MA 15200 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 often may not have time to cover every topic in class. Refer to your textbook lessons 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. 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 usually collected. However, students are responsible for these problems and instructors have the option of occasionally collecting them. There will be some worksheets of homework problems that will not be on coursecompass and will be found under other information/worksheets 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 problems for a 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, 08/27). No make-ups will be allowed for the quizzes or online homework, for any reason. Only under unusal circumstances will an extention of a deadline for an online homework be granted. Only the course coordinator can extend a deadline for a homework. 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). Note: If you have documentation for a fourth or more excused absence, you need to see the course coordinator. Only she can excuse additional absences or quizzes. You must provide her with written justification for all absences. If additional excused absences or quizzes are granted, she will notify your instructor. 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, 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:
