Objectives: Upon successful completion of MTH 132 course, students will be able to:
Attendance Policy: Students are expected to attend all scheduled classes. Your success in this class is directly related to your own efforts. Attendance shall be used in every class meetings. It is the student’s responsibility to find out what was discussed in a missed class. Each unexcused absence will be noted, as they may indicate your lack of a desire to succeed and relieve me of my obligation to assist you. You are responsible for any assignments or important notices that you may have missed. Attendance at the exams is mandatory! If you have a conflict, let me know as soon you learn about the conflict before the exam. Homework:
Evaluation: There will be,
Testing and Grading: Quizzes and tests will be given during the regular class sessions. No makeup quiz will be given under any circumstances. Also, no makeup test will be given unless an acceptable excuse is given to the instructor, for example, in the case of illness, a note from a physician. All scheduled tests and examination will be conducted in the classroom. The final grade will be based on the following components: Assignment Grade Points Final Grade Letter Grade Attendance 40 points 90 – 100 A Quizzes 120 points 80 – 89 B Midterm Exams 300 points 70 – 79 C Final Exam 140 points 60 – 69 D Total possible points 600 < 60 F Math Tutoring Lab: There is a math tutoring center located in Laidly Hall room #101 for anyone who needs more help in any math courses. I highly recommend you take full advantages of this service as much as possible, not just before exams. Academic Dishonesty: Please refer to the Undergraduate catalogue for details regarding University policy on academic dishonesty. Inclement Weather Policy: Students can find information concerning Marshall’s policy regarding inclement weather on 20102011 undergraduate online catalog: http://www.marshall.edu/catalog/undergraduate/ug_1011.pdf Policy for Students with Disabilities: Marshall University is committed to equal opportunity in education for all students, including those with physical, learning and psychological disabilities. University policy states that it is the responsibility of students with disabilities to contact the Office of Disabled Student Services (DSS) in Prichard Hall 117, phone 304 6962271 to provide documentation of their disability. Following this, the DSS Coordinator will send a letter to each of the student’s instructors outlining the academic accommodation he/she will need to ensure equality in classroom experiences, outside assignment, testing and grading. The instructor and student will meet to discuss how the accommodation(s) requested will be provided. For more information, please visit http://www.marshall.edu/disabled or contact Disabled Student Services Office at Prichard Hall 11, phone 3046962271. Social Justice: All students will be afforded equal opportunity without regard to race, color, sex, religion, age, disability, national origin, or sexual orientation. Cell Phone: Please turn all cell phones and pagers off or to silent mode before entering the class room. The classroom is a learning environment and I do not feel students are able to learn while being unfocused. We will cover the following sections.
