Course Requirements: The course will consist of a combination of teacher demonstrations with student participation in discussions, individual, and group work.
1. There will be seven Homework Quizzes during the quarter based upon the suggested problems. No make-ups will be given, unless arranged in advance. Students should work problems in addition to those suggested. [The lowest quiz score will be dropped to compute the course grade.]
2. There will be three in-class Tests. Note the dates; no make-ups will be given, unless arranged in advance. [If higher, one-half of the score on the final exam replaces the lowest test to compute the course grade.]
3. There will be a two-hour Final Examination on Tuesday, June 24, from 6:15 to 8:15 pm.
Any student missing the final exam will fail the course; no excuses are acceptable.
Grading: Quizzes (6 X possible 25 points each) 150
Tests (3 X possible 50 points each) 150
Final Exam (1 X possible 100 points) 100
Course grades will reflect the following percentage range of total scores:
A = C = F = below 50% (below 200)
B = D =
Grades of B+, B-, and C+ will be used as the final distribution of grades warrants; A- will not be used.
Attendance: Regular attendance is expected. A student who misses any class during the first two weeks of the quarter may be dropped from the course. Inform the instructor, in advance, of any necessary absences; telephone the instructor and leave a message if an emergency arises. Note, however, that it is the student's responsibility to formally "drop" the course. Protect your academic record by observing these deadlines:
20 April to drop with no record 2 May for P/NP option 30 May to drop with a "W"
