and your top two midterm scores will each count for 25% of your final grade.)

They meet in the T. Benny Rushing Center (between JWB and LCB), Rm 155.

The ASUU Tutoring Center (330 SSB) also offers inexpensive private tutoring.

A list of tutors is available at the Math Department office (JWB233).

- 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. - Eight points of each section will be awarded if you DO every

problem AND show your work. (If you do not show all your work,

you will not get any of those 8 points.) The grader will only

grade one problem (at random) per section for correctness. It is

your responsibility to make sure you understand the problems and

their solutions. This homework portion of your grade is basically

motivation for you to do the homework because it is the only way to

survive a math class and actually learn the material. (Please notice

that there is no way to get an A in this course if you choose not to

do any of the homework. On the other hand, turning in all of the

homework can help your grade substantially.)

- The homework is to be turned in according to the following

instructions:

**The homework set MUST be stapled together with the**(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.

seriously because the flexibility listed here is literally all there is.

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

additional policies regarding my classroom administration and grading.

- There will be no retakes of exams…ever. Your score is

what you get.

- 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**I reserve the right*after*the problem will be sufficient reason

for me to allow you to get a zero on that test.

to make alternative exams more difficult than the scheduled exam. - 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. - 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! - 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. - 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.
