**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.
