Each student must have a graphing calculator (preferably a TI-83, TI-84, TI 86, or TI-89)
If a student has a TI-89, only those features compatible with a TI-84 will be allowed for use on tests
Each student should only use a calculator with which he/she is familiar.
The final grade for the course will be determined by a combination of exams, quizzes, and homework. Homework, when assigned to be turned in will be due at the beginning of the period specified by the instructor. Late assignments will not be accepted. In-class quizzes will be given from time-to-time and will count as part of the homework grade. No make-ups will be allowed for missed quizzes.
The weight of each portion will be as follows:
Instrument Weight | Grade Scale
---------- ------ | -----------
Hour Tests (5) 70% | 90 - 100% A
Homework/Quizzes 10% | 80 - 89% B
Final Exam 20% | 70 - 79% C
| 60 - 69% D
Quizzes and tests will be done on paper provided by the instructor.
Most homework assignments will be given on paper provided by the instructor. The student should work the problems on scratch paper, and transfer the solution neatly and completely onto the paper provided, showing all work.
If a homework assignment is requested for which the instructor assigns problems out of the text, the student should turn in the problems worked neatly and completely on 8 1/2 by 11 paper, with the problems in order, and the answers clearly marked
Note: The instructor is looking for the details of the solution to be sure that the student understands the methods and procedures in solving the problem. Although having a correct answer is important, without showing how the student arrived at the solution the student may receive only partial credit for a answer.
In general, late papers will not be accepted unless the student has made arrangements with the instructor in advance of the period in which the assignment is due
Each student is expected to attend every class period for this course, arriving in class before the period starts and leaving only when dismissed by the instructor. If a student needs to arrive late, leave early, or knows in advance that he/she will miss a class, the student should inform the instructor before the start of the class. No matter what, the student should be courteous to the instructor and the other students in the class, and avoid disrupting the class.
Use of cell phones to call or text others inside or outside of the classroom will not be tolerated. The only legitimate use of cell phones in the classroom would be to take a picture of work on the board. Otherwise, cell phones should be turned off and put away. Use of cell phones during tests will be considered cheating and will result in a zero on the test..
Students are permitted to use computers, I-pads, notebooks, etc., during class to take class notes, but surfing the web, checking e-mail, texting, doing homework for other classes, or communicating with others inside or outside of the classroom is not permitted. The instructor may confiscate a device for the remainder of the period if he observes such inappropriate use by teh student.
Academic dishonesty will not be tolerated and may result in penalties
Each student is expected to do his or her own work on allgraded assignments. ANY EVIDENCE OF CHEATING OR UNAUTHORIZED GROUP EFFORT WILL RESULT IN DISCIPLINARY ACTION which may range from a zero on the assignment to an F in the course. Students may discuss and compare homework problems outside of class.
Note: Any student experiencing difficulty with this course has an obligation to himself and the rest of the class to seek help in mastering the material. The first step is to take advantage of the office hours set up by the instructor. If the listed hours are unsuitable, see the instructor after class for individual appointments at mutually agreeable times. Help should be sought as soon as the problem becomes apparent. Putting it off will only make things worse! Experience shows that students who study in groups with other students from the class do better, in general, than students who try to work alone. The instructor encourages students to form study groups.
