If you have any question about the materials in
class, please feel free to ask. The class time is for learning and questions
are usually a better way to learn than just taking notes.
Class
Attendance: You are expected to
be at every class. If you are not in class, you are responsible for attaining
any notes that were given in class from another student. Frequently missing
class will make it hard to be successful in any academic learning. I will hand
out an attendance
sheet every
class and give some extra credits at the end of the semester for good
attendance (number of missing class <=5).
Grading Policy:

Grading Scale:
A: 90100% B: 8089% C: 7079% D: 6069% F: 059%
Homework: Homework will be
assigned and done weekly on MyLabsPlus, an online
assessment tool to practice the material in textbook. You will need to register
on MLP as soon as possible.
No late homework
will be accepted.
Every homework is due Tuesday at 1am. When you are entering answers, you need to make sure your
answers are in the form requested. You have 3 tries for each answer. After you
enter your answer and click CHECK, if the answer is right, move on to the next
problem. If not, try to correct your mistake, it might be a syntax or
mathematics error. 11 homework will be assigned in the
semester, and the lowest score will be dropped in the final grade.
Extra
Credit: The Mathematics Department
sponsors a Problem of the Week. This problem may be completed for extra credit.
Solutions to these problems should come with complete work, not just answers. Each complete and correct
Problem of the Week will be worth 0.2% extra credit in the final grade.

Quizzes And Exams: There will be a
Departmental Final, four inclass hourly exam, and 8 weekly quizzes this
semester. There will be a short 1520 minute quiz given at the end of every Friday
class. These quizzes will cover the material over the week. A lowest quiz score
and a lowest inclass exam score will not be counted in the final grade. The departmental final
exam will cover all material throughout the semester.
No
makeup quizzes and exams will be given expect under extreme circumstances such as
serious illness or family emergency—you should contact me as soon as such
an emergency arises and depending on the circumstances, documentation may be
requested.
In addition no student is to be excused or
exempted from taking the Final Exam, the Final Exam must be taken.
Calculators: A (graphing)
calculator is allowed on all
tests unless otherwise specified but
cannot also be a communication device (i.e., your iPhone is not a calculator).
You are always required to show your work in order to get full credit
for a problem.
Academic
Dishonesty: Cheating will not be
tolerated. If you are caught cheating on a quiz or exam this will at the very
least result in a zero for that assessment. Further action will be taken in
severe circumstances.
Extra Help: If you need extra help in any aspect of this
course, you can stop by my office to ask questions in my office hours or by
appointment. Math help room (Carver 385) is open MF 9am4pm, begins 3 Sep.
Furthermore, you can also get help from supplemental Instruction (SI): http://apps.dso.iastate.edu/si/ .
Students With
Disability: If you have a
documented disability and require accommodations, you should obtain a Student
Academic Accommodation Request (SAAR) form from the Disability Resource office
(Student Services Building room 1076, 2946624 or TDD 2946335,

instructor early in the semester so that your learning needs may be
appropriately met.
