Homework and Quizzes:

Homework problems will be assigned for each section. I strongly urge you to do all of them carefully. However, they will not be handed-in or graded. Instead, each Friday when there is no exam, there will be a 15 minutes quiz. The quiz questions will be taken directly from the assigned homework problems. The purpose of the quizzes is to determine whether you understand and can do the assigned homework. Two lowest quizzes will be dropped and no make-up or early quizzes will be given for any reason. All the quizzes together will count 15% of the final grade.

 

Grading:

Grading will be based on the following weighting:

15% Quizzes

20% Midterm 1

20% Midterm 2

20% Midterm 3

25% Final exam 

There will be no make-up for any midterm exam under any circumstances. If you miss a midterm exam for any reason, the weight of this exam will be shifted to the final. Make-up final exam will be given only under exceptional circumstance, and written, verifiable excuses must be provided

 

Grading Scale:

The grading scale will be no worse than A: 90-100%, B: 80-89%, C: 70-79%, D: 60-69%. There will be a small lowering of this scale at the end of the semester, but any grade below 50% will be failing. You should try to meet the above scale to be assured of the grade you want.

 

Guide to Success:

Success in Calculus generally requires both adequate preparation and a willingness to work hard, and attend class regularly. Students should expect to spend a lot of time outside of class working on homework problems. Students are encouraged to read the section of the day before class, do the homework problems timely, and ask questions in class. If students have any questions about homework or course material, please do not hesitate to see me during my office hours or to seek help from tutoring service provided by the mathematics department.

 

Policies:

Students are recommended to consult the undergraduate catalog for statements on incomplete grade, academic integrity, classroom etiquette, and advice for Students with Disabilities (OSD).
