MATH 141 NEWS

 

  • Welcome to MTH 141! This page serves as your go-to source for all course-related events. News will be posted up top here, and additional course information can be found using the links in the boxes at the bottom of this page.
  • Final Exam announced! The exam is 7:00-10:00PM (yes, evening!) on Friday, December 13th. The final will be in Edwards Auditorium. If you are unable to make this exam, you will need to coordinate with your instructor. For students who do NOT have two other exams on Friday, the make-up will be held Friday morning from 8-11am in Lippitt 205. For students with two other exams on Friday, you may reschedule your calculus final with your instructor IF your other two classes meet earlier in the week.
  • PCE Appeals? If you currently have a D or better in the course and still need to pass the PCE requirement, you are eligible for appeal. Please have your instructor sign your PCE slip verifying your grade of D or better. PCE appeals will be given in Lippitt 205 on Monday 1-2, Tuesday 2-4, and Wednesday 2-4. For the appeal, we've wiped the bad part of your slate clean - you can take any unpassed topic, even if you maxed out tried before. We've also kept the good part of your record - all previously passed PCE topics will count. You need a total of 8 (including previously passed PCEs). And yes, you can take PCEs each of the 3 days.
  • Need help with PCE material to get ready for mini-tests? SI offers help. Check the AEC website for the latest SI schedule! Also, you can get PCE help online here: PCE Resources.
  • Need to take minitests for the PCE? Minitest drop-in session are held Mondays and Tuesdays 1-2pm in Lippitt 205. You may take up to 2 minitests each week, and you can take them BOTH in the same session! BEAT THE LINES! Arrive anytime during the session, and avoid the 1pm rush! Sessions cannot run over, so you must arrive before 1:45pm to take a minitest.
  • Do you have classes during BOTH minitest sessions? Work with your instructor or the course coordinator to schedule a make-up time that works for you! You may take up to TWO minitests each week, and they can both be taken in the SAME session. Make-ups are ONLY for students who cannot make it on Monday AND cannot make it on Tuesday. ABSOLUTELY no minitests will be given after 12noon on Wednesdays. After that, you must wait until the next week.
  • Feeling BLUE? If you are exhibiting flu-like symptoms, you and your germs should STAY HOME! Be sure to keep your instructor informed, and the MTH 141 team will work with you to get you caught up. (Special accommodations should be REQUESTED not ASSUMED).
