Gateway Exam - Wednesday January 25

Gateway Exam: A gateway exam on integration will be given in class during the second week, on Wednesday January 25. Following the in class gateway exam, there will be an open period for three weeks during which the gateway exam may be repeated (as often as needed) in the Mathematics Mac Lab (MSB 203) or in the Calculus Center. Practice versions of the gateway exam may be taken online. These practice versions are from the same test bank as the actual exams and will be graded online.

For the Gateway Exam 70% without partial credit is required to pass. Failure to pass the Gateway Exam with a score of 70% or higher will lower the course grade by one full letter grade.

Calculators are not allowed for the gateway exam.

There will be no makeup given for students who miss an exam or quiz. If a student misses a midterm exam or quiz because of justified and well documented circumstances, her/his grade will be prorated (the other elements of the coursework will be fairly weighted and used to replace the missing grade). Students are permitted to miss two midterm exams only under dire and documented circumstances.
