Office Hours

I spend most of my office hours in the classroom, room S137. This allows me to help students with their assignments, homework, projects, exams, and questions.


There is a textbook and an electronic homework package required for this course. The electronic package also includes an electronic version of the textbook and you do not have to buy a printed textbook if you want to go completely electronic.

The two items above can be bundled together for cost savings.

Grading Policy

Letter grades will be assigned to final adjusted scores as follows:

A: 90-100% B: 80 - 89% C: 70-79% D: 60-69% F: below 60%

Normal rounding rules apply.

The official gradebook in WebAssign will may show your grade with a + or -. These are informational in nature and meant to encourage you to do better. The final grades will not have a + or - attached.

The final weighting of grades will be decided upon by the class. Details on each of the methods of evaluation are available in the complete syllabus and there will be a separate handout repeating some of that information.

Late Work

There is a full page summary of how late work is handled in the complete syllabus. The short version is that no late work is accepted for prelecture assignments or reading quizzes. Late WebAssign quizzes receive a 20% late penalty for each extension granted and technology projects receive a 20% penalty for each class period they are late. If you miss an exam, a copy will automatically be placed in the testing center and you have until the start of the second class period following the exam to complete the exam. Absolutely no late work will be accepted after the final.
