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

                                                                                                                                    400      points

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"
