Grading: Your final grade for the course will be determined based on a numerical weighted average calculated as follows:

Homework:
Homework will be assigned every week. Tentative homework
assignments (subject to change) are attached below.
Students are advised to complete their homework
assignments as soon as the relevant content is
covered. The
due date is every Friday at the beginning of the
class. Homework
must be turned in promptly to receive credit. For
submitted problems, students are expected to show work
and justify their answers. Please write your name on
the first page. If you are submitting multiple pages,
please staple them together. **The eight
highest homework scores will contribute to 16% of your
final grade**.

Quizzes:
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**.

Exams: A
**midterm** is tentatively scheduled **during class
time** on **Tuesday, October 7**. The **final
exam** is scheduled on **Monday, November 17 **at**
8:00am**** –**** 9:50am**
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.

Calculator:
** 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.

Help: **Additional
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.

Religious
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.

Other:
Check the **DU academic calendar** for important
dates throughout the semester: http://www.du.edu/registrar/calendar/index.html.

Note: Homework assignments on this
page are subject to change. The website is always the most
accurate source for assignments, so if you print out a copy of
this page early, check the web each week to make sure the
problems have not been changed. Your teacher will also call
attention to it whenever any change
is made.

Work the following
homework problems at the appropriate time.
