The content of this page, the
Grading Policy page, and the
letter written by the prof in the beginning of the semester constitute class policy.
While the prof is speaking, you are to remain silent: Don't even whisper. When the prof is not speaking you should
quietly discuss math with those around you once they have completed their work.
No cell phones, laptops, ..., are to be VISIBLE or IN USE
on tests, during class, in the classroom, on desks, on laps, in hands, out of bags unless you are asked to use them by the prof.
If yours is visible or used, you will be asked to LEAVE THE CLASS FOR THE REMAINDER OF THE DAY.
Back packs, purses, extra books should be placed on the floor. Only your textbook, notebook, and calculator should be on the desk.
If your phone rings, LET IT RING. DO NOT TOUCH IT. DO NOT ANSWER IT.
For EACH hour of class, spend TWO hours doing homework. This includes reading the day's textbook sections and completing the odd exercises.
Homework is due on the prof's desk just before the start of class. Students must be in the classroom before class begins and remain the entire class period.
Use restrooms before or after class not during class time.
So, if it is absolutely urgent that you leave the class, pick up your stuff and walk out the door as quietly as possible, but, do not return.
Only students enrolled in this section and listed on the "Tenth Day Roster" are
permitted to attend class and to complete graded assignments. Re-admission to this section requires listing on the
official class roster. Permission to replace a missed assignments is not guaranteed, but may be
permitted. Judgement on missed assignments is made by the prof on an individual basis. I DO NOT GIVE MAKE
UP TESTS. IF YOU MISS A TEST/ASSIGNMENT, YOU EARN NO POINTS.
Assignments are due at the beginning of class unless otherwise stated. If an assignment is due, you
must be present to hand it in. A classmate may not hand in an assignment for you. You may learn of an assignment by
reading the posted class notes, but, you should check with another student in class in case the assignment is only stated
verbally and not written in class notes.
If you miss class or the class is cancelled, review the material on your own.
The daily homework assignment is to read and review the assisgned section in the book stated on the course outline,
to complete the odd numbered problems, and to prepare as needed so that when you enter the next class you are prepared to ace a quiz on the material from the
last class and the homework. If you have a problem on a specific homework problem, write the page number, the problem number
on the upper left corner of the blackboard as soon as you enter the room.
