GROUND RULES for MA 15900 SPRING 2010 • 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 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. Most of the homework will be completed and graded online. The six lowest online homework grades will not be counted at the end of the semester. • QUIZZES A quiz will be given every Tues. and Thurs. starting on 1/14/10, except on exam days. No make-up or early quizzes will be given for any reason. The three lowest quiz grades will not be counted at the end of the semester. To have a fourth quiz grade (or more) not counted 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 2, 2010, 8:00-9:30 PM EXAM 2: Thursday, March 11, 2010, 8:00-9:30 PM EXAM 3: Tuesday, April 20, 2010, 8:00-9:30 PM **Missing an Exam: Contact the course coordinator immediately, or as soon as the situation allows, if you miss an exam for any reason (email: odavis@math.purdue.edu ). Inform your Tu/Th instructor as well. Make-up exams can only be approved in writing 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. 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. 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 no later than two business days before the exam takes place. If you have an emergency situation that will prevent you from attending an evening exam, you must contact Owen Davis as soon as the situation allows , preferably in person or if necessary by email (do not use voicemail). To aviod missing important information, the sooner you contact Mr. Davis, the better.
