Information for MATH 150 students in sections 16, 17, 18, and
Instructor: Peter Salamon
Calculator policy: Each student is expected to have a
calculator capable of graphing functions. The calculator will be needed for
some of the quizzes and examinations. It will also be needed for some of
the homework problems.
Policy regarding recitation sections (Tuesday & Thursday):
These sessions will discuss and supplement homework problems. They will also
include quizzes on the same material. Your grade will be computed with and
without these quizzes and the maximum of the two grades will be given. This
means that taking (or not taking) these quizzes cannot hurt your grade.
Tutoring: The math department and the college of engineering both
offer free tutoring for Math 150. The Math department tutoring is offered
in BAM 248 according to the schedule shown at
The college of engineering offers the tutoring through the MEP/MSP program.
They take a serious commitment of four hours per week -- any student not
meeting this commitment is dropped from the program. For further information
In addition tutors can be hired privately. The Mathematics Department Office
keeps a list of students willing to tutor. There are also countless advertisements
on bulletin boards around campus.
