- Examination criteria: The final grade will be computed using the following weights.
- Attendance: 5 percent
- Online homework: 15 percent
- Quizzes: 15 percent
- Test 1: 20 percent
- Test 2: 20 percent
- Final Exam: 25 percent
- A: 90 percent (or better)
- B: 80 percent (or better)
- C: 70 percent (or better)
- D: 60 percent (or better)
Attendance is required and contributes to the final grade. Three classes may be missed without affecting this grade. Absence in more than half of the classes results in failing the entire course.
The daily homework assignment will consist of a reading assignment and a problem assignment. One or two problems of the daily problem assignment have to be completed online via the Sakai site of the course at http://ecampus.southalabama.edu. The time frame for this completion begins after the lecture in which the problem was assigned, and ends one hour before the next lecture. The homework problems and the textbook examples that appear in the reading assignment form the basis for the test problems.
Every week, there will be a short quiz. No make-up quizzes will be offered. However, the two lowest quiz grades will be dropped.
Eating, drinking, and smoking is not permitted in the classroom. The use of electronic devices such as laptops, i-pods, cellphones, or calculators is not allowed unless explicitly stated by the professor. Cellphones may be brought to class, but must be completely off and stowed away. They must not be used during class at any time.
- Tutoring: Mathematics tutors are available at no charge in the tutoring laboratory in ILB 235.
