Educational Philosophy: Delivery of coursework will be done via examples, quizzes, and examinations.
Learning Outcomes: Core Learning Outcomes
Link to Class RubricClass Assessment: Assessment will be done via labs, quizzes, and examinations.
Three Exams @ 100 points each: 300 points
Attendance (See below) 100 points
Quizzes(See below) 100 points
Final Exam 100 points
· Grades for this course will be based upon taking the total points earned divided by the total points possible. Your percentage will result in the following letter grade:
89.5% - 100.0% A 79.5% - 89.4% B 69.5% - 79.4% C
59.5% - 69.4% D 0.0% - 59.4% F
· Mr. Wiemann does NOT accept late homework, labs or quizzes.
· Your attendance is required for the full duration of class. To help motivate students towards this goal, up to 10 points will be earned for Week 1 – Week 8’s attendance in each class meeting. If a student is absent (excused or otherwise), 0 points will be earned for that class period. If a student leaves early, partial points will be awarded for that class period.
· Quizzes will be calculated by taking the total points earned on quizzes divided by the total points possible in quizzes and multiplying by 100. Any decimal part of an integer will be rounded to the nearest whole number (i.e. 93.5 will round to 94).
· Quizzes, Labs, Notes, and Solution Sets will be required to be printed by the student for use. The website will be demonstrated during the first nite of class.
· Extra credit, if offered, will be at the discretion of Mr. Wiemann.
· The final exam for this course is comprehensive and is required to be taken.
· The only dumb question is the one that is not asked. If you have an issue about the course, I would encourage you to use the methods of communication that I have (i.e. E-mail, voice mail, before or after class).
Late Submission of Course Materials: Mr. Wiemann does NOT allow makeup exams, quizzes, and labs. The student is responsible for submission of assignments on the Park Online site on or before the due date scheduled. The instructor is NOT responsible for personal issues and/or electronic issues (i.e. personal Internet Service Provider not working) in making the deadline of an assignment.
It is the student’s responsibility to take an exam on or before the scheduled date.
If the score on your final exam is greater than the score earned on one of your class exams, I will replace your lowest exam score (not including quizzes or labs) with the score earned on the final exam. For this reason, it becomes an integral part of the student’s responsibility to be there on an exam day.
