COURSE GRADE: The overall grade in MAC1140 is based
on the following.
20% -- Quizzes
60% -- Average of 5 exam grades
20% -- Final exam
TAKE-HOME QUIZZES: Take-home quizzes must be handed in at the beginning of class on the due date. Please do not use paper torn from a spiral notebook. The directions given on the quiz need to be followed and all work should be stapled together.
EXAMS: The course content for MAC1140 is sorted into 5 units corresponding to 5 exams. Exam dates will be announced about a week before the exam. Exam answers without supporting work will not receive full credit. Please do not ask to borrow my calculator for an exam. If you forget your calculator, you can borrow one from the Academic Support Center. If you cannot be at the exam, with legitimate documentation, you must contact me before the day of the exam to make alternative testing arrangements.
FINAL EXAM: The final exam is cumulative and given during finals week. You must take the final exam at its scheduled time. You will need a green Scantron form for the final.
Take-home quizzes must be done neatly and handed in on time or they will not be graded. There are no make-up exams or quizzes. With appropriate documentation, the final exam score may replace a missed exam.
