The grades will be calculated as follows:
• Weekly Homework 10%
• Midterm 25%
• Midterm 25%
• Midterm 10%
• Final Exam 30%
(There will be 3 midterms. Your lowest midterm score will count for 10% of your grade
and your top two midterm scores will each count for 25% of your final grade.)

## Tutoring

The Math Department Tutoring Center has tutors available if you want to drop in for help.
They meet in the T. Benny Rushing Center (between JWB and LCB), Rm 155.
Check the website for hours.

The ASUU Tutoring Center (330 SSB) also offers inexpensive private tutoring.
A list of tutors is available at the Math Department office (JWB233).

## Policies

Weekly Homework:
• I will collect homework in class on the date that it is due.
• Each section of homework will be worth ten points. For example,
if you have three sections of homework assigned for one week, then
that homework set is worth a total of 30 points.
• You will get the full credit if you DO every problem. I will NOT be
grading for correctness, so it is your responsibility to make sure you
understand the problems and their solutions. This is basically
motivation for you to do the homework because that is the only way
to survive a math class. (Notice that there is no way to get an A
if you choose not to do any of the homework. On the other hand,
• The homework is to be turned in according to the following
instructions:
• The homework set MUST be stapled together with the
corresponding cover sheet as the first page.
(I will
provide the cover sheets in class.) A homework set turned
in without being stapled together or without a cover sheet
will not be counted!! Please do not come to class hoping
that I or someone else will have a stapler. Be prepared
when you arrive.
• I will accept 10 late homework sections, up to two weeks
late, throughout the semester for full credit.
No homework will be accepted after the final exam.

I will not accept homework more than two weeks late. I
accept these late homework sections to allow for illness,
oversleeping, hectic schedules, etc. Do not ask for special
favors with regard to the homework policy, unless the
circumstances are extraordinarily severe, because my
response will not be in your favor.
You are responsible for knowing these policies. Please take it
seriously because the flexibility listed here is literally all there is.

WebCT: I will put your grades online on WebCT.
You can also get there from the University of Utah website www.utah.edu
To log in, you use the same student ID and password that you use for
Campus Information System. I do my best to update the grades on a regular
basis and keep everything accurate. However, I advise you to check your
grades often to make sure there were no data entry mistakes. I'm always
happy to correct any mistakes I've made. You just need to let me know.

Grading Scale: Although I'm not philosophically opposed to curving
grades, I find it's rarely necessary. The grade scale will be the usual:
A (93-100), A- (90-92), B+ (87-89), B (83-86), B- (80-82), C+ (77-79),
C (73-76), C- (70-72), D+ (67-69), D (63-66), D- (60-62), E (0-59).
If I do need to curve the grades, I will simply shift everything down
by a few points (whatever is necessary).

Other Policies: Due to experience, I have decided to make some

1. There will be no retakes of exams…ever. Your score is
what you get.
2. You may take an alternative exam if you talk to me about it first
and explain the extenuating circumstances that make it necessary.
Needing to work, babysitting your siblings, oversleeping, or needing
more time to study do not pass as acceptable reasons.
Getting in a car crash or your mother’s death, on the other
hand, is sufficient reason to request to take an alternative exam. But,
it is 100% your responsibility to communicate with me as soon as is
possible, before the exam occurs (or as soon as possible).
Talking to me after the problem will be sufficient reason
for me to allow you to get a zero on that test.
I reserve the right
to make alternative exams more difficult than the scheduled exam.
3. I will demand respectful behavior in my classroom. Examples of
disrespect include reading a newspaper or magazine in class, social
chatting with your friend in class, text-messaging your buddies during
class or cuddling with your girl/boyfriend in class. If you choose to
be disrespectful during my class, I can guarantee I will take action
to terminate your disruptive behavior.
4. There will be no cursing nor negative ranting (for example,
“math sucks”) on any written work turned in. The penalty
for such things on your written work will be a zero score on that
assignment or test!
5. You need to have a valid email address registered with Campus
Information System. I will regularly send emails to the class and expect
you to be responsible for receiving that information.
6. If you have crisis-level extenuating circumstances which require
flexibility, it is completely your responsibility to communicate with me
as soon as possible. The longer you wait to communicate with me, the
less I can and am willing to do to help.
