Homework and Quizzes

We will be using the MyMathLab Homework System. Detailed instructions about how to create an account with MyMathLab and submit your homework problems are posted below and will be distributed at the first class meeting. Quizzes will be given at the beginning of the class on Monday every two weeks. Typical quiz exercises will be selected homework problems. There are no make-up quizzes. To address extraordinary circumstances that lead to missing or performing poorly on a quiz, the lowest quiz score will be dropped.


Attendance is mandatory. Missing more than 4 classes will result in a reduction of your final score by 5%. Exceptions could be made only if proper documentation regarding the circumstances is provided.

Final Exam

Time and Place: Wednesday, December 18 from 8:30 pm - 10:45 pm (Please check the blackboard for your sitting assignment)

Previous Departmental Finals:

Sample Final A

Sample Final B

If you miss the final...

A student who is passing a course but miss the final exam, will receive an INC grade. Within one week of the end of finals the student must:

        a) obtain documentation that the absence from the exam was because of illness or other emergency 

        b) pay the required fee to the Bursar;

        c) sign up in the Math Office (NAC 8/133) for a makeup exam.

The sign-up must be completed within one week of the end of finals. The list of those who have signed up for the makeups will be transmitted to the Advisors in the Mathematics Department, the Science Division and the Engineering School within three weekdays after the signup deadline. At that time, any student with an INC who is not on the signup list will not be eligible for registration in a course which has this course as a prerequisite. That is, until the INC is resolved the student will not be allowed to register in such a course and, if registered already, will be dropped. The students who are on the list will be allowed to register, or remain registered, pending satisfactory resolution of the INC, which is some cases is a grade of at least C. The makeup exams will be given in late January, before the first day of the Spring term.
