To Do Well in Mathematics Classes: Here are some suggestions for doing well in this class:
Come to class regularly. Attendance is required. Border line grades may be determined by the attendance record.
Come to class prepared (read the sections before they are covered in class, do the first few problems in each PROBLEM SET). Promptly do all of the assigned homework. Don't get behind!!
Write clear and concise solutions to the homework, so that when you are studying for an exam, you will be able to understand what you have done.
If you have difficulty, see the instructor or another student in the class. The Student Solution Manual, available in the Bookstore, may also be helpful.
Writing: The more you can explain to me (in words, pictures, equations, etc.) the more partial credit I can give. An incorrect answer showing that you began the problem correctly will get some partial credit. An incorrect answer with disorganized or missing work will get nothing.
Honor the equal sign. "=" means "equals". When you claim that two expressions are equal, they better be equal!!! When two expressions are equal, then say so!!!
Organize. Align the equal signs. Write neatly.
Important Notes: *** No make exams ***
A grade of I can be given only under the following circumstances:
The student is prevented by a medical or similar emergency from completing a small portion of the course requirements.
The student presents valid documentation of the emergency.
The student is passing the course at the time of the emergency.
A grade of I cannot be given as an alternative to an F, WF, or UW.
See the official schedule or the university web site for drop deadlines.
This course was offered previously under the number MATH 495. If you took MATH 495, you may not take MATH 502 for credit.
Homework: A number of homework problems will be assigned. You should work these problems even though they will not be collected. They will be similar to the test questions.
OnLine Materials: The syllabus and homework assignments can be obtained from the links at http://www.siue.edu/~srigdon.
