Homework and announced/unannounced quizzes 100 pts.
The lowest exam score may be dropped
Thus, TOTAL POINTS FOR THE CLASS would be 500 pts.
Grades will be assigned as follows:
450 – 500 A, 400 – 449 B, 350 – 399 C, 300 – 349 D, below 300 F
CHEATING POLICY: If caught cheating in any way, the student will receive an F for the final grade.
ATTENDANCE POLICY: To be successful in a math course, attendance would be very important, almost critical. If more than two weeks of classes are missed without a valid excuse ( death in family, hospitalization, nuclear blast, etc.) I reserve the right to withdraw you from class with an F. If you know in advance that you cannot attend class on a certain day, you may possibly get my prior approval. There are no make-up exams or quizzes.
