Math Study Center Information: The Math Study Center (located in Communication B-014) is a great place for students to work on math, WHETHER OR NOT THEY NEED HELP. We are not a tutoring center in the traditional sense. We provide a comfortable place and a supportive atmosphere for students to come together and study, in groups or individually. We have on staff a number of tutors (both graduate student TA's and advanced undergraduates) who will sit down with students and answer questions to help them get unstuck. We do not provide long blocks of uninterrupted one-on-one tutoring. Textbooks, calculators and other study materials are available to be checked out for in-room use.
Grading: Your grade will consist of:
Attendance: We will not take attendance during lectures and quiz sections. However, you are responsible for the information covered in all class sections. In particular, your TA will be presenting some material that will not be covered during lecture.
Homework: Homework assignments will be assigned and collected via Webassign. Homework will generally be due at 11:00 p.m. on Tuesdays and Thursdays.
Exams: You will be allowed to use one 8.5x11 sheet of handwritten notes and a TI-30X IIS scientific calculator for the exams. The TI-30X IIS is the only model of calculator that will be allowed on exams. Other electronic devices (e.g., cell phones, laptops, tablet computers) are also prohibited. You may not share a calculator nor a note sheet with another student on an exam.
Resources for Students with Disabilities: Your experience in this class is important to me. If you have already established accommodations with Disability Resources for Students (DRS), please communicate your approved accommodations to me at your earliest convenience so we can discuss your needs in this course.
If you have not yet established services through DRS, but have a temporary health condition or permanent disability that requires accommodations (conditions include but not limited to; mental health, attention-related, learning, vision, hearing, physical or health impacts), you are welcome to contact DRS at 206-543-8924 or firstname.lastname@example.org. DRS offers resources and coordinates reasonable accommodations for students with disabilities and/or temporary health conditions. Reasonable accommodations are established through an interactive process between you, your instructor(s) and DRS. It is the policy and practice of the University of Washington to create inclusive and accessible learning environments consistent with federal and state law.
