Extra Credit assignments for Math 118
Fall 2007

If you choose to do one of the following extra credit projects, you can improve your grade by up to 5%. Note that this isn't enough to change an F to a passing grade, but is enough to move a C- to a C or a B+ to an A-.

Each of these assignments should take a fair amount of effort, about equivalent to writing a paper in another class. The amount of extra credit given will depend on how well you do the project. Projects are due by the time of the final (you can give them to me before final, or at the final, but not after.)

A reminder:
Plagiarism is simply the use of others' words and/or ideas without clearly acknowledging their source. As students, you are learning about other people's ideas in your course texts, your instructors' lectures, in-class discussions, and when doing your own research. When you incorporate those words and ideas into your own work, it is of the utmost importance that you give credit where it is due. Plagiarism, intentional or unintentional, is considered academic dishonesty and all instances will be reported to the Academic Judiciary. To avoid plagiarism, you must give the original author credit whenever you use another person's ideas, opinions, drawings, or theories as well as any facts or any other pieces of information that are not common knowledge. Additionally quotations of another person's actual spoken or written words; or a close paraphrasing of another person's spoken or written words must also be referenced. Accurately citing all sources and putting direct quotations of even a few key words in quotation marks are required.
