fourth or more excused absences, you need to see the course coordinator. Only she can excuse additional quizzes. You must provide her with written justification for all absences to that point. If additional excused absences or quizzes are granted, she will notify your instructor. Excused absences may be granted for documented illness or hospitalization, Purdue sponsored activities, death of an immediate family member or very close friend, or documented religious observances. The final decision on excused absences
