MATH 2654-01-(FA 2002)

(I) HOMEWORK: Specifically assigned homework problems will be discussed in class and simulated on exams. There will be no memorized problems, and homework will not be taken up for a grade. However, occasionally selected homework problems may be taken up to check format and notation only--not for a grade. IT IS VIRTUALLY IMPOSSIBLE TO BE SUCCESSFUL IN THE COURSE WITHOUT DOING HOMEWORK ON A DAILY BASIS. PLEASE TURN OFF ALL CELL PHONES DURING CLASS!!

(A) EXAMS: There will be three or four 100 point exams (USUALLY ON TUESDAYS [MAY OVERLAP MONDAYS OR WEDNESDAYS]).
(B) FINAL EXAM: A comprehensive final exam will be given on Monday (12/09/02) at 11:00 AM-1:00 PM.

(D) "W" DEADLINE: The last day to withdraw with a "W" is OCTOBER 10. NOTE: Your daily average will be 2/3 of your final grade and your final exam score will be 1/3 of your final grade.

(III) ATTENDANCE: Roll will be taken daily.
(A) ABSENCES: 0 - 7 Acceptable; 8 EXCESSIVE ( "WF" )
(B) TARDIES: 2 Tardies = 1 Absence
