- Your grade will be computed from:
- Homework: 15% of final grade;
- Two Midterms: 25% of final grade each;
- Final Exam: 30% of final grade;

- When determining your letter grade, I will take into account
(a) your attendance and punctuality, (b) the effort you put into the course
and (c) your improvement during the course.
- To get a good grade in this course, you should do the following:
- Don't cheat on the homework.
- Turn up to class, and do so on time.
- Ask for help if you need it.
- Learn the material in the shaded boxes in the book. (This is the main
thing that the exams are testing!)
- The two midterms will be held during class on Wednesday, July 15
and Monday, July 27, 2015.
- The first midterm might be something like this.
- The second midterm might be something like this.
- The final might be something like this.
- The final examination is on Friday, August 7, 2015 in the usual
classroom at the usual class time.
Bring your CU student ID to all of your tests.
- Homework is due at the beginning of class.
Some, but not all of the problems will be graded. Justify all your answers.
- Students With Disabilities
- If you qualify for accommodations because of a disability,
please submit to me
a letter from Disability Services in a timely manner so that your needs can be
addressed. Disability Services determines accommodations based on documented
disabilities. Contact: 303-492-8671, Center for Community N200,
- If you have a temporary medical condition or injury, see guidelines
- Disability Services' letters for students with disabilities indicate
legally mandated reasonable accommodations. The syllabus statements and
answers to Frequently Asked Questions can be found
- Missed Exams
- If you know that you are going to miss an exam or cannot take the final
exam at the scheduled time, please notify your instructor immediately.
If you miss a midterm exam for any acceptable reason (e.g.
religious obligation, documented illness), that midterm exam score will be
replaced by your other midterm exam score. If you miss both midterm exams for
acceptable reasons, each midterm score will be replaced by your final
exam score. If you miss the final exam (unless it is for an acceptable
reason), you will score zero on the final and you should expect to fail the
- Religious Obligations
- Campus policy regarding religious observances requires that faculty
effort to deal reasonably and fairly with all students who, because of
religious obligations, have conflicts with scheduled exams, assignments or
required attendance. In this class, you should notify your instructor of
any conflict immediately.

- Student Classroom and Course-Related Behavior
- Students and faculty each have responsibility for maintaining an
learning environment. Those who fail to adhere to such behavioral standards may
be subject to discipline. Professional courtesy and sensitivity are especially
important with respect to individuals and topics dealing with differences of
race, color, culture, religion, creed, politics, veteran's status, sexual
orientation, gender, gender identity and gender expression, age, disability,
and nationalities. Class rosters are provided to the instructor with the
student's legal name. I will gladly honor your request to address you by an
alternate name or gender pronoun. Please advise me of this preference early in
the semester so that I may make appropriate changes to my records.
Please, no open yawning or sleeping in class. If you are
having a problem with some aspect of the course, you should discuss it with
me in a civil manner. Outbursts directed at the
instructor or grader for this course will not be tolerated.
