Exam, Quizzes & Homeworks:
There will be one pre-calculus exam given on the second day of class and four regular exams. The
last one (given on the 25th of July) will be comprehensive. The exam material for each of the first three regular exams will be
announced in class and posted on the webpage of the course. In general each test will cover the material that was taught from the previous test and then. I also reserve the right to include a question from the previous
exam, so make sure that you have learned from your mistakes. Moreover
I plan to give eleven quizzes, each worth 10 points. The lowest
two quizzes will be dropped. The material tested on the quiz will be whatever we covered from the day of the previous
quiz (including the material taught that day).
Calculators will NOT be premitted during quizzes and exams.
I will not be collecting homework. However the syllabus (it can be found above) offers a large number of recommended problems. You are strongly encouraged to do these problems. Feel free to ask questions on the homework either at the start of the lecture or during office hours. Quiz and exam questions will be similar if not identical to homework questions. It is advisable to keep up with class work and attend class regularly, especially because the pace of a summer course is so accelerated.
Graphics Calculators: Graphics calculators will be used in the course and you will need them to do some of the assigned homework problems. The Texas Instruments (TI-8x) are the preferred types (they are availible at the bookstore). However no calculators will be allowed during exams and quizzes.
Make-up policy: There will be no make-up quizzes. Exam makeups will only be given for University Excused Absences. Any student with a valid reason to be excused from a quiz must contact me prior to the quiz, either by email or in person ,and present documentation at the next class session attended. If you need to be excused from a quiz for religious reasons, you should let me know as soon as possible, preferably in the beginning of the semester.
