MATH 282 –Fall 2014

Study Guide for EXAM #3

EXAM #3 will be given on Thursday, November 20. It will include material from Sections
3.4-3.6, 4.1-4.3 and 6.1-6.2(?).


MAKEUP POLICY: If you know in advance that you have to miss a quiz or test, you can
make arrangements with me to take the quiz or test before it is given in class. Otherwise,
no makeup will be given. Refer to the makeup policy on the syllabus.
No student will be permitted to take more than one makeup test.

ACADEMIC HONESTY: All students are expected to do their own work on quizzes and
tests. Students are expected to observe the following rules during any test or quiz.

Use pencils and erasers.

Closed book Exam. No extra papers. No cell phones, ipods, or any other electronic
devices (other than a calculator). Any student who is found to have such a device
turned on during a test will receive a grade of zero on that test.

Students may not speak to or share materials with other students.

Students may not share calculators with other students.

Students should remain in the room during the entire test.
Appropriate penalties will be imposed for breaches of academic honesty.


Laplace Formulas Sheet is allowed if Chapter 6 is included

cheat sheet(only 1 side) is allowed.

If you have documentation showing that you require extended time for tests, you
must discuss this with me at least two days before the scheduled test date.
