This is an intensive, fast-paced summer course. Students are expected to spend a minimum of 2 to 3 hours outside of class each day reading the notes/book, solving homework problems, and preparing for the exams.

Homework and Quizzes

Homework will be assigned for each lesson and will be due on each exam day. Students are responsible for solving all the problems assigned, showing all work in a neat and orderly manner. Simply giving answers without showing work will receive no credit. Homework will be graded on neatness, completeness, and correctness. Late homework will be accepted but will receive a maximum of half credit.

There will be three (3) quizzes given throughout the summer session. Quiz problems will be based on the homework and class examples. The lowest quiz score will be dropped. There will be no make-up quizzes under any circumstances.


There will be two (2) midterm exams given during the summer session. The lowest midterm exam score will be replaced by the final exam score, if the latter is higher. There will be no make-up midterm exams under any circumstances.

A mandatory comprehensive final exam will be given at the end of the summer session. The final exam must be taken at the officially scheduled time. Any student who misses the final exam will receive a grade of F for the course.

Late Submission Policy: All the exams and quizzes will be scanned and submitted in Canvas. It is the student’s responsibility to ensure that the exam or quiz is submitted on time. A penalty will be applied to the exam score for a late submission: 10% deducted for up to 10 minutes late; 20% deducted for 10 minutes to 20 minutes late. Any submission more than 20 minutes late will receive no points.

Grading Policy

The course grade will be determined by the following criteria:

Attendance Policy

Students are expected to attend all classes, to be on time and to stay for the entire class period. Any student who misses more than one (1) class during the first week or more than three (3) classes before the withdraw deadline may be dropped by the instructor. If a student decides not to continue with the course, it is the student’s responsibility to officially drop the course. Failure to do so may result in a grade of F for the course.

Academic Honesty Policy

Students are responsible for keeping themselves informed of the De Anza College Policy on Academic Integrity ( Cheating will not be tolerated and may result in receiving a zero on the exam or an F for the course and being reported to the Dean of Students Office for possible disciplinary action.
