Course goals:


Course Topics:  Chapters 12-16


Attendance: You are to be in class and to be there on time. Cooperative learning is more effective and more fun than struggling through material on your own. If you do miss a lecture, it is your responsibility to obtain the material that you missed and to get your assignments handed in to me.


Questions: If you have a question during lecture, please raise your hand and ask it right away. Chances are that other students are wondering the same thing. If a question arises later, feel free to visit my office and we'll work through sample problems until you are comfortable with the mathematics.  Always feel free to ask me to slow down as well.


Grading:  Your course grade will be based on three in-class exams (50% total), homework (20%), and the final exam (30%).

Accessibility Accommodations:
I am happy to work with you to ensure your success in this class. Please always feel free to come see me to chat about ways we can better support you in learning the material and demonstrating that you know it on homework and exams. If you have a documented disability that requires accommodations, you will need to register with Accessibility Services for coordination of your academic accommodations. You can reach them via email at, or via phone at 413-542-2337. Once you have your accommodations in place, I will be glad to meet with you privately during my office hours or at another agreed upon time to discuss the best implimentation of your accommodations.
