Grading: Possible Points

Final Exam @ 200 points (To be discussed!) 200

A seating chart will be prepared and attendance will be checked. If you are not present when roll is checked, you will be marked absent. Students are expected to attend class, listen carefully, and be prepared at all times to participate in class discussions of assigned material. A student with four (4) or more unauthorized absences may be dropped from class by the instructor. See the MSU Student Handbook for University class attendance policy.
Missed Exam Policy: If, because of a truly unavoidable situation, you are absolutely not able to take an exam at the scheduled time/date, it is your responsibility to talk to me well in advance to ask to take the exam early. If a legitimate, last minute emergency occurs, it is your responsibility to contact me before the exam begins. If I am not available in my office, you must leave a voice mail or e-mail before the exam begins in order to receive any consideration for a make-up exam. For any exam missed, you will receive the grade of zero (0) on that exam.
Academic Integrity: Academic dishonesty will not be tolerated! See the “Student Honor Creed” in the MSU Undergraduate Catalog.
Syllabus Change Policy: This syllabus is a guide for the course and is subject to change.
