Calculators will not be allowed on exams.

Websites with Useful Math Software: In lectures, I often use a computer for graphing and calculating. The software that I use is free and is easily accessible at the following list of links. I use the same software in my office, instead of a calculator. You are encouraged to use this same free software instead of a calculator. (Link)

Student Resources (Tutoring and Supplemental Instruction (SI)): There are many math-related resources for students on the Athens Campus of Ohio University. For information, go to the following link. (Link)

Special Needs: If you have physical, psychiatric, or learning disabilities that require accommodations, please let me know as soon as possible so that your needs may be appropriately met.

Grading: During the semester, you will accumulate points:

Quizzes (best 8 of 10 quizzes, 20 points each):160 points possible
In-Class Exams (best 3 of 4 exams, 180 points each):540 points possible
Cumulative Final Exam:300 points possible
Total:1000 points possible

At the end of the semester, your Total will be converted to your Course Grade:

The Learning Outcomes for this course can be found at the following link: (Learning Outcomes)

Course Structure: One learns math primarily by trying to solve problems. This course is designed to provide structure for you as you learn to solve problems, and to test how well you have learned to solve them. This structure is provided in the following ways.

Attendance Policy: Attendance is required for all lectures and exams.

ID-Swipe System for Attendance: Attendance will be recorded by an automated system in the lecture hall. When you arrive at the lecture hall, you will swipe your O.U. Student ID through a machine by the door. The system will start recording ID swipes 10 minutes before the scheduled start of class, and will stop recording them 5 minutes after the scheduled end of class. If you swipe your ID during that time interval, my records will show that you swiped your ID on that day and will show the time.

Missing Class: If you miss a class for any reason, it is your responsibility to copy someone’s notes or download my notes from the course web page, and study them. I will not use office hours to teach topics discussed in class to students who were absent.

Missing a Quiz or Exam Because of Illness: If you are too sick to take a quiz or exam, then you must

  1. send me an e-mail before the quiz/exam, telling me that you are going to miss it because of illness, then
  2. then go to the Hudson Student Health Center.
  3. Later, you will need to bring me documentation from Hudson showing that you were treated there.
Without those three things, you will not be given a make-up.

Missing Quizzes or Exams Because of University Activity: If you have a University Activity that conflicts with one of our quizzes or exams, you must contact me before the quiz or exam to discuss arrangements for a make-up. I will need to see documentation of your activity. If you miss a quiz or an exam because of a University Activity without notifying me in advance, you will not be given a make-up.
