Grading System
There will be four tests, including the final exam. There will also be frequent quizzes and homework collection. Your grade will be based on the tests, quizzes, homework, and class participation.

I expect everyone to read the entire assigned sections carefully before the lecture and to do all the assigned problems. If not, you may miss some important things.
Hand-in homework should be neatly written (or typed), not squeezed into a small space. (I must be able to read your solution.) Staple multiple sheets (paper clips and paper folds don't work). Also, please remove all stubs if you tear out pages from a spiral binder.
Hand-in homework is due at the beginning of class. If you're late, leave your papers on the desk when you arrive. Late homework will have a penalty or be refused. [Added Sept. 7.]
Homework grading system: 4 points per graded problem or part of a problem.

There will be frequent quizzes. There are no make-up quizzes. Previous quizzes are available here without solutions. For solutions go here.

Calculus III Help Room
There is a help room for Calc III and other courses. Here is the help room schedule. The hours for Calc III are very limited due to limited resources.

Test dates (almost all on Tuesday)

Final exam policy
The final is comprehensive and mandatory. There will be no make-up for the final exam except for extraordinary circumstances. Implicit in your registration for this course is your agreement to be present to take the final exam at the above time and place.

          Test grading guidelines are posted after the test is graded.

Classroom behavior
Always turn your cell phone to silent before entering the classroom. No chatting, emailing, surfing, texting, etc. If you do, I may confiscate your device for the rest of the class.

Academic Dishonesty
Any instance of academic dishonesty will be referred to the Harpur College Academic Honesty Committee. Academic honesty violations can result in suspension from the University for multiple semesters.
