Homework is the most important part of the course. If you keep up with the homework you will probably do well. If you do not, you probably won't. The midterms and final exams will cover the material on the homework. The final exam is the deadline for all late work.

Students are required to have either a TI 83 calculator or one with the capabilities of a TI 83 like the TI 84+.

The term paper will be a two page reaction paper whose topic is "What have I learned in this class that is applicable to the real world?"

Students are responsible for announcements made in class.
