CLASS TIMES AND LOCATION: Class times and rooms can be found on My Schedule.

OFFICE HOURS: My office hours are posted on My Schedule. I am generally available during the day if I am not in class. Let me know ahead of time if you plan to stop by so that I know to expect you.

HOMEWORK and QUIZZES: To learn calculus, you must attempt the assigned homework problems from the textbook (see WebAssign below). All quizzes will be based on the assigned homework. You should expect a quiz each day. If you miss a quiz because of an unexcused absence, you will not have a chance to make the quiz up.

MATHEMATICA : You can expect several assignments that will require the use of Mathematica. The scores will be counted as quiz grades.

All students may install a free copy of Mathematica on a personal computer. Mathematica 8 is the most current edition. If you have installed Mathematica 7, you should remove (uninstall) Mathematica 7 from your hard drive and install Mathematica 8. You will be prompted to log in with your UVM NetID to access the page.

WebAssign: WebAssign is an online homework resource that all students must purchase for the course.

TESTS: There will be two tests during the semester and one final exam. If you plan to miss a semester test, you should make arrangements immediately, if not ahead of time, to make up the exam. If you do not take the make-up exam within a week, you will receive a zero as a score. I reserve the right to fail anyone who fails the final exam.

IMPORTANT NOTE: All quizzes, homework assignments and exams are to be completed using a pencil. Please purchase a pencil and a quality eraser. Neatness counts.

ACADEMIC INTEGRITY: All quizzes and hour tests are closed book with no outside help. Feel free to discuss the homework problems with others. However, all work turned in for a grade will be considered as your own work. The University of Vermont has a strict policy regarding Academic Integrity. Academic dishonesty or an offense against academic honesty includes acts that may subvert or compromise the integrity of the educational process. Offenses against the Code of Academic Integrity are

deemed serious and insult the integrity of the entire academic community. Any suspected violations of the code are taken very seriously and will be forwarded to the Center for Student Ethics & Standards for further investigation.

STUDENT SERVICES: If you have a learning or other disability for which you may require special accomodations, please notify me immediately. You will need to provide official documentation from UVM's ACCESS Office. For information on academic support programs, visit the Dean of Students Office. The University offers counseling services through the Center for Health and Wellbeing. Tutors are available (at no cost to you) through the Learning Co-op at the Living/Learning Center.

CLASSROOM ETIQUETTE: It is important that everyone behave in a manner that will create an optimal learning environment.

Students will attend all regularly scheduled classes, except for those occasions warranting an excused absence under the University's Attendance Policy. Students have the right to practice the religion of their choice. Any student who plans to miss class because of a religious event should submit in writing by the end of the second full week of classes their documented religious holiday schedule for the semester. Students who miss work for the purpose of religious observance will be permitted to make up this work. Students will arrive for class on time and should expect to stay in the class for the full period. The student will alert the instructor prior to class if the student must leave early. Students will inform the instructor of any planned absences. The student will take responsibility for obtaining missed assignments from other students. Cell phones, pagers, beepers and other electronic devices will be turned off prior to the start of class. You will not "text" in class. Students will refrain from using computers for non-academic purposes during class time. Students will not engage in behavior that detracts from the learning environment, to include talking in class, sleeping, doing outside work and entering and leaving the classroom. Students will wait until the instructor dismisses the class before packing up.

It is to the student's advantage to attend class, to listen to the instructor, to take detailed notes, to do the assigned work and to study. Grades are a reflection of the diligence of the student.
