Department of Mathematics


During course time, you will be given 8 quizzes (every class except the first one and the last). The comprehensive final exam (20 points) will be given on Monday, December 20, at 11:30am. The course average is calculated as follows:

Course average = 2 x Midterm Exams (60 points) + Final exam (30 points) + HW (10 pts)

The grade system is based on the following dustribution:
A..100%-92%       A..91%-90%      B+..89%-87%      B..86%-82%      B-..81%-80%       C+..79%-77%       C..76%-72%       C-..71%-70%      D+..69%-67%       D..66%-60%       F..59%-0%

Homework will be assigned after each section. Each day we will spend time going over examples, homework problems, and quizzes. You are responsible for all problems assigned, see Course Calendar for a list of problems associated with each chapter. Quizzes will be given almost every class in the weeks without exams. Quiz problems are from homework problems and examples given in class with number changes. There are no makeup quizzes. I'll drop one quiz grade.

Final Exam:
it is comprehensive and will be given on December 20, at 11:30am.
