Information:
1) Tests 50%
2) Takehome Tests: 25%
3) Exam 25%
There may
be several quizzes. These will count as follows: 2 quizzes = 1 test.
Projects average together for one test
grade.
A = 90100 D = 6069.
B = 8089
C = 7079 F = Failure
Makeup
Tests:
Report an absence before the test. With
my approval, you may make up tests. The make up test must be done within 1
week of the original test. Further, you must retake a test if you score
below 70 on the test. Reworked problems of the original test must be
turned in before a makeup.
Math
Lab:
A free math lab is available
for each student. Math lab assignment may be given.
Homework:
Read new sections prior to class. Do
all assigned problems and check answers in the back of the book. Ten to
Fourteen hours of homework per week is normal for this course.

Before
enrolling in this course, the student is expected to be able to:
Audit Students
Audit students
are expected to complete all work. The attendance policy applies to
audit students as well as credit students.
If you are a student who is disabled as defined under the Americans with Disabilities Act and requires assistance or support services, please seek assistance through the Center for Disability Services. A CSD Counselor will coordinate those services.
Each faculty member will use the Academic Honesty Statement developed by his or her discipline unit. Cheating and plagiarism are serious offenses. Either of these will result in a zero on the material.
STATEMENT OF NONDISCRIMINATION
Georgia Perimeter College supports the Civil Rights Act of 1964, Executive Order #11246, Title IX of the Educational Amendments of 1972, Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, and the Americans with Disabilities Act. No person shall, on the basis of age, race, religion, color, gender, sexual orientation, national origin or disability, be excluded from participation in, or be denied the benefits of, or be subjected to discrimination under any program or activity of the college.
Any individual with a grievance related to the enforcement of any of the above provisions should contact the Assistant Director of Human Resources, Ombudsperson.
The University System of Georgia requires that all students enrolled in undergraduate degree programs in University System institutions (including Georgia Perimeter College) successfully complete all parts of a competency examination in reading and English composition. This competency examination is commonly called the Regents Test, and it is free of charge. A student has two attempts to pass this test before accumulating 45 hours of collegiate credit. Please sign up for the Regents Test when you enroll in English 1102. Do this in time to have two attempts before accumulating 45 credit hours!
1) Take
home tests have an availability period and must be completed during that time. Take
home tests will be inside web ct.
Please notice the link in web ct on the front page that says
Tests and Take Home Tests. If you will click on it you will see a list of
tests. Beside the test is availability for that test. The last date listed is
the last date you may take the test. Notice that there is a range of dates.
This means you may complete them anytime in that time period. Failure to complete a takehome test will result in a zero 0.
2) No
grade will be dropped either on the in class tests or the take home tests.
3) No
makeup will be allowed on takehome tests.
4) No
makeup is allowed of a makeup test. Therefore, if you miss the initial test and
fail the makeup, you will keep the makeup grade.
5) The
policy regarding plagiarism applies to all work in this class.
6)
Students may compare answers after completion of problems on takehome tests
or receive help from an outside source, if:
a) Both
parties must have worked the problems completely.
b) No
student is allowed to copy another students work or answers.
2) Persons assisting you may show you
how to work a similar problem.
Find your average for take home tests under TKH, and your average for in class tests under TESTS. The grade that you must have to get a C in listed across under EXAM .
In Math
1111 there are 5 take home tests. In Math 97 there are 6 take home tests and in
Math 0099
there are 4 take home tests. This table shows you how zeros
affect your grade.
