TR 12:30-1:50 P.M.
Class Requirements: This class contains both a lecture and separate lab component to it. You must be registered in both the lecture and lab and attend both.
Lecture Exams: There will be three, equally-weighted major exams (including the final exam) that will each be worth 25% of your overall grade for the class. The final exam will NOT be comprehensive but will cover all of the material since the previous exam. Exams will usually contain various types of testing formats (i.e. multiple choice, matching, true/false, fill in the blank, listing, drawing/labeling, and short answer).
Course Grading: The following is a breakdown of your final course grade:
Test #1 =25%
Test #2 =25%
Final Exam =25%
Lecture Grade total =75% + Lab Grade =25% = Total Course Grade 100%
The grading scale used to determine your letter grade for the course is as follows:
A = 90-100%
B = 80-89%
C = 70-79%
D = 60-69%
F = below 60%
Make-up exams will be administered ONLY FOR EXTENUATING CIRCUMSTANCES OR UNIVERSITY-AUTHORIZED ABSENCES. You MUST present a valid university excuse to make up a missed lecture exam. If a make-up exam is granted, it should be taken immediately (i.e. before exams are passed back to the class). DO NOT MISS AN EXAM!!!! Academic honesty must be practiced at all times.
Class Attendance: You are expected to attend all classes. A lot of material is presented in each class period, which makes it easy to fall behind if a class is missed. If you miss a class, it is YOUR responsibility to get class notes from classmates or handouts from your instructor. Students with excessive absences usually result in failure of the course and may be dropped by the instructor. Students should refer to the current MSU Handbook and Activities Calendar for university policy on academic dishonesty, class attendance, student rights and activities. For example, see page 39 for information on class attendance policy and page 4 for the student honor creed.
