1 MATH 15200 GROUND RULES SPRING 2010 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. Refer to your textbook pages for help. HOMEWORK/QUIZZES Most homework will be done online using MyMathLab (coursecompass). Doing your homework is your best way to be prepared for quizzes and exams. Homework is worth 50 points. There are a few problems in bolded print on the assignment sheet that are to be completed by students on their own (not on coursecompass), but these problems are not collected. However, students are responsible for these problems. There will be some worksheets of homework problems that will not be on coursecompass and will be found under ‘other information’ on the course web page at www.math.purdue.edu/MA15200. It is extremely important that students complete these problems. Instructors have the option of collecting these worksheet problems for a daily score in place of or in addition to a quiz. A quiz will be given in class almost daily, starting with the third class period (Friday, 01/15). No make-ups will be allowed for the daily quizzes for any reasons. Only under unusal circumstances will an extention of a deadline for an online homework be granted. Only the course coordinator can extend a homework deadline for an individual student or for a class. The three lowest scores for each will not be counted. To have a fourth score (or more) not counted at the end of the semester will require acceptable written justification for having missed all four (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: Tuesday,February 9 th , 6:30 PM , Elliott Hall of Music EXAM 2: Wednesday, March 3 rd , 8:00 PM , Elliott Hall of Music EXAM 3: Wednesday, April 14 th , 6:30 PM , Elliott Hall of Music Missing an Exam: If you miss an exam for any reason, contact the course coordinator immediately. Make-up exams can only be approved in writing by the course coordinator, Charlotte Bailey (MATH 802, baileycm@purdue.edu, 496-3145). Make-up exams will be allowed for valid reasons. For non-valid reasons, a make-up may be allowed with a grade penalty of 20 points 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. Academic Conflict: If you have an academic conflict with any of the evening exams (e.g. another exam or class at the same time) you must let the course coordinator know no later than two business (M-F) days before the exam takes place.
