Quizzes will be given each week in section. There are no make-up quizzes, but your
lowest two scores will be dropped.
Exams are given in class on Monday, Oct. 22nd, and Wednesday, Nov. 14th. You
must bring a photo ID to the exams. There are no make-up exams.
The common final for all 2A students is on Sat, Dec 8, 1:30-3:30pm. The location is
Suggested Homework:
In order to do well on the exams and final, I strongly recommend that you create a
study group to work together on the suggested homework from the textbook. The
suggested homework problems can be found in the class files section below.

Add/Drop Policy:
All add/drop/change requests can be done on-line for the first 2 weeks of classes via
Neither the instructors nor the department office can help students get into a class
which is full or waitlisted, or switch to a different discussion. All the enrollment,
including waitlist, is done electronically. The department does not sign add/drop cards
at any time.
No adding courses is allowed after week 2. No exception.
Dropping or changing grade option after week 2 is extremely difficult. Students submit
an enrollment exception via Student Access. Dean’s approval is required. (It is granted
Make-up Final Exam Policy:
It is expected that students will make every effort to take their final exam at the
scheduled time. However, requests for make-up final exams will be considered under
the following guidelines:
· A student will be granted a make-up if the Saturday final exam time violates the
student’s religious creed.
· A student may be granted a make-up exam at the discretion of the course
facilitator if the exam time would result in loss of wages constituting financial hardship,
need for child care resulting in financial hardship, inability to procure transportation or
loss of employment.
· A student may be granted a make-up exam at the discretion of the course
facilitator if there is a verifiable emergency, which prevents the student from taking the
final examination at the scheduled time. Such emergencies include, but are not limited
to, serious illness, death of immediate family member, or serious accident.
· A student will be granted a make-up if they are enrolled in Math 2B at the same
time they are re-taking Math 2A for a higher grade.
· During Fall, Winter and Spring, students registered with the Disability Services
Center (DSC) will be taking the exam at DSC on Saturday at the same time of the
regular exam. During the Summer, DSC students will have to request a make-up
exam. (All such requests will be approved.)
In all cases, the petition for make-up final exam must be presented with verifiable
evidence. Vacation plans will not constitute a legitimate excuse.
