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.

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 takehome 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.
