    1. contribution to grade (maximum of 200 points out of 800 for course)
      1. Homework and quizzes for the first half-semester (until 12 March) will be combined and rescaled on percentage basis: max=100 points.
      2. Homework and quizzes for second half-semester (13 March to end) will be combined and rescaled on percentage basis: max=100 points.
    2. graded homework
      1. The assignment for each day of class will specify part of the text to be studied — your first study of such assigned reading should be done before that class. Almost all reading assignments will have some Reading Questions to complete before class.
      2. WeBWorK, a free online system, will be used to present and grade homework problems for daily assignments.
      3. A few problems in the text will be assigned each week to have written work, solutions, & interpretations submitted at start of class (usually on Friday). Written homework will be graded & returned with solutions. Incomplete work has the potential to earn some partial credit.
    3. quizzes will be given one or more times per week
      1. Some quizzes will be scheduled, some will be spontaneous (pop) and a few may be take-home.
      2. For each half-semester, the lowest score for an in-class quiz will be dropped.
      3. There will be no make-up quizzes.
  5. The Math Learning Center in Math 011 is open weekdays for individual or group study. Free tutoring is available there: 9am–4pm on Monday through Thursday, and 10am–1pm on Friday.
