POBII is a lecture course presented as two 80-minute lectures per week. This class contains both a lecture and separate lab component. You must be registered in both the lecture and the separate lab and attend both. It is suggested that you keep abreast of the material and study after each class as opposed to trying to “cram” prior to the test. The student should be familiar with all of this information for exams. It is strongly recommended that students read associated text chapters before the first class meeting of the week
Exams: During the semester there will be 3 in-class exams and 1 cumulative final exam.

Class attendance policy:
Students should attend every lecture. It will be very difficult to pass this class without participating in the lecture series. I will announce which chapters we will cover for the following week. I will not necessarily follow the order of the book. Additionally, I will announce tests dates in class once I feel I have covered enough material. It is the practice of MSU to allow students to participate in university-sponsored events, even when those events cause them to be absent from class. Students participating in university-sponsored events will be given reasonable opportunities to make up missed assignments and exams. It is up to the student to notify the professor that they will miss an assignment due to a sponsored event BEFORE the event occurs.
