2/5: The exercises assigned today are due on 2/10 except as noted. Written exercises should be written neatly (not in your notes!) and turned in at the beginning of class on the indicated date. Of course, there is nothing to turn in for reading assignments, but there could be a quiz or writing assignment over that material.

You are encouraged to stop by my office for help on the homework. However, you may not ask questions over homework on the day that the assignment is due.

Do NOT assume that any assignment beyond today's is correct! I often change them the day of class.

* Do this before our next class; do this first, before doing any other part of this assignment: Read the **complete** course introduction (syllabus) at this link. It's also available on the Help Page and on Schoology. This document contains
information that you may need to know. Some of it could appear on
a quiz.

* Do this before our next class: Read the Carthage Academic Honesty Guidelines. There is a link at the top of this page.

* Do this before our next class: Take this brief background survey. (Yes, this is required, and you will receive credit for doing it!) You will need to log in to your Carthage
account.

* Do this before our next class: On a piece of paper you can turn in, do exercises 1ab from page 3 of the notes. Do these on a sheet of paper, not in your notes! You will turn in these exercises at the beginning of our next class by placing your assignment on the pile at the front of the room.

* Do this before our next class: Create an account on MyMathLab and enroll in our course.
There are instructions at this link. I will check this on Friday, and you will receive a few points for creating this account! If you don't have a code, sign up for a free trial and get a code as soon as possible. **There is no reason not to do this!**

* Check the blog (see the link on the left side of this page) for updates. You should check the blog every day. I will provide homework hints, comments on how our class went, and more!

The following exercises are due 2/10.

* Re-read the course introduction online.

* Stop by my office (Straz 292) and sign the form on my door. If I'm in, say hi! If I'm not in, I really hope you'll also stop by when I'm in.

On Thursday's quiz, I'm going to ask you to submit your work in Schoology. You can find instructions on how to do this here. If you want to test out the system before the quiz, I have created an assignment called "Test Folder" in the Quizzes and Exams folder in Schoology. Upload a document to that folder as a test. This test is not required, but if you do this test and have trouble on Thursday, I'll understand. On the other hand, if you don't do the test and have trouble on Thursday, I won't be so understanding. If you have troubles uploading during the quiz, contact me via email IMMEDIATELY.

You will receive a 0 on the quiz if you do not upload work for each problem in your handwriting. You will need to submit your work in one document, so make sure your work fits on one side of one page.

AFTER YOU HAVE COMPLETED THE QUIZ, UPLOAD YOUR WORK THROUGH SCHOOLOGY INTO THE ASSIGNMENT ENTITLED *04/09 QUIZ WORK FOLDER*. IT'S INSIDE THE QUIZZES AND EXAMS FOLDER.

No additional videos or assignments today. Have a great break! Notice that we have an exam on the Thursday after break. More details to follow!

4/10: No Class - Easter Break!

4/13: No Class - Easter Break!

4/15: Review for the exam tomorrow. There is no additional assignment today. The exam will be over material covered from 3/6-4/8.

This exam will be just like an in-class exam. You should do your own work, with no assistance from any other person, website, book, text, notes, or anything that you would not be permitted to use in class. You should not go to any website during the exam other that MyMathLab. You should not use the graphing capabilites of your calculator, nor should you use your calculator to compute any derivatives. The exam will be given in MyMathLab, and will be available from 7:45-9:50 am. You will have 90 minutes to complete the exam, which I will write to be a one-hour exam. If you start the exam after 8:20 am, you will have less than 90 minutes to complete the exam.

The exam will be mostly multiple choice, but as with the quizzes, I will collect your work through a work folder in Schoology. Using a pdf scanning app for your phone (Adobe Scan is free and does a good job) is ideal (actually writing on a tablet is also awesome), and I would prefer that you collect your work into a single document and submit that through Schoology. In case you have trouble doing that, I will create three work folders so you can upload three different pages separately if you need to do that. If you have more than 3 pages of work and can't get them into a single document, send the rest to me as email attachments.

Because this exam is multiple choice but I am grading your work, I offer the following advice. If you work a problem but don't get any of the answers listed, check your work quickly to see if you can find your mistake, and if not, choose an answer at random or choose the "I didn't get any of these answers" if that option exists - I will put that option in the questions I write. Don't spend a long time trying to get one of the answers given, then wind up running out of time. As many of you have experienced, if all you do is add incorrectly or drop a minus sign, I give generous partial credit. Of course, if you guess right on a problem but show now work, you also lose credit. So why do I even collect the multiple choice answers? That's actually a good question. I've found that they can tell me what mistake to look for (for example, a dropped minus sign) in your work.

I will be close to my computer throughout the exam (no video production on Thursday!), so email me if you have technology issues during the exam.

Any questions on the exam or how it will work? Ask them in a comment on the blog.

No additional assignment today. Study for the third exam. I may have a virtual office hour this morning. Stay tuned for more details.

5/14 : Exam 3 today over the material covered from 4/17-5/11. The material from 5/11 is on the exam even though the homework is not due until Friday.

Here's the short version: The exam will open at 7:45 am. It should take about an hour, but I will set the timer for 90 minutes. You must have both your Google form and your work submitted through Schoology to me before 9:50 am, or you could lose a significant amount of credit. Do not let the timer run out, or your work will be lost!

Here's the long version:

This exam will be given through a Google form, with work submitted through Schoology. The exam will be available at 7:45 am, and will close promplty at 9:50. It will be written to take about an hour, so you should have plenty of time if you start at 8:00 am. I expect to have all of your work by 9:50am.

As we learned on the last quiz, if you don't submit your work on time, you lose your work! On this exam, if you do not submit your work on time, there will be a penalty, so set a timer to remind you to submit your work before time runs out! If you have not submitted your work by 9:50 am, you may lose your work even if your individual timer has not run out!

5/15: ONLINE INSTRUCTION

We will review for the final exam today.

* Study for the final exam on Monday.

* Review the first two exams, all quizzes, and any material you think you need to work on to prepare for the final exam.

5/18: Final Exam from 8:00-10:00 over the entire course, start to finish! The exam will be given through a Google form, with work collected through Schoology.

Here's the short summary: complete the Google form by 10:00 am, and submit your work through Schoology by 10:15am. If I haven't received both of these by 10:15 am, you may lose a significant amount of credit.

Here's the long version:

I'll have the exam open by 7:45 if you want to start early. You will have 120 minutes to complete the exam even if you start early, and you must be have all of your work completed and submitted, both the Google form and your work submitted through Schoology, by 10:15am. Work submitted after 10:15am may not be accepted. If you choose to start after 8:00am, you will have less time to work on the exam.

As we learned on the last quiz, if you don't submit your work before the computer timer runs out, you lose your work! On this exam, if you do not submit your work before the timer runs out, there will be a penalty, so set another timer to remind you to submit your work before the exam timer runs out! If you have not submitted your Google form by 10:15am, you may lose your work even if your individual timer has not run out! If you have not submitted your work through Schoology by 10:15, I may not accepted it, which will result in a significant loss of credit.

* Take the exam. Then have a great break!
