Note: the final exam is a significant component of the grade. There is a comprehensive set of problems assigned at the end of the term designed to have you review all the major concepts of the course and to prepare you for the final. If you can successfully complete the comprehensive problem set without using the book or any other aids, then you are ready for the final. If you cannot, then you are not ready for the final and will likely not be successful in passing the class. Do not wait until the last week of the term to understand the material, it doesn't work. 

If you need tutoring check out http://deanza.edu/studentsuccess/

 

Policy on Copying and Cheating: Students who submit the work of others as their own or cheat on exams or other assignments will receive a failing grade in the course and will be reported to college authorities.

Grading Policies: If you sign up for the course and complete the orientation IN CATALYST you are enrolled. If you do not complete the orientation you are dropped as a no-show. If you do not take the midterm examination you will want to withdraw from the course because passing is not possible without the midterm points. 

Once you have indicated your enrollment in the class, it is your responsibility to monitor your enrollment and drop yourself if you believe you cannot pass the class. You must access Catalyst and Cengage at least once a week, and it is your responsibility to notify the instructor of any issues you encounter. Other than failing to complete the orientation, it is entirely the student's responsibility to drop himself or herself in accordance with college guidelines and dates.

Incomplete grades are only available under the following conditions: The student has done ALL of the work in the course and cannot take the final exam because of an emergency (verifiable illness, family death, car accident etc). If the issue arises prior to the date for withdrawal, then the student WILL TAKE A W GRADE. If it occurs after the withdrawal date and ALL work in the course has been completed and a verifiable emergency has taken place, then an incomplete grade can be given. Please note, these are exceedingly rare. 

If you wish to take this course as a pass/no pass option it is entirely your responsibility to sign up for the option within the requisite time outlined on the DeAnza website. The instructor has no authority or ability to change a graded course to a pass/no pass course; it is entirely the responsibility of the student. 

Once you have indicated your enrollment in the class and completed the orientations, it is your responsibility to keep up with the work and drop the course if you determine you cannot keep up.

If you do not take the midterm exam, it is STRONGLY RECOMMENDED THAT YOU DROP THE COURSE WITH A W BECAUSE IT IS VIRTUALLY IMPOSSIBLE TO PASS THE COURSE. Please note, enrollment is YOUR RESPONSIBILITY, ADD AND DROP DATES ARE AVAILABLE ONLINE AND IN THE DEANZA SCHEDULE. Please note DeAnza is very strict with the withdrawal date policy.

You may access your final grades through the Star System [408-777-9394 or 650-917-0509], and the Internet [https://regserv.fhda.edu/da-grades.html]
