Course Requirements

Exams

There will be four exams: the first three in the Pinnacle Testing Center and the fourth one in class.

Some exams may have two parts: one with calculators, one without. Any scientific calculator is fine. If you want to use a graphing one - it will have to be checked out from the Testing Center.

Exam corrections will be allowed for the first three tests.
