MA 15300 Fall 2011 Ground Rules 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. There are supplemental videos and PowerPoint presentations provided on the MA 15300 webpage, http://www.math.purdue.edu/academic/courses/MA15300/ HOMEWORK /QUIZZES A daily score will be given for almost every class, starting with the third one (Friday, 08/26/11). The daily score will typically be a short, 2-3 question quiz covering the lesson from the previous class. It is important to complete each assignment before the next class to be prepared for these quizzes. Completing each homework assignment is certainly your best way to be prepared for quizzes and exams. It is highly recommended that you complete all homework problems on paper and then enter solutions online. 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. 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: Tuesday, September 20, 2011, 8:00 PM, ELLT 116 EXAM 2: Thursday, October 13, 2011, 8:00 PM, ELLT 116 EXAM 3: Tuesday, November 15, 2011, 8:00 PM, ELLT 116 Missing an Exam: If you miss an exam for any reason, contact the course coordinator and your instructor immediately. Make-up exams can only be approved in writing by the course coordinator, Patrick Devlin (MATH 804, 494-1918, [email protected]). Make-up exams will be allowed for valid reasons. You must have documentation for missing an exam (you must have a doctor note for illness, for example). 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. 20-Minute Rule: No one will be allowed to leave the exam site for the first 20 minutes of the exam. After that time, no one will be allowed to enter the exam site and take the exam. Students arriving after 20 minutes will be allowed to take the make-up exam. If they arrived late for a non- valid reason, a grade penalty will be deducted from the make-up exam score.

What students are saying

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
