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).

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 in-class hourly exam, and 8 weekly quizzes this semester. There will be a short 15-20 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 in-class exam score will not be counted in the final grade. The departmental final exam will cover all material throughout the semester.

 

No make-up 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 M-F 9am-4pm, 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, 294-6624 or TDD 294-6335, disabilityresources@iastate.edu or accommodations@iastate.edu). Please contact the instructor early in the semester so that your learning needs may be appropriately met.
