Syllabus & Homework We will cover topics from Chapters 1,
2, 3, 4 & 5. The course schedule and homework problems assigned from
the book are listed on the
course outline.
WeBWork Homework problems must be submitted online
via WeBWork, which
is a computer graded homework system. Webwork homework will count
towards 20% of the grade.
Exams There will be 3 exams during the semester and a Final exam at the end of the semester. Here are the tentative dates:
Grading: The course grade will be determined as follows: 20% WeBWork + 40 % Exams + 40% Final Exam. Without exception you must pass the exams to pass this course. Missing the Final exam will result in an F grade. You must take the final exams at the time scheduled by the university. Any changes to the grading policy will be announced in the class.
Method of Study: Attend class. Read the textbook. Do the homework and Webwork problems. Discuss and talk to other students. Use my office hours or email me to ask questions.
Help: Email is the best way to contact me. Use the office hours posted above. Free math tutoring is also available.
Attendance is mandatory. Cell phone usage of any kind during class is not allowed. Academic dishonesty and cheating will not be tolerated. Please see CUNY's Academic Integrity Policy .
