Grading | |||||||||||||||||||||
Your course grade will be the largest of the following two computations:
Option A will be selected if your performance on the final exam is worse than the average of your performance on the two midterm exams. In that case, your mishap on the final will be curbed by the fact that it counts for less relative to the two midterms. Option B will be selected if your performance on the final exam is better than the average of your performance on the two midterm exams. In that case your improvement for the final will be amplified by the fact that it counts for more relative to the two midterms. |

Attendance | |||||||||||||||||||||
We expect that you will attend class every day. Though it is not officially a part of the course grade,
missing class could adversely affect your grade by impacting your performance on quizzes and homework.
If you know that you are going to miss class, you should let your instructor know beforehand (email is okay).

Honor Principle | |||||||||||||||||||||
Exams and Quizzes: All exams and quizzes are closed book, with no notes, computers, or calculators allowed.
No outside help will be given or received, aside from clarifying instructions and addressing typos.
Homework: You are welcome to discuss your homework with your classmates, the instructors, and your tutors, but the final result should be your own work, as you understand it, written on your own. Collaboration is encouraged, but you must write your own solutions. Simply using Google or Wolfram Alpha to find solutions is unacceptable. That is not to say that these resources are entirely off limits, but rather that they should only be used to confirm the validity of your own solutions. Calculators and other computing devices are also allowed for homework, but remember that they will be unavailable on the exams and quizzes. | |||||||||||||||||||||
Disabilities, Religious Observances, Etc. | |||||||||||||||||||||
Students with disabilities enrolled in this course and who may need disability-related classroom accommodations are encouraged to
make an appointment to see your instructor before the end of the second week of the term. All discussions will remain confidential,
although the Student Accessibility Services office may be consulted to discuss appropriate implementation of any accommodation requested.
Some students may wish to take part in religious observances that occur during this academic term. If you have a religious observance that conflicts with your participation in the course, please meet with your instructor before the end of the second week of the term to discuss appropriate accommodations. |
