On the date due, homework must be turned in at the start of class, or within 10 minutes thereof for students arriving late. No other late homework will be accepted, except under extreme circumstances.
Students may work together on homework problems, but of course an act of copying another student's solution without making a substantial contribution to the solution process is plagiarism. Each student must complete the writing of his or her own homework, no photocopied work of another person will be allowed. Along with the individual student's name, on the top front page of homework turned in, must also appear the names of other students who assisted with the solutions.
Relative to assignments in general, students should attempt to read assigned material before coming to class. After coming to class, they should attempt the assigned homework. Students should expect quizzes to be given at times in class. (They will NOT be pre-announced.)
Late homeworks: No late homework will be accepted (even with a doctor's note, and even in the same day). There will be no exception (even for those who enrolled this class late). Instead, the two lowest scores will be thrown out in the computation of the final average in this category.
Exams: The exam schedules are:Exam 1: Thu Feb 16 in class Exam 2: Tue Mar 27 in class Exam 3: Tue Apr 24 in class Final Exam: Mon May 8 8:00 AM - 10:00 AM (in class)Evaluation: I am expecting that every week there will either be some assignments and/or quizzes submitted for grading or an examination will be given. There will be three in-class hour examinations and a two-hour comprehensive final examination. The point basis for the final course grade will be as indicated below. The actual grade will be based on percent earned of the total, where90- % A 80-89% B 70-79% C 60-69% D -59% FStudents must realize that their grade will largely be based on demonstrated competence on examinations. Doing will on homework alone will not assure passing in the class.Quizzes and Homework 100 points Exam I, II, III 300 points (three hourly exams) Final Exam 200 points Total Points 600 points
Students must bring picture ID's of themselves to all exams.
Attendance: Attendance is required in this course. From the 3rd absence, 5 points will be subtracted from the total of 600 points. Any possible doctor's notes are included in the 2 excused ones.
Quizzes: There may be some quizzes in the class (not pre-announced). There will be no makeup quizzes.
Make-ups: Make-ups on examinations will be permitted only for very important reasons. When possible, permission for a make-up should be obtained in advance. In all cases, written verification of the circumstances requiring the make-up must be submitted to the instructor. The final decision on whether or not to give a make-up is the sole responsibility of the instructor. Make-ups on quizzes will not be given.
Grading Policy: All questions regarding the instructor's grading of exams, quizzes, lab projects and/or homework must be presented to the instructor within 1 week from the date the papers are brought to class to be returned. Students should check all adding of credits on their work to see that proper credit has been assigned.
Disabilities: Any student in this course who has a disability that may prevent him or her from fully demonstrating his or her abilities should contact me personally as soon as possible so we can discuss accommodations necessary to ensure full participation and facilitate your education opportunity.
Cheating. All cases of academic misconduct will be reported to the Dean for prosecution. Cheating is a serious offense which can have disastrous consequences for your academic career. Don't do it.
Incompletes and Withdrawals: The grades of "I" (incomplete) and "W" (withdrawal passing) are not substitutes for the failing grade of "F." An "I" may be awarded only when the student, due to circumstances beyond his/her control, will be unable to complete a small, but significant portion of the course. In addition, the student must have a reasonable chance, in the judgment of the instructor, to complete the missing work. An incomplete will not be awarded if the missing work is so substantial that the student must "sit in" on the entire course in a later semester. In this case, if passing, the student should consider withdrawal. After February 26, a grade of "W" will not be awarded to any student in failing standing in the course. Up until then any student, whether passing or failing, may withdraw with an "automatic W." From the beginning of April 5, and on, any passing student wishing to withdraw must, in addition, have permission of their Dean (which is quite impossible).No Record of Grade on Dropped Courses January 17-30 Final Day to Add a Class January 20 Automatic Grade of W for Dropped Course January 31 - March 30 Grade of W or F for Dropped Course(s) February 27 - May 4 Petition to College Dean to Drop Course April 2-May 6The Final Exam Day is Mon May 8, 8:00 AM - 10:00 AM. Please plan now to attend. Never arrange for conflicting travel plans.
Advice to Students: For success in the course, a good attitude and an eagerness for completing assignments promptly are essential. Class attendance is a must. Students who have outside employment should carefully weigh the effects of a lack of study time if grades drop. Perhaps other sacrifices will allow more study time and better success. Students should expect to spend at least two hours on homework for each regular class session. Please take this advice seriously. The start of a new semester provides a great opportunity to you. Be serious about your future. Good Luck!
