ACADEMIC INTEGRITY POLICY
Scholastic dishonesty will not be tolerated and will be prosecuted to the fullest extent. You are expected to have read and understood the current issue of the student handbook regarding student responsibilities & rights, and the intellectual property policy information about procedures and what constitutes acceptable on-campus behavior.
Information contained in this syllabus, other than grading, late assignments, makeup work, and attendance policies, may be subject to change with advance notice, as deemed appropriate by the instructor.
The final grade for the course will be based on the exam scores, the quiz scores, average of the scores earned in the homework assignments, and the score received for your attitude. The overall average score (X) for the course is determined as follows:
X =0.70x(exam1 score + exam 2 score + exam 3 score + exam 4 score) + 0.15x(homework average)
+ 0.075x(attitude/participation/attendance score) + 0.075x(average quiz score)
Quizzes will be given at the beginning of class at unexpe3cted times. They take a short time. You have to be on time - no exceptions.
A: 90-100; B: 80-89; C: 70-79; D: 60-69
Homework assignments must be turned in on the due date, at the beginning of class. Once class starts, no homework will be accepted. Do not ask one of your classmates to turn in an assignment for you. It will not be accepted. Turn in your homework on neat paper and in an organized manner.
You are expected to attend class and are responsible for notes, homework assignments, and exams missed while being absent.
You are expected to take the exam on the scheduled date and time it is given. However, if for some acceptable reason you are not able to do so, then you must inform the instructor in advance. The instructor will then decide whether you will be allowed to take a make-up exam, depending on the validity of your excuse
Once class starts, the use of cell phone and/or pager, reading a newspaper, conducting private discussions, using the computer (unless asked by your instructor), working on anything that is not directly related to the course, making derogatory remarks about a classmate or your instructor will not be accepted and may result in your dismissal from the class.

Although most of the exam problems are based on the material covered and have the same degree of difficulty as those assigned for homework or solved in class, some problems may involve concepts not necessarily covered in class.
Your performance will be tested regularly throughout the semester by in-class exams, unannounced quizzes, and several homework assignments. There will be three exams. Homework assignments sets will be collected for grading, you are encouraged to submit each and every assignment. Homework will only be accepted at the beginning of class, since I do not want you to work on the homework during class
