Grades will be based on the percentages below. Curve will be applied if needed. The grading scale without a curve is the standard 90-80-70-60, those grades you are guaranteed (i.e., 90 and above guarantees an A), but the curve may improve your grade.
Exam 1: Wednesday, April 27th, 20% of your grade.
Exam 2: Wednesday, May 25th, 20% of your grade. (Only over material since exam 1)
Final Exam: Wednesday, June 8, 11:30am - 2:29pm, 40% (or 60%, see below) of your grade. (Comprehensive)
Homework: Assigned weekly (some weeks may be skipped). Worth 20%, possibly spot checked (spot checked means: some spot(s) of each homework checked, and all will be collected). Lowest 2 homework grades dropped.
How the grade is computed: Your grade will be the maximum of
20% (Exam 1 score) + 20% (Exam 2 score) + 40% (Final exam score) + 20% (Homework score)
20% (Exam 1 score) + 60% (Final exam score) + 20% (Homework score)
20% (Exam 2 score) + 60% (Final exam score) + 20% (Homework score)
Test Policies: No books, calculators or computers allowed on the exams or the final. One page of handwritten notes allowed on the exam. No makeup exams; see above.
Wolfram Alpha. Google for math. It solves integrals and equations, plots functions, etc... Good for checking your work.
