Understanding Sheet

This sheet highlights important points for the student to understand prior to taking this course. Please sign this sheet to indicate that you fully understand what is expected of you. If you need to discuss any of the points on this sheet, please see Dr. Cohlmia.

I have read the syllabus and understand how my semester grade will be determined.

I know I can obtain help on concepts covered in class during the professor’s office hours or in the Math Lab.

I understand that there are no make-ups for missed quizzes.

I understand that the dropped quizzes and exams are there to accommodate days when I cannot attend class either due to illness or other reasons.

I understand that I am not to be a distraction in class. (No cell phones, no pagers, no chatting, no reading newspapers, etc.) All cell phones should be off prior to entering the classroom.

I understand that it is my responsibility to keep track of my progress in class and to seek advice from my professor if I find myself not performing to my personal expectations.

I understand that there are no extra credit assignments offered in this class.

I understand that all assignments to be turned in and all quizzes/exams should be written in pencil. I understand the Dr. Cohlmia will not grade any assignments written in ink. I understand that it is not Dr. Cohlmia’s responsibility to provide a pencil for me.

I understand that all assignments to be turned in and all quizzes/exams should be stapled, and I understand that it is not Dr. Cohlmia’s responsibility to provide a stapler on the day that assignments are due.

I know the date of the final exam, and I understand that I am not allowed to take it before this date. I will promptly inform my family and friends of this date in anticipation that they might buy me an airline ticket to go home at the end of the term without regard to my schedule of final exams. I understand that if I do find myself in this dilemma, I will have to make a choice between a zero on the final exam or rearranging my travel plans.

If I am an athlete participating in OC sports, I understand that I should provide the professor a list of all scheduled absences due to team travel, games, etc. as soon as possible.

I understand that if I have an alternate learning pattern and require special arrangements for testing, quizzes, etc., I will notify the professor at the beginning of the semester.

I understand that each OC math class has certain requirements for enrollment such as certain standardized test scores and prerequisites. I have checked these and verified that I am able to be in this math class.

I know where Dr. Cohlmia’s website is located, and I understand that I can find information about this course, including the syllabus, on this website.

I understand that a scientific calculator is required for this course and that a cell phone is not a scientific calculator.

I understand that if I miss class, it is my responsibility to get the notes from a classmate. Dr. Cohlmia will not provide the notes.

 

I have carefully read the course syllabus and the understanding sheet for Dr. Cohlmia’s math class, and I have been given an opportunity to ask questions about the course and its requirements.
