Course Syllabus Developing Good Study Habits


  1. Read these documents immediately. On Wednesday I will give you copies to sign and return to me.

  2. You should have all electronic devices (cell phones, i-pods, MP3 players, ear-buds, etc.) completely turned off and stowed before coming to class. Recording devices are strictly prohibited. Using electronic devices during class without my permission may result in their being confiscated and academic discipline.

  3. Although I teach multiple sections of MATH-305, university policy requires that you attend only the section for which you are registered. Consequently, you may not "float" from one section to another as a matter of convenience.

  4. Kettering University has a site (on-campus) license that makes Maple available on most PCs and workstations on campus.

  5. If you miss a class, you should obtain copies of the lecture notes from a classmate.

  6. How much should a college student study?


Assignments will be posted below AS we cover the material.

  1. Do all the examples in the first Maple tutorial entitled Basics. October 6
    1. Do not use the shortcut menu buttons in the left panel of Maple. Rather, manually type the commands as they appear in the Maple examples.
    2. You should work all assigned Maple examples immediately to help you prepare for the programming assignments.
    3. There may be Maple related questions on exams (see the course policy).

    Kettering has made Maple amply available on many PCs throughout the AB.

    Read Sections 0.1, 0.4, and 0.6. October 6
    (Because you should always read sections as we cover the material, normally I do not post reading assignments.)

Remember that:

  1. You are responsible for successfully completing all assigned problems in all your courses.
  2. The exams may include problems similar to these assignments and lecture examples and may include questions about Maple.
  3. We must maintain a steady pace to cover the material that constitutes Math-305. If you have difficulty with a section, be sure to see me for help immediately.
  4. No matter how simple a topic appears when you see my examples or read the text, you will almost certainly have difficulty completing an exam if you do not practice the examples and do the assignments beforehand.
