Instructor Info. Home Page / General Info. ( Instructor Info. )

Getting in touch with the instructors isn't too difficult. Email is undoubtably the best way to contact us, but if you catch us in our office (either by just dropping in, or by giving us a call), then we'll probably be happy to chat with you.

Office Phone Email
J. Mackey 404 Bradley Hall 646-1047
L. Gariepy 1-L Bradley Hall 646-2565

Or, if it's appropriate, you can send a letter to both the instructors at once.

Homework Policy Home Page / General Info. ( Homework Policy )

Homework will be due the class period following the one in which it is assigned. Each assignment will be graded as a 0, 1 or 2, and returned to you at the beginning of the next class period. Although discussion of the homework with your peers is encouraged, copying any part of another person's assignment is a violation of the honor code. We reserve the right to reject late homework.

Midterm Exam Home Page / General Info. ( Exams )

There will be one midterm exam, tentatively scheduled for the evening of Monday, October 26. There is no final exam in this course.

Quizzes Home Page / General Info. ( Exams )

We will have two half-hour in-class quizzes. One will be shortly before the first test, and the other will be toward the end of the term. We will also give 10-minute pop quizzes "randomly" throughout the term.

Grades Home Page / General Info. ( Grades )

Here is a breakdown of the grading for this course:

Homework 20%
Midterm Exam 25%
Journal Entries 20%
Quizzes 10%
Final Project 25%

Journal Entries Home Page / General Info. ( Grades )

You will be required to keep a journal recording your observations of chance. A typical journal will have three entries per week, and we will collect the journals biweekly. Some examples of good topics for journal entries are: thoughts about a classroom discussion, comments on a newspaper article, ideas for studies or experiments, discussions with peers about chance or statistics.

The Honor Principle Home Page / General Info. ( The Honor Principle )

On Exams: No help may 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 assistance.

Tutorials Home Page / General Info. ( Tutorials )

There are no tutorials for Math 5. However, all four professors will be happy to meet with you outside of class, either during regular office hours or by individual appointment. (Check out the Instructor Info. above for ways to get in touch with the professors.)

Chance Fair Home Page / General Info. ( Tutorials )

Toward the end of the term, we will have a Chance Fair to allow people to display their project posters. We will also have games and activities to help relieve some of the stress taking Finals.

Students With Disabilities Home Page / General Info. ( Students With Disabilities )

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 instructors as soon as possible. Also, they should stop by the Academic Skills Center in Collis Center to register for support services.
