GRADING: There will be three (3) exams, including the final. Each exam will consist of a combination of 40 multiple choice questions from the text, and may consist of one or two short answer questions. I “may” choose to give a pop quiz prior to an exam that is worth 10 points. If so, this will count as 10 points toward your exam, meaning that when I give the exam it will only be worth 90 points. I will then add your pop quiz to your exam grade to equal one complete exam grade. In addition, there is a paper assignment due on or before Nov. 26th. The details and helpful suggestions for the paper assignment are contained in a separate handout. The exams and paper are given equal weight in calculating your grade.
If you miss an exam, you may take an all essay make-up exam on the last day of classes, December 7th, at 3:00 in this room only when you provide positive proof of illness (a doctor’s written excuse specifying exactly which days you were unable to attend); presents a written excuse from a physician for a dependent child’s illness; has a death in the immediate family; or written proof of other emergency such as an official university excuse.
Grades will be determined by the following:
*There “may” be opportunity for bonus points
Grades will be determined by the following scale:
A = 90-100
B = 80-89
C = 70-79
D = 60-69
F = below 60
No late papers accepted.
You will find a high correlation between attendance and class grade! A good portion of each exam will focus on lecture material that is not in the book. In addition, in-class exercises and/or pop quizzes will provide bonus points. Therefore, good attendance is a necessity. YOU WILL BE DROPPED IF YOU HAVE MORE THAN 3 (THREE) UNEXCUSED ABSENCES. I may drop a student for excessive excused absences as well, at my discretion. If your combined excused and unexcused absences add up to more than 3 (three) absences, I will deduct 5 points from your final grade for each additional absence.
An absence is considered officially excused ONLY if a student:
