TESTS:     7 tests are given as shown on the Math Dept's Course Syllabus for 100 points each and a comprehensive final for 200 points. No make-up tests may be taken. A missed test is a zero test score and late assignments result in loss of points. Tests are graded and returned as soon as possible but certainly less than a week.

GRADES AND THE GRADE SCALE:     The final grade is based on the 900 points above plus any extra credit class or notebook points. This sum is divided by 9 for an average which is scaled to the following course grade:

  1. Each student is expected to attend every class and arrive on time including the final exam.
  2. FINAL EXAM: Monday, Dec. 11, 7 - 8:50 p.m.
  3. Over one week of absences during the semester will result in a course grade of F. Five times tardy or five times missing some part of class counts as a week of absences.
