Note: Topics in bold face are considered extremely important to
to the curriculum and should be emphasized accordingly.

Tests: The tests are generally closed book, and require students to
demonstrate problem solving skills by showing work for the
problems. No Test Make-ups.

Grading a) Homework 10%, b) Tests 60%, d) Final test 30 %.
Policy A: 89-100%, B: 79-88%; C 66-78% ; D: 55-65%; f –bellow 55.

Specific Department Guidelines for Math 112:
It is expected that the students have an introduction to calculators at some point after Chapter 4.
However, on all exams and work pertaining to Chapters 1-4 , students must demonstrate their
ability to perform fundamental calculations without the calculator.
Additional support material for this course includes : software based tutorials, topic specific video
presentations, and tutoring, available at the Mathematics Lab in the Library.
