MA 11100 Ground Rules Fall 2010 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 frequently 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 scaled to 50 points at the end of the semester. There are a few problems in bolded print on the assignment sheet that are to be completed by students on their own, but these problems are not usually collected. However, students are responsible for these problems and instructors have the option of occasionally collecting them. A quiz will be given in class almost daily, starting with the third class period (Friday, 08/27). 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. The three lowest scores for quizzes and the three lowest scores for online homework 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 quizzes (or more). Only the course coordinator can extend a homework deadline for an individual student or for a class or grant additional excused absences or excused quizzes. 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 21 st , 8:00 PM , Elliott Hall of Music EXAM 2: Thursday, October 14 th , 8:00 PM , Elliott Hall of Music EXAM 3: Thursday, November 11 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, [email protected], 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 days (M-F) before the exam takes place. Emergency: If you have an emergency situation that will prevent you from attending an evening exam, you must contact Charlotte Bailey 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 Charlotte, the better. 20-Minute Rule:
