Class attendance is strongly encouraged. In addition to new material, important course information will be given in class, and sometimes quizzes will be administered.

Quizzes will sometimes be given during class. Quizzes will not be announced in advance. They will be short and quick (5-10 minutes) and will test your knowledge and computational skills. We will often discuss the quizzes right away, so no late quizzes are given. However, two lowest scores are dropped, so if you miss one or two of them, your zeros will be dropped. The quizzes are based on your homework. To do well on quizzes, do your homework diligently, check your answers, and ask questions whenever you miss something.

Homework will be assigned for each section. It is not collected or graded, however, as mentioned above, the quizzes are based on your homework, so it is very important to do it.

Exams: There will be three tests (50 minutes long each) and one final comprehensive exam (2 hours long). If for any reason you can not take a test at the scheduled time, please let your instructor know as soon as possible, and certainly before the test. See schedule for exam dates.

There will be one extra credit opportunity at the end of the semester. To be eligible for extra credit, you must have your camera turned on every class.

Extra Help: It is essential not to fall behind, because each class may use the material studied previously. If you have trouble with some material, seek help in the following ways:

• Ask your instructor, either in class or privately. Don't be shy to ask questions. If you don't understand something, chances are very high that somebody else doesn't understand that either. So your classmates will be thankful to you for aksing questions in class! My contact info is given on the course web page.
• Work with your classmates. Note: working on your homework together is allowed and encouraged, however, every student should learn how to solve all homework problems on their own.
If you are having any difficulties, seek help immediately - don't wait until it is too late to recover from falling behind, or failing to understand a concept!

Students with disabilities: upon identifying themselves to the University, students with disabilities will receive necessary accommodation for learning and evaluation. For more information, see http://www.fresnostate.edu/studentaffairs/ssd/.

Academic honesty: cheating and plagiarism will not be tolerated in this class. For information on the University's policy, see the University Catalog (section Policies and Regulations).

Honor Code: Members of the CSU Fresno academic community adhere to principles of academic integrity and mutual respect while engaged in university work and related activities. You should:

• understand or seek clarification about expectations for academic integrity in this course (including no cheating, plagiarism and inappropriate collaboration)
• neither give nor receive unauthorized aid on examinations or other course work that is used by the instructor as the basis of grading.
• take responsibility to monitor academic dishonesty in any form and to report it to the instructor or other appropriate official for action.

Disruptive Classroom Behavior: student conduct which disrupts the learning process will not be tolerated and may lead to disciplinary action and/or removal from class.

Computers: At California State University, Fresno, computers and communications links to remote resources are recognized as being integral to the education and research experience. Every student is required to have his/her own computer or have other personal access to a workstation (including a modem and a printer) with all the recommended software. The minimum and recommended standards for the workstations and software, which may vary by academic major, are updated periodically and are available from Information Technology Services or the University Bookstore. In the curriculum and class assignments, students are presumed to have 24-hour access to a computer workstation and the necessary communication links to the University's information resources.
