Course Evaluation: Suggested homework problems will be assigned but not graded. Instead, the material in the homework will be evaluated by a variety of methods: announced/pop/take-home quizzes, short student presentations (board work), and student participation in small groups. The homework/quizzes/presentations will count as 15% of the final grade. There will also be four In-class Exams which will each count as 15% of the final grade. Finally, there will be a cumulative Final Exam which will count as 25% of the final grade.
Test Dates: Please note that the following test dates are tentative and may be changed (except for the scheduled date of the final). Any change will be announced in a timely manner.
