(B2) ONLINE HOMEWORK WITH MY MATHLAB THROUGH CANVAS:
Please go to Canvas and NOT
MyMathLab to register for your MyMathLab course. You do not need to
know the number of the course, it should be there as part of your
Canvas course. Here is the info sheet on how to do this.
rough lecture schedule is available inside the full syllabus. The
typed notes from which I
prepare lectures will be inserted below, chapter by chapter, in the
order that they will
be covered. They are NOT a replacement for the textbook. The
handwritten lectures will be uploaded in the folder "Handwritten lectures" in "Files" in Canvas.
Makeup tests will only be given when students have valid medical
certificates or letters of attendance for approved student events.
The final exam is on Friday December 10, 11:20am - 2:10 pm. Full information on how the tests and final exam will be conducted will be provided in the information sheets in the folder "Tests" in "Files" in Canvas.
The items are weighted as
MyLab Homework: 15%
Gradescope quizzes: 10%
Midterm tests: 50% (The lowest of the three tests counts 10% and the remaining two bests tests count 20% each)
Final exam: 25%
No extra credit.
A final percent of 90+, 80+, 70+, 60+ guarantees a grade of
respectively A, B, C, D respectively, though there will be a curve on
the final percentage that could yield e.g. an A for a lower grade.
All grades will be posted on Canvas.
