## Grading Procedure

Counting towards your final grade will be quizzes (approx. one per week), 3 exams, one Final, and Maple computer assignments that count as much as an exam.

- 3 Exams - 300 points (100 points each)
- Final Exam - 200 points
- Quizzes - 100 points
- Maple - 100 points
Homework will be assigned but not collected - but it is strongly recommended that you do complete these assignments - you will find those problems in the quizzes and the exams.

## Attendance and Honor Code

- You are expected and strongly encouraged to attend every class. No make-ups of quizzes and exams are given except in special circumstances. Your worst two quiz scores will be automatically dropped. You must complete all computer assignments in the allocated time period.
- You are expected to complete all quizzes, exams, and the computer assignments solely on your own unless it is specifically indicated that you can work together.
- You are expected to monitor my homepage for this class regularly. You can find it by pointing your web browser to the address

There will be several computer assignments that you have to complete on your own unless otherwise specified. The assignments will use the computer algebra packages Maple. Please make sure that Maple version 12 (version 11 is ok) is installed and working on your laptop computer. If you do not have a laptop, you can use the Math/CS Computer Lab upstairs or rent a laptop at TLTC for 4-hour periods.
