The first set of practice problems is similar to a practice test, while the second set consists of practice problems on the new material. Some of you have requested that earlier practice problems and their solutions be accessible. For this, go to the end of the announcements.

Homework Policy |
---|

- There will be two separate parts to your homework assignments. The first, called WeBWork, is to be done on a computer and submitted via the web. Webwork assignments will be made each class day, as indicated on Syllabus and Homework Assignments. The assignment will be due at 10:00 am on the subsequent class day. You will only be able to submit the assignment during the time that it is open; at 10 am on the due date, the assignment will close and the correct answers will be available to view.
- The second part of the homework consists of several problems which will be assigned weekly. These problems are to be written up and handed in. For Sections 1 and 3 the assignments are to be handed in to the homework boxes outside the lecture room. They will be graded and returned in these homework boxes. In Section 2 they are to be handed in in class and will be returned in the homework boxes outside 008 Kemeny Hall. After Week 3, all written homework will be due on Wednesday at the start of class. Late homework can be submitted and will be recorded as late, but will not be graded unless excused because of medical reasons or a family emergency.
- There will be appropriate adjustments to the homework schedule for holidays. More details about homework are posted on the course assignment webpage (Syllabus and Homework Assignments).
- There will also be practice problems listed each class day consisting mostly of odd numbered problems from the text for those students who wish to do additional problems. These are optional and are not to be handed in. You can login to http://hotmath.com (using the password supplied in lecture) to see hints and complete solutions of many of these problems.

Grades |
---|

- The course grade will be based upon the total score obtained from the two midterm exams, the final exam and the homework assignments. There will be two grading schemes.

The first is

Midterm Exams | 20% each |

Final Exam | 40% |

Homework |
20% |

Total | 100% |

and the second is

Midterm Exams | 25% each |

Final Exam | 30% |

Homework |
20% |

Total | 100% |

- At the end of the term each student will be assigned two percentage grades, one from each grading scheme. The larger number will then be used to determine the course grade for each student.

The Honor Principle |
---|

- On Exams: No help given or received. No calculators or computers are allowed.

- On Homework: Collaboration is permitted and encouraged -- a discussion of the general idea of the problem(s)
with instructors, tutors, fellow students and others is desirable. However,
*each student is expected to complete his or her assignments individually and independently.*Computing devices are allowed on homework.

Tutorials |
---|

- Tutorial assistance for this course, that is, help with your homework,
will be available in Rooms 105 and 108 Kemeny Hall, Sunday, Tuesday, and Thursday evenings 7 - 9:30 pm. Tutorials will begin on Thursday, September 24.
Our tutors are Kassie Archer, Zebediah Engberg and Katie Kinnaird.

- Also note that the Tutor Clearinghouse has study groups and private one-on-one tutors available for Math 8.
The study group leaders and the tutors are students who have taken the course and have done well in it, and they are trained by the Academic Skills Center.
For a student receiving financial aid, the College will pay for three hours of tutoring per week. If you would like to join a study group or have a tutor,
