Schedule. In general, MLP allows three attempts at exactly the same problem before marking the problem wrong. After the problem has been marked wrong, students may work additional versions of the same kind of problem until they are successful. To get a new version of the problem, click on the “Similar Exercise” button. Students will be given credit once they answer a version correctly.

o Students may continue to work on the homework assignments after the posted due date without any penalty. Access to the homework assignments will expire Monday, December 10, 2018 11:59 PM EST.

o The student does not need to complete all homework problems in one session. The same homework problems and values will be available to the student the next time they access the homework assignment. Students may also print individual problems or entire assignments.

 QUIZZES: MyLabsPlus(MLP) (15%) o Students will complete quizzes posted in MLP; see Section XI: Class Schedule. Quizzes are named

“Quiz (number) (Chapter (numbers) & (number))”. o Quizzes must be completed by their due date. o Students will have 2 hours to complete each quiz. o Students will have 3 attempts for each quiz. o Quizzes may be taken on any computer that has the appropriate downloads.

 

 DISCUSSION BOARD ACTIVITIES: Canvas (5%) o Several discussion activities will be posted on the discussion board in Canvas to demonstrate

knowledge of the important concepts covered in this course.

 TESTS #1: MyLabsPlus (MLP) (15%) o Students will complete Tests #1 posted in MyLabsPlus; see Section XI: Class Schedule. o Students will have 2 hours to complete the test. o Students will have 2 attempts for Tests #1 o Tests #1 may be taken on any computer that has the appropriate downloads. o Students should only use a TI-83 Plus or TI-84 graphing calculator, or equivalent, blank paper and

pencil during the Test #1. The use of calculators with computer algebra systems (for example, TI- 89’s and TI-92’s) is not permitted.

 Tests #2, #3 : proctored by Proctorio in Canvas (15% each) o Students will have 2 hours to complete the Test #2 and two hours to complete Test #3

 

 

MAT 1033 INTERMEDIATE ALGEBRA

 

VPAA: Revised 9/11, 3/14, 11/16 Page 7

o Students will have 1 attempt for the Test #2 and 1 attempt on Test #3 o Students may use a TI-83 Plus or TI-84 graphing calculator or equivalent on tests. The use of

calculators with computer algebra systems (for example, TI-89’s and TI-92’s) is not permitted. o Students have to use a small white board for working problems, rather than using paper and

pencil. o Students may NOT use any software packages, the textbook or the eBook during the Test #2, Test

#3. o Visit www.fsw.edu/online/testing for information how to take exam proctored by Proctorio.

 

 FINAL EXAM: proctored by Proctorio in Canvas (25%) o The Final Exam is cumulative and includes all chapters covered in class. o Students will have 110 minutes to complete the Final Exam. o Students will only have 1 attempt for the Final Exam. o Students may use a TI-83 Plus or TI-84 graphing calculator or equivalent on Final Exam. The use of

calculators with computer algebra systems (for example, TI-89’s and TI-92’s) is not permitted on Final Exam.

o Student have to use a small white board for working problems, rather than using paper and pencil.

o Students may NOT use any software packages, the textbook or the eBook during the Final Exam. o Visit www.fsw.edu/online/testing for information how to take exam proctored by Proctorio.

 

 MAKE-UP POLICY: In case of sudden illness or emergency, students must contact the instructor as soon as they realize that they are unable to take a test or the final exam at the scheduled time. Each case will be reviewed individually. Valid and detailed documentation is a prerequisite for scheduling a makeup exam under such extenuating circumstances.

 

 RESPECT: Students are expected to treat each other and the professor with the utmost respect.

 ACADEMIC INTEGRITY: While study groups are encouraged, unless otherwise announced by your instructor, all work turned in for a grade should be done independently. Any submission by a student of someone else’s work as his or her own or the use of any prohibited aids during testing constitutes cheating. This includes unauthorized use of a solutions manual, mathematical software or website. The student will earn a zero for that assignment and will be referred to the Dean’s Office. A second instance of academic dishonesty will result in a failing grade for the course. It is each student’s responsibility to become familiar with the student code of conduct and academic integrity policy found in the Florida SouthWestern State College catalog.

 

VII. ATTENDANCE POLICY:

 This is an online course – there are no scheduled meeting times.

 The first day of the Spring 2018 semester is Monday, August 20, 2018.

 Attendance Verification Requirement: A student’s attendance in this course will be verified upon the completion of the following all three activities:

1. Completing the first homework assignment on section 3.1 in MyLabsPlus 2. Completing the second homework assignment on section 3.2 in MyLabsPlus 3. Completing discussion Board Activity “Introduce yourself” in Canvas Failure to complete the three activities listed above by August 27, 2018 11:59 PM EST may prevent the students from receiving their financial aid.

VPAA: Revised 9/11, 3/14, 11/16 Page 8

Upon the Attendance Verification Requirement is fulfilled, instructor will verify student attendance by August 28, 2018 11:59 PM EST (by midnight). The Financial Aid Office must verify that students receiving Title IV funds attend/ participate in class. Students must repay their Title IV funds if not attending class through the end of the withdrawal period. Any student who stops attending/participating in class and does not officially withdraw will be assigned a grade of “F”.

VIII. GRADING POLICY:

The course grade will be calculated based on: Homework Average 10% Quizzes Average 15% Tests Average 45% Discussion Board 5% Final Exam 25% Total 100% Before computing the homework average, the lowest two homework scores will be dropped. All test grades count toward the final grade. No test grades will be dropped. If a test is not taken, the assigned score for that test is zero. The final exam is weighted 25%. Additionally, before computing the final score for the course, the lowest score among the scores (test 1, test 2, test 3) will be replaced with the final exam score provided that the final exam score is higher than the lowest among those three scores. Final letter grade will be assigned according to the following scale:

90 – 100 = A 80 – 89 = B 70 – 79 = C 60 – 69 = D Below 60 = F

(Note: The “incomplete” grade [“I”] should be given only when unusual circumstances warrant. An “incomplete” is not a substitute for a “D,” “F,” or “W.” Refer to the policy on “incomplete grades.)
