**The last time I taught this course
...**

- Four hour exams. The lowest hour exam score will be dropped in calculating the class average.
- A comprehensive, in-class final exam which will have the weight of two hour exams.
- Homework will be assigned frequently, and homework assignments will generally be due at least two regular class periods following the assignment (leaving a day before an assignment is due to discuss any questions or problems). From each homework set I will select several problems to be graded. Questions on any problems (assigned or not) are, of course, welcome. The homework will have the cumulative weight of one hour exam, but the homework score will not be dropped.

- I will make every effort to return homework and exam papers no later than a week from the time they are turned in. That is, papers turned in on a Wednesday should be returned no later than the following Wednesday.
- There are generally very few excused absences from exams. A (documentable)
illness is one (though I may not always require documentation, you should be
prepared to supply it). Lack of preparation, unless caused by a
*recent*(again documentable) illness can not be used for an excused absence. Except for emergencies (accident, medical emergency, etc.) no requests for an excused absence the day of an exam or later can be accepted. Any make-ups should be completed a few days after an exam is taken by the class and in any case should be taken within a week of the class exam. - Exam arrangements can be made with Ivey West at the Center for Writing, Learning, and Teaching (Howarth 105) for students with documented learning disabilities. Formal written arrangements must be made in advance of the day of the exam.

- A graphing calculator will be useful for homework assignments and for review.
- Calculators will not be permitted on exams.
- For students taking further courses in mathematics, please read Which Calculator Should I Use? (pdf) on the Math Department Web Page.
