Attendance Policy: Attendance at all classes will be recorded and is mandatory. Please make sure you read and fully understand the Math Department’s Attendance Policy. This policy will be strictly enforced. You must come to class no later than 10 minutes after the beginning of the class or else you will be counted as absent.
Homework and Quiz Policy: There will be a short quiz each week, daily homework, a midterm and a final. I will also place on Moodle an optional math puzzle each week which you may do for extra credit although this will be optional.
Exams: There will be two midterm exams held in class during the semester and one comprehensive final exam. Exams are held on the following days:
Midterm Exam 
Week 8 
Final Exam Period 
December 15  21, 2017 
The final exam will test your knowledge of all the course material taught in the entire course. Make sure you read and fully understand the Math Department's Examination Policy. This policy will be strictly enforced.
Makeup Exam Policy: There will be No makeup QUIZZES OR EXAMS during the semester. In the event an exam is not taken under rare circumstances where the student has a legitimate reason for missing the exam, the student should contact the Dean of Students office and present written verifiable proof of the reason for missing the exam, e.g., a doctor’s note, police report, court notice, etc. clearly stating the date AND time of the mitigating problem. The student must also notify the Math Department Office/Instructor that the exam will be missed.
Cellular Phones: All cellular phones and other electronic devices must be switched off during all class times.
