Penny Marsh

The following information comes from the named instructor and should describe characteristics general to courses as taught by this instructor. Individual sections of specific courses will deviate from this description in some respects.

Class Format

Class is conducted using guided notes and lecture. Unannounced quizzes (6 total) are at the beginning of class. Otherwise, homework questions are answered the first part of the class period.

Resource Use

Book: Extensive
Calculator: Limited
Software: None

Calculators should be brought to class every session, but will not always be used. They are allowed on tests.


The grade is composed of the top 5 out of 6 quizzes, 4 unit tests, and a final exam. The quizzes cannot be made up. A missed test must be made up before the next class period, but in case of an emergency, the final exam score can replace one missed unit test.

Homework Policy

Homework is not graded as such, but in-class quizzes may ask you to work particular problems from the homework without using the book. However, completion of homework is essential to success in the class.

Attendance Policy

Attendance is of the utmost importance. However, points are not added or subtracted for good or bad attendance.
