Student Evaluation System:
You will be expected to preread the textbook sections prior to class. Every
other oddnumbered exercise
plus any others that may be required to achieve mastery should be completed as
homework. If you choose
to be graded on a P/NC basis (P = 70+%), you need to notify me in writing no
later than our third class
session (January 14th).
ABSOLUTELY NO MAKEUP tests will be given unless
prearranged.
ANY CHEATING will result in a course grade of NC.
Bonus points will awarded on bonus quizzes ONLY during the
class in which they are offered –
NO MAKEUP QUIZZES. Your grade will be based on your test/quiz score
performance using
the percentages as follows:
Participation  100 points  
Test on Chapters 12  100 points  90% or more => A 
Test on Chapters 34  100 points  80 – 89% => B 
Test on Chapters 56  100 points  7079% => C 
Test on Chapters 78  100 points  6069% => D 
FINAL EXAM  200 points  < 60% => NC 
Total  700 points + MANY other points for misc. quizzes, WebAssingn, and projects. 
Attendance Policy:
Poor course performance has been linked to poor class attendance. Thus it is
of utmost importance that you
make every effort to attend every class to ensure that you will fully understand
all concepts as they are
explained. It is quite evident that I cannot possibly provide you with quality
instruction if you are not
present.
