Calendar 





Attendance: 
Monday,
Wednesday and Friday 2:10pm3pm OLMH 1208. The Department expects
students to attend, and to participate in, all lectures and discussion
sections of the Math 9ABC class in which they are enrolled. Classes cannot be
missed except for certified reasons (such as a medical emergency with a
doctor certificate). 

Homework and
Quizzes 
Every
class, I will assign a group of problems for you to work on to master the
material presented in class. Each homework will have a few problems that will
be due the next lecture class All collected homework will be returned in your
discussion section the week following the one it was collected The homework sheets have to be stapled with the
problems written in the order they were assigned, Your name and discussion section time should be
written in the top right corner of the stapled homework ( do not fold it!) Place your homework in the pile corresponding to
your discussion section at the beginning of each lecture Please follow this requirement at all times as
otherwise the homework will not be collected or graded There will be 10 to 15 minute long quizzes. The quizzes will be given every week in
the discussion sections. The problems
will be from or very close to the homework.
You are expected to reasonably explain (in writing) the steps of the
solutions. Unsubstantiated
answers will not be given credit. All quizzes and homework points are bonus
points. Your
TA’s will decide the part and the amount of problems from your homework or
quizzes that will be graded each week. You should always write your own solutions
of the homework problems. It is your responsibility to follow this advice.
This will be very helpful when you review later in the quarter. Many times
people tend to believe they can do certain problems until they have to write
down the actual solutions. 


There will
be one Midterm exam and a Final Exam. The
homework will inform you about the tests, but you should not expect that most
test questions will come without modification from the homework or any mock
test 

Getting Help 
I strongly recommend that you
come and see me whenever you have difficulties. Please do not postpone your questions for a later time. 

Grading 


Make ups 
No
makeup quizzes or exams are allowed, except for a certified reason (such as
a Doctor certificate).
