Requirements: The
course will consist of a combination of teacher demonstrations with student
participation in discussions, individual, and group work. 1.
There will be seven Homework Quizzes
during the quarter based upon the suggested problems. No makeups will be
given, unless arranged in advance. Students should work problems in
addition to those suggested. [The lowest quiz score will be dropped to
compute the course grade.] 2.
There will be three inclass Tests.
Note the dates; no makeups will be given, unless arranged in
advance. [If higher, onehalf of the score on the final exam replaces the
lowest test to compute the course grade.] 3.
There will be a twohour Final Examination
on Tuesday, June 24, from 6:15 to 8:15 pm. Any student missing the final exam will
fail the course; no excuses are acceptable. Grading: Quizzes (6 X possible 25 points each) 150 Tests (3 X possible 50 points each) 150 Final
Exam (1 X possible 100 points) 100 400 points Course grades will reflect the
following percentage range of total scores: A
= C
= F
= below 50% (below
200) B
= D
= Grades of B^{+}, B^{},
and C^{+} will be used as the final distribution of grades warrants; A^{} will not be used. Attendance:
Regular attendance is expected. A student who misses any class
during the first two weeks of the quarter may be dropped from the
course. Inform the instructor, in advance, of any necessary absences; telephone
the instructor and leave a message if an emergency arises. Note, however,
that it is the student's responsibility
to formally "drop" the course. Protect your
academic record by observing these deadlines: 20
April to drop with no record 2
May for P/NP option 30
May to drop with a "W"
