TECHNOLOGY: 

Grading: 
There will be 3 exams plus a final exam (part of which will be comprehensive). Grades will be weighted as follows: 


Tests 1, 2, 3 
20% 
each 


Final Exam 
25% 



Homework/quizzes/classwork 
15% 


Sometime after Test 3, there will be a single makeup exam over the material on tests 13; the grade on this exam can be used to replace your lowest grade on the first three tests, up to a maximum grade of 85 if you make complete corrections for tests 13 or 70 without the completed corrections. If you take any test late for any reason, there will be a penalty of 10 points off your test grade. However, no late tests will be allowed after I hand the graded tests back in class. If you miss a test, you must try to take it during this “late” period. If you do not take the test during that period, you will receive a 0 for that grade. In that case, you will need to take the makeup exam to replace that 0. Grades will be assigned as follows: 

A : 
90% or better and a grade of at least 80% on the final 
D : 
60%  69% 

B : 
80%  89% and a grade of at least 70% on the final 
F : 
below 60% 

C : 
70%  79% and a grade of at least 60% on the final 




W : 
Withdrawn by student or instructor prior to last withdrawal date on school calendar 

I : 
Incomplete grades (I) will be given only in very rare circumstances. Generally, to receive a grade of "I", a student must have taken all tests, be passing, and after the last date to withdraw, have a personal tragedy occur which prevents course completion. An incomplete grade cannot be carried beyond the established date in the following semester. The completion date is determined by the instructor but may not be later than the final deadline for withdrawal in the subsequent semester. 

Attendance: 
Attendance is required in this course. It is extremely important for you to attend class regularly. I MAY drop you from the course for excessive absences, although I make no commitment to do so. 

Withdrawal: 
It is the student's responsibility to initiate all withdrawals in this course. The instructor may withdraw students for excessive absences (4) but makes no commitment to do this for the student. After the last day to withdraw, neither the student nor the instructor may initiate a withdrawal. It is the responsibility of each student to ensure that his or her name is removed from the roll should he or she decide to withdraw from the class. The instructor does, however, reserve the right to drop a student should he or she feel it is necessary. The student is also strongly encouraged to retain a copy of the withdrawal form for their records. Students who enroll for the third or subsequent time in a course taken since Fall, 2002, may be charged a higher tuition rate, for that course. State law permits students to withdraw from no more than six courses during their entire undergraduate career at Texas public colleges or universities. With certain exceptions, all course withdrawals automatically count towards this limit. Details regarding this policy can be found in the ACC college catalog. The withdrawal deadline for Spring 2019 is April 29, 2019. 

Keeping up: 
Please, try to keep up with the homework and with the lecture in class. There just isn't much time to catch up. This means you have to be sure to allow yourself plenty of time to do the homework and to study. 

Classroom behavior: 
Classroom behavior should support and enhance learning. Behavior that disrupts the learning process will be dealt with appropriately, which may include having the student leave class for the rest of that day. In serious cases, disruptive behavior may lead to a student being withdrawn from the class. ACC's policy on student discipline can be found in the Student Handbook on the web at: http://www.austincc.edu/handbook 

Class participation:

All students are expected to actively participate in this class. This can include asking relevant questions in class, participating in class discussions and other inclass activities, helping other students, coming to office hours with questions, and doing other things that contribute to the class. 

Ask questions: 
Please, please, please, if you don't understand something, or you aren't clear about something, or if you think I (or the book) have made a mistake (it has been known to happen), or if you have any other questions, please ask. Don't let confusion accumulate. If you don't want to ask in class, come to our office hours (or call) and ask. It is much easier to ask a question now than to miss it on the test. I expect all students to participate in class discussions and other activities. Trust me, you will get much more out of the class if you become actively involved in it. 

Always show your work: 
It is much more important that you understand the processes involved in solving problems than that you just give me the right answer. If I see from your work that you understand what you are doing, I will usually give partial credit for a problem, even if you made a mistake somewhere along the line. If you don't show your work (unless I believe you could reasonably do it in your head), I may not give you full credit, even if the answer is right. If you can really do something in your head, that's great, but when in doubt, write it down. It is also very important that you write what you mean. I will correct your notation the first few times, but I will start counting it wrong if you continue to write things incorrectly. In addition, please write clearly and legibly. If I can't read it, I won't grade it. 

Time required and outside help: 
To do homework and study requires two or three times as much time outside of class as the time you spend in class in order to succeed in this course. If you need more outofclass help than you can obtain in your instructor's office hours, free tutoring is available in any of ACC's Learning Labs. ACC main campuses have Learning Labs which offer free firstcome, firstserve tutoring in mathematics courses. The locations, contact information and hours of availability of the Learning Labs are posted at: http://www.austincc.edu/tutor

