Learning Outcomes: Core Learning Outcomes
Class Assessment: Students will be evaluated based on two examinations, homework, course project and classroom participation.
Students may earn a possible 400 points in this course. The first exam, which covers Chapters 1-4, is worth 100 points. The second/final exam will be worth 150 points and cover all chapters (weighted more heavily towards Chapters 5-8). Two homework assignments will be collected randomly, which will be worth 30 points. Classroom participation will earn the student up to 20 points. The course project will be worth 100 points.
90% - 100% A 80% - 89% B 70% - 79% C 60% - 69% D Below 60% F Note: Grading on the curve at the end of the semester will be at instructor's discretion and will most likely not occur.
Late Submission of Course Materials: If a student cannot submit course materials on time, he or she must contact instructor prior to deadline. Late work, if accepted, is subject to point loss due to tardiness. Students should make every effort to take exams on time as schedule will be posted several weeks in advance. If a student cannot take the test, a make-up exam must be scheduled prior to the test date. Make-up exams are at the discretion of the instructor and should be avoided if at all possible.
Classroom Rules of Conduct: To the benefit of all students, everyone is encouraged to listen and participate in an appropriate manner. Those who disrupt the learning of their fellow students will be asked to leave the classroom.
