Grading


The grading scheme for the course is as follows:
Webwork: 20%
Written Homework: 15%
Quizzes: 5%
Midterm: 20%
Final Exam: 40%

Incomplete "I" grades are almost never given. The only justification is a documented serious medical problem or genuine personal/family emergency. Falling behind in this course or problems with workload on other courses are not acceptable reasons.


Homework


WeBWorK will be assigned immediately after class each day and will be due the following day at midnight. Math 142 WeBWorK page
There will be a weekly written homework assignment to be given during class on Thursday and due at the beginning of class on Monday.


Exams and Quizzes


There will be two exams in this course, a midterm given during the week of 7/13 and a final given at the end of the final week (exact dates and times TBD).

Every Monday and Wednesday, at the beginning of class, I will give a 5-10 minute quiz. Any questions that appear will be relatively basic examples similar to the homework problems.


Course Policies


1. There will be no make-up exam or quiz unless you have a valid excuse. If you miss an exam or quiz with a valid excuse (e.g. illness or emergency), you must notify me and provide supporting documentation as soon as possible. If you miss an exam or quiz without a valid excuse, you will receive a score of 0 on that exam or quiz.

2. The use of electronic devices (including calculators), books, or formula cards/sheets is prohibited during any of the exams and quizzes.

3. If you have an academic need related to a disability, arrangements can be made to accommodate most needs. For information, please contact the Center for Excellence in Teaching and Learning. To be granted alternate testing accommodations, you (the student) must fill out forms with CETL at least seven days before each and every exam. These forms are not sent "automatically". Instructors are not responsible for requesting alternative testing accommodations at CETL, and they are not obligated to make any accommodations on their own.

4. You are responsible for knowing and abiding by the University of Rochester's academic honesty policy. Any violation of academic integrity will be pursued according to the specified procedures.