ACC College Policies
Statement on Scholastic Dishonesty  A student attending ACC assumes
responsibility for conduct compatible with the mission of the college as an
educational institution. Students
have the responsibility to submit coursework that is the result of their own
thought, research, or selfexpression. Students must follow all instructions given by faculty or designated
college representatives when taking examinations, placement assessments, tests,
quizzes, and evaluations. Actions
constituting scholastic dishonesty include, but are not limited to, plagiarism,
cheating, fabrication, collusion, and falsifying documents. Penalties for scholastic
dishonesty will depend upon the nature of the violation and may range from
lowering a grade on one assignment to an “F” in the course and/or expulsion
from the college. See the Student
Standards of Conduct and Disciplinary Process and other policies at http://www.austincc.edu/current/needtoknow
Student Rights and Responsibilities  Students at the college have the
rights accorded by the U.S. Constitution to freedom of speech, peaceful
assembly, petition, and association. These rights carry with them the
responsibility to accord the same rights to others in the college community and
not to interfere with or disrupt the educational process. Opportunity for
students to examine and question pertinent data and assumptions of a given
discipline, guided by the evidence of scholarly research, is appropriate in a
learning environment. This concept is accompanied by an equally demanding
concept of responsibility on the part of the student. As willing partners in
learning, students must comply with college rules and procedures.
Statement on Students with Disabilities  Each ACC campus offers support
services for students with documented disabilities. Students with disabilities
who need classroom, academic or other accommodations must request them through
Student Accessibility Services (SAS, formerly OSD). Students are encouraged to request
accommodations when they register for courses or at least three weeks before
the start of the semester, otherwise the provision of accommodations may be
delayed.
Students who have received approval for accommodations
from SAS for this course must provide the instructor with the ‘Notice of
Approved Accommodations’ from SAS before accommodations will be provided. Arrangements for academic accommodations
can only be made after the instructor receives the ‘Notice of Approved
Accommodations’ from the student.
Students with approved accommodations are encouraged
to submit the ‘Notice of Approved Accommodations’ to the instructor at the
beginning of the semester because a reasonable amount of time may be needed to
prepare and arrange for the accommodations. Additional information about Student
Accessibility Services is available at HYPERLINK "http://www.austincc.edu/support/osd/" http://www.austincc.edu/support/osd/
Safety Statement  Austin Community College is committed to providing a safe
and healthy environment for study and work. You are expected to learn and
comply with ACC environmental, health and safety procedures and agree to follow
ACC safety policies. Additional information on these can be found at http://www.austincc.edu/ehs. Because some health and safety
circumstances are beyond our control, we ask that you become familiar with the
Emergency Procedures poster and Campus Safety Plan map in each classroom.
Additional information about emergency procedures and how to sign up for ACC
Emergency Alerts to be notified in the event of a serious emergency can be
found at http://www.austincc.edu/emergency/.
Please note, you are expected to conduct yourself
professionally with respect and courtesy to all. Anyone who thoughtlessly or
intentionally jeopardizes the health or safety of another individual will be
dismissed from the day’s activity, may be withdrawn from the class, and/or
barred from attending future activities.
You are expected to conduct yourself professionally
with respect and courtesy to all. Anyone who thoughtlessly or intentionally
jeopardizes the health or safety of another individual will be immediately
dismissed from the day’s activity, may be withdrawn from the class, and/or
barred from attending future activities.
Communication with your Instructor  All email communication to students
will be sent solely to the student’s ACCmail account or math software if
applicable, with the expectation that such communications will be read in a
timely fashion. Likewise, students should use their ACCmail account
or math software when communicating with instructors. Instructors
will respond to student emails within 3 business days, if no response has been
received by the student at the end of that time, then the student should send a
reminder to the instructor.
Testing Center Policy  Under certain circumstances, an
instructor may have students take an examination in a testing center. Students using the Academic Testing
Center must govern themselves according to the Student Guide for Use of ACC
Testing Centers and should read the entire guide before going to take the exam. To request an exam, one must have:
· Course Abbreviation (e.g., ENGL)
· Course Number (e.g.,1301)
· Course
Synonym (e.g., 10123)
· Course
Section (e.g., 005)
· Instructor's Name
Do NOT bring cell phones to the Testing Center. Having your cell phone in the testing
room, regardless of whether it is on or off, will revoke your testing
privileges for the remainder of the semester. ACC Testing Center policies can be found
at http://www.austincc.edu/testctr/
Student And Instructional Services  ACC strives to provide exemplary
support to its students and offers a broad variety of opportunities and
services. Information on these
services and support systems is available at: http://www.austincc.edu/s4/ Links to many student services and
other information can be found at: http://www.austincc.edu/current/ For help setting up your ACCeID, ACC
Gmail, or ACC Blackboard, see a Learning Lab Technician at any ACC Learning
Lab.
Concealed Handgun Policy  The Austin Community College District
concealed handgun policy ensures compliance with Section 411.2031 of the Texas
Government Code (also known as the Campus Carry Law), while maintaining ACC’s
commitment to provide a safe environment for its students, faculty, staff, and
visitors. Beginning August 1, 2017, individuals who are licensed to carry (LTC)
may do so on campus premises except in locations and at activities prohibited
by state or federal law, or the college’s concealed handgun policy. It is the
responsibility of license holders to conceal their handguns at all times.
Persons who see a handgun on campus are asked to contact the ACC Police
Department by dialing 222 from a campus phone or 5122237999. Refer to the
concealed handgun policy online at austincc.edu/campuscarry.
Student Support Services  Resources to support you are
available at every campus. Food pantries are available at all campus
Student Life offices (https://sites.austincc.edu/sl/programs/foodpantry/). Assistance
paying for childcare or utility bills is available at any campus Support Center (http://www.austincc.edu/students/supportcenter). For
sudden, unexpected expenses that may cause you to withdraw from one or more of
your courses, go to http://www.austincc.edu/SEF to request emergency
assistance through the Student Emergency Fund. Help with budgeting
for college and family life is available through the Student Money
Management Office (http://sites.austincc.edu/money/). Counselors are
