Policies

  • General
    • The course is divided into four units, with an exam marking the conclusion of each.
    • Paper homework will be collected regularly at the end of class. Assignments and their due dates are subject to change and should be checked daily.
    • Quizzes may be given without advance notice, but will usually be announced at least one class day in advance (often they will cover the reading for that day).
    • Class attendance is an important component of success in the course! If a student is unable to attend class due to illness or a medical/family emergency, he/she should contact the instructor immediately to arrange for an excused absence.
    • Participation and attendance is strongly encouraged! This means you should:
      • ask/answer questions
      • make contributions to group work
      • politely draws attention to and/or corrects mistakes
      • go to the board to work on problems as requested by the instructor
      • come to class and stay awake
  • Homework Format
    • A student's name should appear in the top right corner of each page of his/her work.
    • Each student is responsible for ensuring no pages will detach from their homework. Any unidentifiable pages will not be graded.
    • Please write legibly in order to ensure accurate grading!
  • Expectations
    • Late homework/quizzes will not be accepted.
    • Rare exceptions may be made only if the student has contacted the instructor in advance to make other arrangements.
