Your final score is determined as follows:
25% Homework (including Writing Assignments), 15% each Midterm Exams, 30% Final Exam.
The following scale describes approximately how the course grades will be assigned. The instructor may adjust this scale slightly (for the whole class, not for individual students):
90% or above = A+, A or A-
80-89%=B+, B or B-
70-79%=C+, C or C-
No calculators allowed on exams.
Policy on missed Midterm Exams: If you miss an exam, you will receive a 0 for your grade on the exam. The only exception is if you have a valid excuse for missing, such as a serious illness or emergency - if so, you must inform me before the exam or, if this is physically impossible, then as soon as possible afterwards. In this case, the grade of the final exam will count as the grade for the missed exam.
Final Exam: The final exam will cover the entire course. Math 348 has a "non-combined" final exam. There will be no conflict exam given except for those few individuals who meet the official university criteria given here in the student code; if you fall into this category, you must make arrangements with me by the last day of classes.
Homework: Homework will be assigned online and will be collected each Wednesday in class. The homework with the lowest score will be dropped. We do not accept late homeworks.
Score report: You will be able to check your quiz and exam grades at Score Reports. Please check it regularly to make sure your grades have been correctly reported.
Disabilities: Students with disabilities who require reasonable accommodations to participate in this class are asked to see me as soon as possible. In particular, any accommodations for exams must be arranged a week in advance and will require a letter from DRES.
