MATH 36 Quizzes and Exams


The questions on the quizzes will be similar to the assigned homework problems and the reading done in preparation for class.  They will be given in class or assigned as a take home quiz. The quizzes or take home quizzes will be announced in class prior to being given.   

The purpose of quizzes is to help you keep current with the course content and to allow you to assess your knowledge of several concepts being presented in the course.  You will be graded for accuracy, clear writing and clear explanations to support your work.  The scores for Quizzes represent 90 points of the grade for the course.


Three in-class examinations will be given.  The dates of these exams are contained in the Lecture Schedule and Assignments  web page and at the end of the syllabus.  If you miss an exam without an official excuse (such as illness or official university business), then you will be allowed to take a makeup exam, but with an automatic 20% deduction from the grade.  To avoid this deduction, you must notify me with your official excuse before the date and time of the exam.  This notification may be performed in person, via e-mail or by telephone.  Each exam represents 100 points of the grade for the course.

The tentative exam dates are:

The final examination in the course will be comprehensive.

Do not make plans to leave the university before the end of final examination week. Travel plans do not constitute an official excuse for missing an examination or for obtaining a conflict or makeup examination. A 20% deduction will be enforced in the event that a student's travel plans conflict with the university's designated final examination period for this course.  The final examination represents 100 points of the grade in the course.
