Library Guide for Dr. Steward's MATH 1350 | Fundamentals of Mathematics I


Grading:  Grades will be based on the following:

  • Attendance 10%
  • Projects 30% 
  • Chapter Exams 60%

Grading will be awarded as follows based on the number of points received:

  • 90% | A
  • 80% | B
  • 70% | C
  • 60% | D
  • 59% or below | F

I do not give extra credit.  In extreme circumstances, I will allow a student to make up a test through SSC library but contact must be made prior to the in-class test.



  • Attendance will be daily as it constitutes a portion of your grade.  Unexcused absences count twich that of excused.  Please notify me and let me know when and why you won't be in class.


  • You need to have a scientific calculator for this class to facilitate computations.  Graphing calculators may be used as well.


  • Students arriving to class after roll has been taken will receive an absence.  Tardiness disrupts the whole class and will not be tolerated.  Those students with chronic tardiness will be dropped from the class.

Personal Needs

  • Please attend to your personal needs before class begins.  This includes bathroom, supplies, refreshments, etc.  No cell phones or beepers should go off in class unless you are a member of an emergency team.  It is disruptive to  myself and your peers to leave class.  A scheduled break will be given in the night class.

Cell Phone

  • Cell phone usage is forbidden during class unless you are a member of an emergency medical or firefighter team.  This includes text messaging.  Please turn all cell phone or paging devices off during class and put them away.  Students using cell phones will be asked to leave class once, and then dropped from the class for being disruptive.  Cell phones may not be used for calculators as they are insufficient for this class.
