Your instructor is Dyslexic and is very sensitive to and dedicated to ensuring that no
discrimination on any basis, including disability, is tolerated in this class. And, you get points
when I transpose numbers, etc!!! My disadvantage is your advantage, but you must pay
attention- if you snooze, you loose!
Course Requirements and Grading Criteria:
Homework: Homework will be assigned at the end of each section in the text. You
are allowed to assist each other on homework but a student must not turn in
someone else’s work as their own. Late homework will not be accepted, unless you
can convince me otherwise. If there are extreme circumstances, contact your
Instructor.
Exams: During the semester there will be exams/tests/quizzes after each section,
at the end of the chapter and a humongous final- you lucky duckys you. The class
period prior to each exam will include a review. The final exam is comprehensive and
all students will be required to take the Final Exam.
Grading:
Grading – Points are assigned for all work- homework, quizzes, tests and final. Your grade is
found by dividing your total points accrued by the total points possible! Then grades are
assigned to this percentage as shown below:
A: 90 – 100
B: 80 – 89 C: 70 – 79 D: 60 – 69 F: Below 60
Tentative Schedule: Last page- one schedule for the current edition (blue book),
the other for the previous edition (green book)
Academic Honesty: Disciplinary action for academic misconduct is the responsibility of
the faculty member assigned to this course. The faculty member is charged with assessing
the gravity of any case of academic dishonesty, and with giving sanctions to any student
involved.
This schedule is subject to CHANGE.
Assignments are reviewed each class meeting and any changes will be noted at that time.
Note: EOO is Every Other Odd- do1, skip 3, do 5, etc
ODD is just do the odd problems, 1, 3, 5, etc.
