Students must register on line for exam times and locations. Further
information is given below.

COURSE
OBJECTIVES This
course is intended to introduce students to calculus concepts that are
prerequisites for some advanced topics in business, economics, and social
sciences.

PRACTICE TESTS Practice tests are available over the
Internet at the following URL: **http://einstein.math.fsu.edu:9080.** The questions on the in-class unit tests will be
very similar to questions on the on-line practice tests. Working on-line practice problems is
very important.

TEST/QUIZ
POLICIES No
makeup tests or early tests or quizzes will be given. A test absence or quiz absence will be excused only if the
student presents sufficient verifiable evidence of acceptable, extenuating,
unavoidable circumstances. An acceptable medical excuse must state explicitly
that the holder should be excused from class. Students missing class because of a family death must show
evidence of the death and evidence of the relationship to the deceased. Students will not be given excused
absences to attend family functions or non-university activities.

If a test absence is excused, then the final exam
grade will be used for the missed test grade. The final-exam grade minus a
penalty will be used for an unexcused test grade. If a quiz absence is excused,
then no grade will be assigned to the missed quiz. A grade of zero will be
assigned for an unexcused quiz grade. No quiz or test grades will be dropped.
Students must bring FSU ID cards to all tests.

GRADING There will be three unit tests, a cumulative final
examination, and several short quizzes. Numerical course grades will be determined by the
larger of Av1 and Av2 where Av1 = (5U+Q+4E)/10, Av2 = (4U+Q+5E)/10, U = test weighted
average = (3T1+4T2+5T3)/12, Q = quiz average, E = final exam grade. Letter grades will be determined from
rounded numerical grades as follows. A: 90-100; B: 80-89; C: 70-79; D: 60-69;
F: 0-59. Plus/Minus grades will be assigned to high/low numerical grades; for
example, 77.5
- 79.4 would be a C+, 69.5 – 72.4 would be a C-; analogous +/- grades
would be assigned to other numerical grades.

HELP
CENTER The
Help Center is located in 110 MCH
The operating hours are MTWR 2:00-7:00 p.m. The Help Center is closed on Fridays and on weekends. The Help Center opens the second week
of classes.

ACADEMIC DISHONESTY The academic honor system is
followed strictly. Students possessing unauthorized
notes, using prohibited calculators, or giving/receiving unauthorized
assistance on an exam will be dealt with according to FSU Honor Code policy.

(Cf. http://dof.fsu.edu/honorpolicy.htm)

ADA STATEMENT Students with disabilities needing
academic accommodations should: 1) register with the Student Disability Resource
Center (SDRC); 2) bring letters to their instructors from SDRC indicating they
need and have been certified to receive academic accommodations. This should be
done within the first week of classes.
Students will not be given special accommodations until they are
certified.

COMPREHENSIVE
FINAL EXAM: The Final Exam is
comprehensive. Your Final Exam might not be scheduled in your lab
classroom, but will be given in one of the four computer equipped classrooms in
HTL or in 107 MCH. The Final Exam will be given M-F of Exam Week (Dec 6 -
10). You will register, on-line, for a final exam time. Exam
Registration will open at 7 a.m. on Wednesday November 3. You must
schedule an exam time before 12:00 noon on Wednesday November 24. During this 3 week period, you will be able to change your exam time,
depending on available times. You must check your exam schedule
carefully. After final exam registration closes, changes, without
penalty, will be made only for conflicts that involve documented changes in the
exam schedule for your other classes. That is, changes will be made only if an
instructor in one of your classes changes the time of the final exam from that
given in the Directory of Classes, and this change conflicts with your selected
MAC 2233 exam time. A penalty, of 15 points will be imposed on your
exam
for any other changes made after registration closes, this includes students
who fail to register before the deadline, changes
in travel, or because of airline ticket purchases. The link for the on-line
registration will be at the URL given below. This URL will not open until 7:00
a.m. on November 3-rd.
