Calculator: Any calculator may be used during specified times. However, the use of calculators on most quizzes and the tests will be prohibited.
Course Evaluation: Suggested homework problems will be assigned but not graded. Instead, the material in the homework will be evaluated by announced/pop/take-home quizzes, short student presentations (board work), and student participation in small groups. The homework/quizzes/presentations will count as 20% of the final grade. There will also be three In-class Exams which will each count as 20% of the final grade. Finally, there will be a cumulative Final Exam which will count as 20% of the final grade.
Letter Grades: The final letter grades will be determined by the following scale:
A --- 90% and above
B --- 80% - 89%
C --- 70% - 79%
D --- 60% - 69%
F --- 59% and below
