Attendance 
Monday,
Wednesday and Friday 01:10 p.m.  02:00 p.m. SPR
2361. 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
Grader will decide the part and the amount of problems from your homework 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. 

Exams

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).
