Exams & Grading

There will be two midterm exams and a final exam.

First Midterm
Feb 22 (Tuesday), 8-9:15 am
Covers: 1.1-2.4
Second Midterm
Mar 31 (Thursday), 8-9:15 am
Covers: 3.1-4.6
Final Exam
May 2 (Monday), 7:15-8:30 pm
Location: Lower Strong Auditorium (Strong 011)

Your grade for the course will be based on your performance on exams and homework:

  • Homework assignments 20%
  • Webwork 10%
  • Midterm Exam 30% (the best one of the two midterms)
  • Final Exam 40%

NO MAKEUP EXAMS WILL BE GIVEN FOR ANY REASON. If you miss a midterm exam for any reason, then that will be the midterm which will be dropped out of the two.

You will NOT be permitted calculators or other electronic devices (iPhone, smart watches, etc) on any exams. You will NOT be permitted books, notes, or “cheat sheets” on any exams.

Incomplete “I” grades are almost never given. The only justification is a documented serious medical problem or a genuine personal/family emergency. Falling behind in this course or problems with workload on other courses are not acceptable reasons.
