Homework will be assigned about once a week. They will
be posted and collected (on Mondays) using
WebAssign, an online tool for problem dissemination. To
get started, go to http://www.webassign.net and create
an account. To do this, go to the right-hand side of the
page, and look for a link that says "Enter Class Key."
(This is to the left of the words "Log in.") Your class
key for our section is du 8104 9151. With this,
you should be able to create an account with your own
username and password and start learning about the
system. The eight highest homework scores will
contribute to 16% of your final grade.
You will have quizzes during each week of class that we
do not have an upcoming exam. They will be roughly 15-20
minutes long and will be given in class on Fridays.
Makeup quizzes will only be given in the case of a
documented absence. The seven highest quiz scores
will contribute to 14% of your final grade.
midterm is tentatively scheduled during class
time on Tuesday, October 7. The final
exam is scheduled on Monday, November 17 at
10:00am – 11:50am
in our usual classroom. Makeup exams will only be
offered in the event of extreme circumstances. If you think
you have a problem which will force you to miss an exam,
come talk to me as soon as possible.
You may use a simple scientific calculator for all
exams and quizzes. Graphing or programmable
calculators are not allowed as well as calculators that
can perform any kind of calculus or symbolic operations.
Use of a non-approved calculator will be considered a
violation of DU's honor code. If you have any questions
about your calculator please see me.
handouts will be distributed throughout the semester.
Students are also encouraged to ask for individualized
help from the instructor or the TA at any time. Make use
of the Math Center in the Anderson Academic
Commons too. Detailed information about the Math Center
can be found here: http://portfolio.du.edu/mathcenter.
Accommodations: University policy grants students
excused absences from class or other organized
activities for observance of religious holy days, unless
the accommodation would create an undue hardship.
Faculty are asked to be responsive to requests when
students contact them in advance to request such
an excused absence. Students are responsible for
completing assignments given during their absence, but
should be given an opportunity to make up work missed
because of religious observance. Once a student has
registered for a class, the student is expected to
examine the course syllabus for potential conflicts with
holy days and to notify the instructor by the end of the
first week of classes of any conflicts that may require
an absence (including any required additional
preparation/travel time). The student is also expected
to remind the faculty member in advance of the missed
class, and to make arrangements in advance (with the
faculty member) to make up any missed work or in-class
material within a reasonable amount of time.
