May 8 4:00-7:00 PM: Makeup Final EXAM Wed. May 9, 10 AM :meet at Prof. Croft's Office, Serin 113 Readings: The weekly reading assignments are listed on the syllabus and should be completed before the corresponding lectures. Homework: Only after organizing in your mind what the chapter is about (the Summary at the end of the Chapter should be useful), should you work on the homework problems. You will best learn the material by first doing the homework on your own. It is also useful to study with other students in the course (not only can you get ideas for those things you didn't understand but explaining the material is perhaps the very best way to truly learn it yourself). Finally selected problems will be discussed in recitation. Solutions to homeworks will be posted on the web. Examinations: Two 90 min. hour exams (HE); and a final (FIN)180 min. exam. The exams are closed book, a formulae sheet will be provided and no other notes are allowed!! The exams are multiple choice. The exam dates are noted on the syllabus. A scientific calculator with the following specifications is requited for the exams. 1) The calculator must have no cover or removable backing.. 2) The calculator must have a memory restricted to less than 10 numbers and no formulas. 3.) The calculator should not be a graphing calculator. Having a calculator at the test site that exceeds these specifications is grounds for receiving a 0 on the test with no makeup possible. USE SUCH A CALCULATOR FOR YOUR HOMEWORK FOR PRACTICE. Having a cell phone in sight at any time at the test site is also grounds for receiving a 0 on the test with no makeup possible. (Emergency arrangements should be made with the lecturer and the head proctor at the exam site) One or more no. 2 pencils are required for the exams. Recitation Quizzes: A short quiz, based on recent previous material will be given in recitation (no quiz first week or on weeks of hour exams). A calculator is required. There will be no make-up for quizzes. Grades: The course grade will be determined by your scores on: HE 1 (20%); HE 2 (20%); FIN (40%); recitation quizzes (20%). In determining your quiz recitation grade the two lowest scores will be neglected. Also the recitation quiz contribution to the final grade will be appropriately weighted to compensate for systematic differences in instructors. Math\Science Learning Center (Allison Rd Classroom Bld./Busch Campus/445-3123/3898 This Learning Center typically provides some support services for courses. Help with the technical parts of the homeworks may also be possible. Please contact the center for more information.
