Homework Policy

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. Late papers will not be graded. Missing papers count zero. Moreover, neatness counts; if the grader can't read your paper, you get no credit.

Homework will be graded on an 0 - 2 point scale: 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 exam grades.


The course grade will be based upon the scores on the two midterm exams and the final exam. Homework scores affect your grade only in borderline cases.

Midterm Exams 200 points (100 points each)
Final Exam 150 points
Total 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 assistance.


Tutorial assistance for this course, that is, help with your homework, will be available in 102 Bradley, Sundays, Tuesdays, and Thursdays evenings. Assistance for Section 1 is from 7:00 to 9:00 and assistance for Section 2 is from 8:00 to 10:00. If you want this help, you are strongly encouraged to go at the stated time for your section, though if you have a conflict, you could go at the other time. Tutorials will begin on Thursday, September 21.

Also note that the Tutor Clearinghouse will have private one-on-one tutors available for Math 8. The tutors are recruited on the basis that they have done well in the subject, and are trained by the Academic Skills Center. The rate of pay is $7.00 per hour. If a student receives financial aid, the College will pay for three hours of tutoring per week. If you would like to have a tutor, please go to 301 Collis and fill out an application as early in the term as possible.


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 services.
