Missing a midterm is permitted only for the most compelling reasons. Except in extraordinary situations, you should obtain permission from the professor to miss an exam in advance; otherwise you will be awarded a 0. There are no make-up midterms -- if you are excused from taking a midterm, your course grade will be determined by giving extra weight to the final exam. Except in extreme situations, any student missing the final exam will fail the course.

**
Grading:
**

- Homework and Quizzes 15%
- Hour Exams 15% each
- Final Exam 40%

**
Incompletes:
**
Only given in exceptional circumstances, and only when the student has satisfactorily
completed all but a small portion of the work in the course. Students **must**
make prior arrangements with the professor (not the TA), well before the end of the quarter.

** Calculators: **
All students must have a calculator that does basic arithmetic and exponentials.

**
Attendance:
**
Students are expected to attend all lectures and recitations.
The lectures may include supplementary material and methods that are not in the book, but
could be on the exams. Attendance may be checked, and included in the grade line.

**
Grading Standards and Student Conduct:
**
Students are expected to be familiar with University of Minnesota policies on
grading standards and
student
conduct, including the consequences for students who violate standards of academic
honesty.

**
Complaints:
**
I will be happy to discuss any complaints you might have about your recitation instructor.
You can address complaints about your professor to Prof.
Larry Gray, Director of
Undergraduate Studies, Vincent Hall 115.
