The following policies apply to all exams, and no exceptions will be made.
You must have a URI Photo ID with you to take an exam.
No books, bags, papers, extra scrap paper, or anything else may be taken with you to your seat. If you bring any of these items with you, you must leave them at the front of the room.
No calculators of any kind are permitted on exams.
No cellphones, MP3 players, or any electronic devices of any kind may be used or even accessible to you at any time during the exam. Failing to abide by this policy will be considered an attempt at cheating.
You may not ask any questions during the exam; understanding the questions is a part of the exam. If you think there is a typo or error, do the best that you can with the given information.
You may not leave the room during the exam. Remember to use the bathroom before the exam. If you leave the room for any reason, your exam will be collected.
Once finished, you must hand your exam to a proctor (your instructor, if in the room) and show your URI photo ID.
You are advised to bring multiple pencils to the exams, just in case. Do NOT use a pen.
Final Exam. The final exam will be multiple choice, and as such there will be no partial credit of any kind on the final exam.

Introductory Course Description
This second course in calculus assumes that you know and can use the basic ideas covered in MTH 141. As in MTH 141, we will approach new ideas and problems from algebraic, graphical, and numerical points of view. How to succeed in MTH142
Spend about 8 hours per week, outside of class, working on problems, reading the text, and working on other projects. Sometime during the first week of class, set up your weekly schedule so that specific days and times are reserved for working out math problems.
Goals and Objectives
The goals of the course are to have you develop symbol manipulation skills, mathematical modelling skills, skills in the use of technology to treat mathematical problems, an understanding of the language of calculus, and an appreciation for the uses of calculus in the sciences.
At the conclusion of this semester you should be able to:
Graphing calculators will not be used in this course and will not be permitted on exams.
Attendance, Quizzes, Homework
Policy on attendance, quizzes and homework will be announced in class. Also, check the FAQ (frequently asked questions) section of the course's web site, where you will find information about Incomplete Grade, Second Grade Option, etc.
