There will be daily homework, due at the beginning of class (excluding exam days). Homework will be posted on Pioneerweb. The lowest three homework scores will be dropped. Homework will have a three componenets: reading, exercises, and computing.
There will be two in-class, midterm exams, tentatively scheduled for Wednesday, October 10 and Wednesday, November 14. These midterm exams will test the material covered since the previous exam.
The final exam is scheduled for Friday, May 21, at 9:00 am. The final exam is three hours and will be comprehensive. Do not make arrangements to leave campus prior to the final exam. (Such situations will result in the loss of a letter grade on the final exam.)
Absences permitted by the college (athletics, performance, religious observation, etc.) must be coordinated prior to the class period in order to make arrangements for the missed homework or exams. This coordination must be done in person prior to the absence.
If you have specific physical, psychiatric or learning disabilities and require accommodations, please let me know early in the semester so that your learning needs may be appropriately met. You will need to provide documentation of your disability to the Associate Dean and Director of Academic Advising, Joyce Stern, located in the lower level of the Forum (x3702).
