The quizzes will be given in the last 20 minutes of the class on the days shown on tentative
schedule. The lowest score of quizzes will be dropped to accommodate for absence. The 50minute exams will be given in the last 50 minutes of the class on the days shown on tentative
schedule. Any change in the scheduling of quizzes or exams will be announced in the class.
Attendance– Students are expected to attend on time for all lectures. Attendance will be taken.
You are responsible for all the material covered. When a student is absent, it is the student’s
responsibility to obtain missed material from classmates.
Make-up Policy-There will be no make-up exams or quizzes. Any missed quiz will receive a
score of 0. A missed exam will receive a score of 0 unless a valid reason is presented before the
time of the exam or after the exam in the case of an emergency. Only extreme situations with a
documented excuse will allow a student to be excused from an exam. The instructor determines
whether or not the situation mentioned above is extreme. Students must look at this syllabus
carefully and plan well ahead: Advance travel schedules (business or personal) are NOT excuses.
The score for the missed exam will then be determined from the corresponding chapter questions
on the final exam.
Grade-change Policy- If you have questions regarding grading of any graded material, you
should submit your doubt to the instructor, on the day the instructor hands back the material,
before leaving the classroom. No grading change will be made once the material has left the
classroom.
Mathematics Learning Center (MLC) - The Math Learning Center will be open this summer.
Hours will be announced in class as soon as they are available. For more information, visit
http://www.math.msu.edu/currentstudents/learningcenter
Integrity of Scholarship and Grades– All students are expected to adhere to the University’s
policy concerning academic integrity. It is covered in the Spartan Life booklet under General
Student Regulations. According to the handbook, “no student shall claim or submit the work of
another as one’s own.” For more information about this and other scholarship issues, please
consult the handbook or visit the Spartan Life web site at http://splife.studentlife.msu.edu/
