Old Final and Midterm Exams

In the past, different textbooks were also used; therefore, topics covered in these old midterms were slightly different from what we have covered.

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

  • Written Homework 20%
  • Webwork 10%
  • Midterm Exam 30%
  • Final Exam 40%

The Final Exam will have two parts: Part A will cover the material tested on the Midterm, while Part B will only contain questions related to material appearing after the Midterm. Each part counts for 20% of your course grade. In addition, the Part A score will replace your midterm score if it is higher. Makeup exams are typically not offered. If you miss the midterm exam for some reason, then Part A of the final exam will count as your makeup.

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.
