Calculator: A graphics calculator is an important tool that will be used in this course. Students are expected to have a working calculator for each test and exam. No calculator swapping is permitted during testing periods.

Exams: There will be three tests and a final exam. The tests are scheduled for Wednesday, September 14; Friday, October 14; and Wednesday, November 30. The University has scheduled the final exam for Monday, December 12 from 8:00 - 10:00 am. (The University's Exam regulations will be strictly followed, in particular those regarding students with multiple exams that day. See ) Each test will be worth 100 points and the final exam worth 200 points.

Homework: Homework will be assigned regularly. Selected homework will be graded and a final score equivalent to one test, 100 points, will be assigned. Homework, whether assigned or not, is an essential component of the course.

Quizzes: There will be regular quizzes. The final score of one test, 100 points, will be assigned.

Attendance: Students are expected to attend every scheduled class, and to be familiar with the University Class Attendance policy as it appears in the General Catalog. It is the student's responsibility to keep informed of any announcements, syllabus adjustments or policy changes made during scheduled classes. Students are expected to behave in accordance with the Student Code of Conduct and the Code of Academic Integrity. The guiding principle of academic integrity is that a student's submitted work must be the student's own.

Grades: The total number of points available on exams, homework, and quizzes is 700.

The point cutoffs for grades will be no higher than those set forth in the following table

630 points (90%) for A

560 points (80%) for B

490 points (70%) for C

420 points (60%) for D

Students withdrawing from the course before October 14 will receive the grade W if they are passing at the time. Students will be considered to be passing at the time of withdraw if they have scored at least 50% on the work completed at that time. The University allows withdraws after October 14, but only with the Dean's signature. Late withdraws will be dealt with on a case by case basis, and requests for late withdraw with a W without a valid reason may or may not be honored.

The grade of I will be awarded if all the following conditions are met:

1. The student has completed all but a small portion of the required work.

2. The student has scored at least 50% on the work completed.

3. The student has a valid reason for not completing the course on time.

4. The student agrees to make up the material in a short period of time.

5. The student asks for the incomplete before grades are due, 48 hours after the final exam.
