**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.

- Tests I-III: 20% each.
- Final: 30%.
- Quizzes and classwork: 10%.

**Homework**

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.

Homework grading system: 4 points per graded problem or part of a problem.

- 4 pts: Complete and correct.
- 3 pts: Almost complete and correct.
- 2 pts: A significant part is correct but there is a significant lack.
- 1 pt: A good start.
- 0 pts: Anything that isn't even a good start: a bad start, very confused, etc.

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.

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.
