Unformatted text preview: MA 15300Y Spring 2012 Ground Rules COURSE WEBPAGE The course website for MA15300Y is www.math.purdue.edu/ma153y . This is where the Assignment Sheet, Ground Rules, and Schedule can be found. All other course materials are available on the main course website www.math.purdue.edu/ma153 . Check the course website frequently for new materials and ALWAYS visit the course website before requesting information from your instructor or the course coordinator (what you are requesting may already be available on the website). CLASS PERIOD Students are expected to watch every video lesson and review each PowerPoint presentation covering each lesson. Students should also complete the PDF outline available with each video lesson. These resources are available on the Schedule and also on the course website, www.math.purdue.edu/ma153 . HOMEWORK There will be 40 homework assignments during the course of the semester. All homework assignments will be completed online using WebAssign. Students should visit the course website ( www.math.purdue.edu/ma153 ) and use the WebAssign Intro link under Online Homework to get started. All students are allowed a two-week grace period during which no payment is required. Students will have 100 attempts to correctly answer each homework problem, so there should be no reason why a student would not receive 100% on each homework assignment. Also, a 10% bonus is given for problems successfully completed 12 hours before the due date, so students will have the opportunity to exceed 100% on each homework assignment (check WebAssign for all due dates and times). Completing each homework assignment is certainly your best way to be prepared for quizzes and exams. It is highly recommended that students use the web browser Mozilla Firefox when working on WebAssign. It is also highly recommended that students complete all homework problems on paper before entering their final answers on WebAssign. Late homework assignments will not be accepted and there are no make-up assignments. At the end of the semester, each student’s four lowest homework scores will be dropped. QUIZZES There will be 15 quizzes during the course of the semester. All quizzes will be completed online using WebAssign. No bonus is awarded for quizzes. Check the Schedule or WebAssign for due dates and times. No make-up quizzes will be allowed for any reason. At the end of the semester, each student’s two lowest quiz scores will be dropped. To have a third score (or more) dropped will require acceptable written justification. The purpose of the dropped quizzes and homework assignments is not to boost your grade, but rather to provide flexibility in the event that personal situations might arise that prevent you from completing an assignment or quiz. USE YOUR DROPS WISELY....
