The Math Tutoring Centers are staffed with students helping students taking "100 level" courses like this one. The tutoring centers are located in LeConte 105 and in the satellite (ACE) center of Bates House (next to the room with pool tables) and the ACE centers in Sims Hall and Columbia Hall. The one in LeConte 105 will be open 10AM-4PM Monday-Thursday beginning January 19th. The ACE centers are scheduled to open beginning the week of January 25th. The ACE centers will be open Monday-Thursday from 6-8PM.

There will be 2 hour tests in the course. Each hour test is worth 100 points. Grades for quizzes and homework will be weighted at the end of the semester on a scale of 0 to 100. The final exam is three hours long and is worth 200 points.

If you know you will be absent ahead of time on a day homework is due, put the homework in my mailbox before the time it is due. There will be a penalty for late homework, especially if it is too late for the grader to grade it along with the other papers. Once graded homework has been returned to the class, later homework will not be accepted.

The university regulations say that absences, whether excused or unexcused, in excess of 10% are considered excessive and faculty may choose to assess a penalty for them. Poor attendance in this course could pull your grade down as far as one notch: from an A to a B+, from a B+ to a B, etc. This is not as severe as some courses, like English 101 where 25% absences sometimes incur an automatic grade of F.

Students who leave class early or come late without excuse run the risk of being counted as absent. If you must leave early, let this be known ahead of time.

Homework that was handed in on Tuesday, Feb. 23:

p. 50: 6, 8(a)(c)

p. 104: 14

p. 111: 24

p. 123: 10

Hand-in homework is the individual's responsibility: while you may get outside help to get over inability to understand what the problem is asking for, getting others to do it for you, or doing it for others, is not allowed.
