Course Prerequisite: Mth 252 with a grade of C- or higher.


Course Objectives: We will cover chapters 9 through 12.


Homework, Quiz, and Labs: 


Attendance: If you miss class, it is your responsibility to ask a classmate for notes on the material that you have missed. I will not have discussion notes available if you have missed class, nor will I repeat my discussion during office hours.

Electronic Devices' Policy: Nonacademic electronic devices and tardiness policies: You are not allowed to use any nonacademic electronic devices (Ipod, MP3 players, cell phones, etc.) during the class time. If you bring your cell phone into the class, you MUST turn it off. If you need to have your cell phone on, you need to talk to me prior to class.

Attendance: Attendance is mandatory. If you are consistently late to class (3 minutes or more), I will ask you not to attend the class until you resolve your time conflict.

Exams: There will be three in class exams, Exam I on April 24th, Exam II on May 22nd, and Exam III on June 5th.
