Congratulations! On the whole, the class did very well on the final

Course Information and Policies:
- Attendance: Students are expected to attend every
scheduled class, and to be familiar with the University Class
Attendance policy as it appears in the General Catalog. It is
the student's responsibility to keep informed of any
announcements, syllabus adjustments or policy changes made
during scheduled classes. Students who are excessively
absent may be "administratively dropped" from the course to
make room for other students trying to get in. "Excessively"
means 2 days in a row or any 4 days during the semester.
- Text: "Calculus (2nd Edition)" by Hughes Hallet,
Gleason, et. al. Wiley: 1998.
- Calculators: Every student must have (and know how to
use!) a programmable graphing calculator. Calculators
will be allowed on exams, but no calculator swapping is
- Exams: There will be three tests and a final
exam. The tests are scheduled for Monday, Sept. 11,
Wednesday, Oct. 11, and Friday, Nov. 3.
The University has scheduled the final exam for Friday,
Dec. 8 from 5:00 - 7:00. Each exam is worth 100 points and
the final exam is worth 200 points.
Exams cannot be given at any other time. If, for whatever
reason, a test is missed, the score for that test will be
replaced with the score on the corresponding part of the final
exam. A second missed test, or a missed final exam, will result
in a score of 0.
- Homework: Homework, an essential
component of the course, will be assigned and collected
regularly. Selected problems will be graded and a
final score equivalent to one test, 100 points, will be
For full credit, homework must be turned in at the beginning of
class on the day
it is due. Late homework will be accepted for grading until the
beginning of the next class meeting, but will earn only 50%
credit. Homework turned in later may be graded but will earn no
points. The lowest 2 homework scores will be thrown out before
calculating the final homework score.
- Quizes: There may be occasional,
unannounced quizes on basic material. Points for these quizes
are "bonus" points, counted above and beyond the points for
other course work. Coming to class and taking these quizes
is thus always to the student's advantage.
- Grades: The total number of points possible on
tests and homework is 600. Grades will be based on the percentage of
points earned, and will be no lower than those set forth in the
|540-600||90% to 100%||A|
|480-539||80% to 90%||B|
|420-479||70% to 80%||C|
|360-419||60% to 70%||D|
|0-359||0% to 60%||E|
- W's and I's: Students withdrawing from the course before
October 13 will receive the grade W if they are passing at the
time. Students will be considered to be passing at the time of
withdraw if they have scored at least 50% on the work completed
at that time.
The grade of I will be awarded only if all the following
conditions are met:
- The student has completed all but a small portion of the
- The student has scored at least 50% on the work completed.
- The student has a valid reason for not completing the course
- The student agrees to make up the material in a short period
- The student asks for the incomplete before
the final exam.
