Policies

Attendance

Lecture attendance (online!) is not mandatory in MTH150 but is highly suggested as you have ability to interact. Those who cannot attend the lectures live, should view them as soon as possible and ask questions to the intstructors to keep up with the material.

You are welcome to attend any lecture (see top of webpage for the listing of times and places of the 2 different instructors’ lectures). Note that all sections of the course cover the material needed for the exams at about the same pace.

If you do attend a lecture in a section different than the one you are signed up for, please do relinquish your seat to students actually enrolled in that section if the classroom fills - in that case, usually there is room to sit in the aisle or stand at the back of class. This packed classroom situation is generally rare so it should not be a big issue, and hopefully won’t occur at all.

Workload expectations

This course follows the College credit hour policy for four-credit courses. This course meets 3 academic hours per week. Students may also be expected to deepen their understanding of the course material through close examination/evaluation of the readings assigned in the course.

Help

If you are having difficulty seek help immediately - do not wait until it is too late to recover from falling behind. There are several avenues for you to get help and ask questions, outside of lecture:

Disability Support

If you have an academic need related to a disability, arrangements can be made to accommodate most needs. In the event you encounter any barrier(s) to full participation in this course due to the impact of a disability, please contact the Office of Disability Resources. The access coordinators in the Office of Disability Resources can meet with you to discuss the barriers you are experiencing and explain the eligibility process for establishing academic accommodations. You can reach the Office of Disability Resources at: disability@rochester.edu; (585)275-9049; 1-154 Dewey Hall. To be granted alternate testing accommodations, such as extra time, you (the student) must fill out forms with the office of disability resources at least seven days before each and every exam. These forms are not sent automatically. Instructors are not responsible for requesting alternative testing accommodations for you, and they are not obligated to make any accommodations on their own.

Academic Integrity Statement

All assignments and activities associated with this course must be performed in accordance with the University of Rochester’s Academic Honesty Policy. More information is available at: www.rochester.edu/college/honesty.

Math Dept policy on unauthorized online resources: Any usage whatsoever of online solution sets or paid online resources (chegg.com or similar) is considered an academic honesty violation and will be reported to the Board on Academic Honesty. In particular, any assignment found to contain content which originated from such sources is subject to a minimum penalty of zero on the assignment and a full letter grade reduction at the end of the semester (e.g. a B would be reduced to a C). This applies even if the unauthorized content was obtained through indirect means (through a friend for instance) and/or the student is seemingly unaware that the content originated from such sources. If you have any questions about whether resources are acceptable, please check with your instructor.
