Alternate Exam Requests:
If you have a university excused absence or a university-scheduled class conflict with uniform examinations, please contact me as soon as possible, but at least 10 days before the exam , so that an alternate exam can be arranged for you.

MA 193
In addition to the 4 hours of credit for MA 113, the department offers one additional hour of credit as MA 193 on a pass/fail basis. You will pass MA 193 if you have no more than 2 unexcused absences during MA 113 recitations and you pass MA 113. If you fail MA 113 or have 3 or more unexcused absences in recitation, you will fail MA 193. Your section number for MA 193 must be the same as your section number for MA 113. If you drop or change sections of MA 113, please make sure to also drop or change sections of MA 193. It is your responsibility to do this if you change sections. If you do not change the section of MA 193 you may receive a failing grade for MA 193 because you are not on the proper class roll.

Attendance and Classroom Behavior:
We will take attendance regularly during lecture with sign-up sheets. Each student will be allowed two unexcused absences. Students who miss lecture and would like to request an excused absence should speak with me within one week of the absence. Students who miss an assignment for illness or other reason and wish to be excused from the assignment should speak with me to discuss their situation. The use of cell phones, pagers, laptops, tablets, iPods, and other similar electronic devises is prohibited during class.

If you are having difficulties in the course for any reason please contact me as soon as possible. Please make use of office hours, the Mathskeller and the Study. We are here to help you and want to see you succeed. I advise all students to read the specified sections in the textbook prior to lecture.
