Course goals:


Course Topics: 

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/worksheets/labs/projects (25%), and the final exam (25%).


Intellectual Responsibility

If you are unsure what agrees or does not agree with the precepts of intellectual responsibility in this course, feel free to talk to me about it.
