There will be two components to your homework: a paper and pencil portion (PP) and an online portion (MML).  Both components are worth equal amounts in the overall grade calculations.  See below for more information.

PP homework will be assigned from the text on a weekly basis and will be collected most Tuesdays at the beginning of class (no late PP HW will be accepted). You will earn a total of 10 points for each PP assignment: up to 4 points for completeness of the entire PP assignment and up to 6 points for correctness (three problems will be selected and graded, 2 pts each).

 

When handing in HW, be sure to adhere to the following guidelines:

  • Use standard size paper (8.5" x 11") with no fringed edges.  Write your name on each page and staple pages together if there are more than one.
  • Write neatly using a pencil.  Do not cross out errors---erase them.  If you find yourself erasing extensively, stop and start again on a fresh page.  If you must use a pen, do not scribble things out.
  • Number your problems clearly and indicate what section they are from.
  • Circle or box your final answers.
  • Graphs must be drawn with a straight edge and axes must be labeled and scaled.  
  • When doing word problems, you must define any variables you introduce and state your final answer in a complete sentence that includes units.  Problem solving steps must be shown clearly for all problems.  I will not give full credit unless I see your work.  Simply writing the answer is not enough.

 

NOTE:  You will earn a 0 on any PP HW assignment that is too hard to read;  or if you seem to have mindlessly copied another student's homework;  or if you allowed another student to mindelssly copy your homework.  Please check your answers to the odd-numbered problems in the back of the book.  Feel free to ask questions in class or during my office hours about any problems that you have questions on.  

  

MML homework will be assigned through MyMathLab on a weekly basis and will be due most Mondays at midnight (unless otherwise indicated). You will need to register for my MML Math 098 course at http://www.pearsonmylabandmastering.com/northamerica/mymathlab/.  The course ID for my MML course is hurley31376.  You will need both my course ID and a registration code that comes with the text you purchased.  Here is a step-by-step student registration instruction sheet.  If you would like to check out the MML course before paying for it, look for the link in the registration process that says "temporary access".  This should give you access to MML for about 2-3 weeks before you have to pay for it.  When doing HW in MML, you will be given (in general) three tries to complete a question correctly.  After three tries, MML will give you the correct answer.  If you then click on "similar exercise", you will be given a new (but very similar) problem to try again, with another three tries to get it correct.  You can continue clicking on "similar exercise" as many times as you would like.  As long as you eventually complete the problem correctly, you will be given FULL CREDIT for the problem.   

 

I will drop your lowest PP homework grade and lowest MML homework grade when computing grades at the end of the quarter. In addition to the PP and MML problems, worksheets may be assigned and collected as part of your homework grade.  These worksheets, along with their due dates, will be posted in the table above.  Please note that some students may find it helpful or even necessary to do more problems from the book than I assign. You must be honest with yourself to determine whether you sufficiently understand the material, and if you don’t, read and practice more. To do well in this class it is essential that you do the homework daily. I expect you to spend about 10 hours each week on math homework, reading and studying.
