approx. six tests (80-100pts) and two 100pt comprehensive final exams
All tests will be taken with a pencil or a 5 point deduction will occur.
Extra credit: Extra credit is available through homework problems and stops at 20 cumulative points.
Homework Requirements: All homework should be done before the next class period. The announced quizzes will be similar to the assigned problems. The unannounced quizzes will be the homework problems from previous assignments. You may use your homework notebooks but not your book during the homework quizzes.
Tests: No exams may be taken LATE. You are encouraged to take an exam early if you think you will miss it or if you have already missed an exam earlier in the semester. The final exam will count twice. If you do not miss an exam, the final will replace your lowest test score. If you miss an exam, the final will replace your zero. If you score worse on the final exam, then all other tests will count and the final will only count once. All tests will be taken with a pencil or a 5 point deduction will occur.
Cheating: If you are caught cheating before the withdrawal date, you will be withdrawn from the course with a W. If you are caught cheating after the withdrawal date, you will receive an F for the final class grade.
Calculator: You will need a graphing calculator. You must still show all of your work. You may not store any information in a graphing calculator (see cheating above). A random check may occur before/during exams to check calculator memory. Please remove calculator covers before each exam.
IVCC attendance policy: "Students are expected to attend all classes regularly. If absence is unavoidable, it is the student's responsibility to explain the absence to the instructor and arrange to complete any work missed."
Withdrawal policy: Students have the ability to initiate a withdrawal from classes. By completing the form in the Records Office or at www.ivcc.edu/, the student is authorizing IVCC to remove him/her from the course. Entering the student ID number serves as the studentís electronic signature. IVCC has the right to revoke a withdrawal in cases of academic dishonesty or at the instructorís discretion. Students should be aware of the impact of a withdrawal on full-time status for insurance purposes and for financial aid. It is highly recommended that students meet with their instructor or with a counselor before withdrawing from a class to discuss if a withdrawal is the best course of action for that particular student.
School Closings and Class Cancellations: In the event of inclement weather, please tune to a local radio station for possible school closings. If an exam is scheduled for a day that the school is closed or class is cancelled, it will be conducted during the next scheduled class period. Check IVCC's Class Cancellations (http://www.ivcc.edu/cancellations/) and class announcements at CourseCompass/MyMathLab (http://www.coursecompass.com)
