Zoom Class Etiquette:
Policy on Cheating and Plagiarism: Plagiarism and cheating will not be tolerated in any math course at Amarillo College.
Cheating includes, but is not limited to, copying from another student’s paper or using any unauthorized sources of information while taking an exam or quiz. On the first day of class, you will be required to sign and date a Course Contract. Included in the contract is the following statement: "I fully understand that if I cheat, or attempt to cheat, on any test I will receive an automatic “F” in the course. This grade will go on my permanent transcript and cannot be removed. Cheating includes the use of cell phone calculators, the illegal use of books, notes, cell phones, and copying. Cheating also includes helping, or attempting to help, other students to cheat on a test." You will not be allowed to take your tests until this contract is signed and on file in your instructor's office. Please Note: NO CELL PHONES in the Testing Room. If we see your cell phone out AT ANY TIME, FOR ANY REASON, while in the testing room, YOU WILL RECEIVE an "F" for the course!
Grading Policy: Your grade (90-100% A, 80-89% B, 70-79% C, 60-69% D, less than 60 F) will be determined using the following weights:
Percentage of Total Grade
Lecture Notes (No drops)
Online Homework (Drop 2 lowest grades)
Online Quizzes (Drop 2 lowest grades)
Major Exams (4 Exams, no drops)
Lecture Notes: Prior to attending class each day, you will be required to watch lecture videos and complete guided notes printed from Blackboard. Notes will be submitted on Google Classroom for a grade. (Take a clear picture of each page of your notes using the CamScanner app. Convert the pictures of your work to a single pdf document, and upload to Google Classroom. Don't worry! I will walk you through this process step by step on the first week of class.) You will receive a 100 if your notes are complete, a 50 if anything is left blank, and a zero if you do not submit notes. Due dates and times are posted on the class schedule in Blackboard and also on Google Classroom. Five points per day will be deducted for late notes.
Online Homework: Homework will be completed online using the MyMathLab website. Help buttons will be available for each problem in MyMathLab, and you may rework problems multiple times until you get the correct answer. Also note that you will be required to submit hand-written work on Google Classroom to accompany a few sections of your MyMathLab homework. You may continue working on all the assignments for the week until Sundays at midnight. MyMathLab due dates will be posted on the class schedule in Blackboard and also on the MyMathLab website. No late homework will be accepted.
Online Quizzes: After each section of homework in MyMathLab is completed, you may proceed to take a 15 minute timed quiz on MyMathLab. The questions on the quiz will resemble questions from the homework, but the help options will not be available on quizzes in MyMathLab as they were in the homework. Quizzes, like the homework, will be automatically graded on MyMathLab and sent to the gradebook in Blackboard. Due dates for the quizzes correspond to due dates for the homework. No late quizzes will be accepted.
Exams: Four (4) major exams and a mandatory comprehensive final exam will be given outside of class meeting time in the Math Testing Lab. Exams must be taken during the time frame provided in the weekly schedule, and no late exams will be accepted. If the final exam grade is higher than the lowest major exam grade, the final exam will replace that lowest grade and also count for the final exam grade.
Mandatory Tutoring: If you score below a 70 on any unit exam, you will be required to complete one hour of mandatory tutoring in the Math Adademic Success Center. Tutoring may be completed on campus in or remotely by joining https://zoom.us/j/541139851. Use the Meeting ID: 541 139 851.
Extra Credit: Extra credit will not be given.
Attendance: Attendance will be taken every day at the beginning of each remote class, so please be on time. If you are late or you leave the meeting early without prior permission, you will be counted absent for the day. I do not record remote class meetings, so you will need to contact me to find out important information if you miss class.
The deadline to drop this course is Thursday, August 5 2021. To complete the drop process, you must submit your drop form to me by noon on August 5 and submit it to the Registrar that day. If you stop attending class and your average drops below a 60 due to missed assignments and you do not officially drop the course by this deadline, you will receive an F for the course.
Note: Late drops will NOT be given under any circumstance.
