NJIT HONOR CODE

All Students should be aware that the Department of Mathematical Sciences takes the NJIT Honor code very seriously and enforces it strictly.  This means there must not be any forms of plagiarism, i.e., copying of homework, class projects, or lab assignments, or any form of cheating in quizzes and exams.  Under the Honor Code, students are obligated to report any such activities to the Instructor.

Textbooks: Mathematics: an Applied Approach, 8th Ed., by A. Mizrahi and M. Sullivan, John Wiley and Sons, Inc. 2004, ISBN: 0-471-32784-0


Grading Policy: The final grade in this course will be determined as follows:

 

     HW and Quizzes

 

18%

     Two Midterms:

 

24% each

     Final Exam:

 

34%

 

Homework Policy: Homework will not be collected unless I feel that the class is falling behind on the material. However, I strongly suggest that the textbook exercise problems be solved after each lecture as a practice. I also strongly recommend that you read the textbook on a regular basis in order to review the material covered in class. Exercise problem lists in the syllabus are given as a guideline only. Short quizzes will be given throughout the semester, and a take-home project may be assigned at the end of the semester.

 

 

Class Policies:

Attendance and Participation: Students must attend all classes. Absences from class will inhibit your ability to fully participate in class discussions and problem solving sessions and, therefore, affect your grade. Tardiness to class is very disruptive to the instructor and students and will not be tolerated.

 

Makeup Exam Policy: There will be no makeup exams, except in rare situations where the student has a legitimate reason for missing an exam, including illness, death in the family, accident, requirement to appear in court, etc. The student must notify the Math office and the Instructor that he/she will miss an exam. In all cases, the student must present proof for missing the exam, e.g., a doctor's note, police report, court notice, etc., clearly stating the date AND times.

 

Cellular Phones: All cellular phones and beepers must be switched off during all class times.
