Study Guide for Group Finals:
Fall 2005 
While calculators and computers are an important part of any mathematics environment, students in the Introductory Calculus Course must be able to perform the basic operations of limits, derivatives and integrals without such assistance. Once these basic operations are understood and can be used on routine problems, then the modern computing environment can assist in the solution of Calculus based problems. Thus, calculators and other electronic devices will not be allowed on any Math 150 exam.
Rescheduling:
WebWorks Homework system does not accept late homework.
No makeup tests.
Personal Conflicts:
No special arrangements will be made for personal conflicts such as:
Family related issues (weddings, visiting relatives, etc.).
Work related conflicts: schedule, traveling, traffic, etc.
Vacations planned during regular class meetings.
Personal problems with roommates.
Etc...
Special arrangements can be made, however, only in the most compelling and
verifiable circumstances such as disabilities.
Disabilities:
Students needing special accommodations for testing must work with
Disabled Student Services to arrange for the most appropriate accommodation.
Attendance:
Attendance will not be recorded. It is your responsibility, however,
to be up to date in the progress of the course, dates for: homework,
exams, and any possible changes made to this syllabus.
Please visit regularly this webpage since class information will be posted
throughout the semester. Lateness or leaving class early is unacceptable.
Academic Integrity:
All work that you complete in this class should be your own.
Any form of cheating will result in an "F" and a referral to the University
Judicial Officer for further action.
General:
Disrespectful behavior such as eating or reading material not related
to the course will not be tolerated.
Any behavior considered a distraction to those around you, including the
instructor, will not be tolerated.
Cell phones should be powered off before entering the classroom.
Participation:
Participation in class is encouraged. If you have a question, ask it!
If you do not understand something, say so! Any question that will help you to
better understand the material is not stupid. Because of this, I expect you to
be patient and respectful of others who ask questions in an effort to do well.
Addenda:
The instructor reserves the right to make modifications to the
syllabus. Any addendum will be announced in class (you are responsible for
attending class during such announcements).
