There will be two "hour examinations" and a final examination. The hour
exams are scheduled as follows:
Students who have valid, official conflicts with these exam times must
consult with the professor sufficiently in advance of the date of the exam,
or take the exam on the date and time it is scheduled. (Athletic practices
and extracurricular activities are not valid excuses.)
|Hour Exam 1 ||Thursday,
January 27th||5:30-7:30 pm ||101 Bradley|
|Hour Exam 2 ||Thursday,
February 17||5:30-7:30 pm ||101 Bradley|
The Registrar's Office schedules the final exam, which will occur during the
period March 10-14. If you must make travel plans before the schedule for
final exams appears, do not make plans to leave Hanover before March 14.
Exams will not be given early to accommodate travel plans.
|Final Exam |
11||9:00 - 11:00 am||Cook Auditorium|
Written homework will be assigned daily and will be due before the next class
meeting. Homework will be turned in to and picked up from the boxes outside
of the lecture hall (near the second rear door of 101 Bradley next to the
window). Late papers will not be graded. Missing papers count zero.
Moreover, neatness counts; if the grader can't read your paper, you get
Homework will be graded on an 0 - 2 point scale (each problem): 2, mostly
correct; 1, about half correct, 0; mostly incorrect or missing. Homework
scores will be used only in helping to determine borderline grades, although
there is a very strong correlation between those who do not do the
homework regularly and those who receive low course grades.
The course grade will be based upon the scores on the two hour exams and
the final exam. Homework scores affect your grade only in borderline cases.
|Hour Exams ||200 points (100 points each) |
|Final Exam ||150 points |
|Total Points ||350 points |
The Honor Principle:
On Exams: No help given or received.
On Homework: Collaboration is permitted and encouraged, but NO COPYING.
In other words, you should feel free to talk to other students while you are in
the process of thinking about a problem. However, when it comes time to
write up your solutions, you should do this by yourself without outside
Tutorial assistance for this course will be available in room 102 Bradley on
Sundays, Tuesdays, and Thursdays from 7 -- 9 pm. (If this room is too
crowded, we will reschedule for another room.)
Scientific calculators may be used on homework problems and on exams,
except as follows. Palm Pilots (PDA's) and calculators with "QWERTY" (i.e.,
typewriter-style) keyboards may not be used. Also, any programmable or
calculus-specific features (e.g. differentiation and integration) on allowed
calculators may not be used. You are under the honor principle to comply
with these restrictions. The purpose of this course is to teach you calculus,
not how to blindly punch buttons on a machine!
The Academic Skills Center runs study groups and provides tutoring services
for a wide variety of courses. Study groups generally start at the end of the
second week of classes. Students receiving financial aid pay $10 for joining a
study group, while non-FA students pay $30 for the term.
Students with disabilities who will be taking this course and may need
disability-related classroom accommodations are encouraged to make an
appointment to see their instructor as soon as possible. Also, they should
stop by the Academic Skills Center in Collis Center to register for support
