GROUND RULES for MA 15900 SPRING 2012 • CLASS PERIOD Students are expected to attend every class meeting. Before coming to a lecture , it is highly recommended that students read the appropriate sections of the text and attempt some of the homework problems . Instructors may not have time to cover every topic in class. • HOMEWORK The homework will be completed and graded online. Written homework will not be collected. However, doing all the homework problems is essential for success in this course and is certainly your best way to be prepared for quizzes and exams. The six lowest online homework grades will not be counted at the end of the semester. • QUIZZES A quiz will be given every Tu. and Th. starting on Tu. 1/10/2012, except on exam days. No make-up or early quizzes will be given for any reason. The four lowest quiz grades will not be counted at the end of the semester. To have a fifth quiz grade (or more) not counted will require acceptable written justification for having missed all five (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: Thursday, February 2, 2012, 8:00-9:30 PM EXAM 2: Thursday, March 1, 2012, 8:00-9:30 PM EXAM 3: Thursday, April 12, 2012, 8:00-9:30 PM **Warning: If there are special circumstances that may affect your ability to successfully complete an exam (illness, family emergency, etc.), before taking an exam you should definitely speak with the course coordinator, Owen Davis – even if you must do so at the exam site. The course coordinator will advise you of your options. **If you miss an Exam: Contact the course coordinator, Owen Davis ( odavis@math.purdue.edu ) immediately, or as soon as the situation allows. Make-up exams can only be approved by the course coordinator, Owen Davis (MATH 812). If you miss the exam for a non-valid reason , a make-up exam will still usually be allowed, but a grade penalty will be 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 an exam. **If you have an academic conflict (such as another exam or class at the same time) or other foreseeable conflict with an evening exam, you should contact Owen Davis ( odavis@math.purdue.edu ) no later than two business days before the exam takes place. During Exams - No one will be allowed to leave the exam site for the first 25 minutes of the exam. After that time, no one will be allowed to enter the exam site and take the exam. Students arriving after 25 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.
