It is important to do the homework problems even though I will not collect the homework.

If you don't do the homework for practice, it is highly unlikely that you will pass

the daily quizzes and exams. Practice makes perfect...or at least it makes you head in the

direction of perfect. :) Observing someone else do the problems is VERY different from

working the problems yourself!!

quiz every Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday with the exception of the first day of

class and Memorial Day (since we don't have class). The daily quiz will cover the material

presented the previous day in class. Quiz questions will be taken from text examples, class

examples, or assigned problems.

of class. I will announce in class every Thursday exactly which sections will be covered on

the midterm.

last Friday of class. It will take about two hours and will cover all the material covered

in the class with an emphasis on the last week's assignments.

have any preference regarding which calculator would be most useful, so you're welcome

to choose for yourself. I will allow calculators on some quizzes and exams and not on

others, depending on the material and whether or not I think a calculator is necessary.

This will be discussed more in class with each quiz and test.

policies regarding my classroom administration and grading.

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

Please don’t try to use your negotiating, persuasive skills on me regarding

this issue. You will be faced with my polite, but unwavering “no.” - There will be no make-up exams.
- 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 in whichever way I see fit. - 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! - If you have crisis-level extenuating circumstances which require flexibility with

these policies, 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 do to help.

I reserve the right to make exceptions to my policies based on individual needs and

timeliness of your communication.
