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.
Homework Policy: The homework assignments are online. In order to do the assignments you need to have a student access code. You can get an access code with a new book purchase that is bundled with My MathLab or by buying the code separately at the campus bookstore. If you buy a new book from another source make sure it is bundled with My MathLab. On the first day of class your course instructor will give you an additional code needed to access the homework assignments. In addition, there will be a small number of handin homework assignments to be graded.
Quiz Policy: At least two quizzes based on the homework problems will be given each week in class. All of the quizzes will be graded. The homework and quizzes are intended to develop your problemsolving skills and to prepare you for the exams. The quiz and homework grades will be a significant component of your course grade.
How to Get Started with MyMathLab:
MATLAB: MATLAB is a mathematical software program that is used throughout the science and engineering curricula. Several MATLAB assignments will be given out. These assignments have been designed to help you learn how to use this software in order to visualize many of the concepts taught in class. Each MATLAB assignment will be graded and will be counted as a weekly quiz grade.
