Assignments 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. We will have 3 quizzes on the scheduled dates 6/1, 6/29, and 7/27 in class. Each quiz takes up to 20 minutes and is based on homework problems and examples presented in class.

Grading will be based on the following weighting:

20% Quizzes

25% Midterm 1

25% Midterm 2

30% Final exam

There will be no make-up midterms. If a student has an acceptable excuse for missing a midterm exam, the weight of this midterm will be shifted to the final. Make-up final exam will be given only under exceptional circumstance, and written, verifiable excuses must be provided

0-49%: F, 50-55%: D-, 56-59%: D, 60-62%: D+, 63-65%: C-, 66-72%: C, 73-76%: C+, 77-79%: B-, 80-85%: B, 86-87%: B+, 88-89%: A-, 90-100%: A.

Honor Code:

Students at Florida Atlantic University are expected to maintain the highest ethical standards. Academic dishonesty, including cheating and plagiarism, is considered a serious breach of these ethical standards, because it interferes with the University mission to provide a high quality education in which no student enjoys an unfair advantage over any other. Academic dishonesty is also destructive of the University community, which is grounded in a system of mutual trust and places high values on personal integrity and individual responsibility. Harsh penalties are associated with academic dishonesty. For more information, see http://www.fau.edu/regulations/chapter4/4.001_Honor_Code.pdf.
