Learning Outcomes: Core Learning Outcomes
Link to Class RubricClass Assessment: We will use a variety of assessment instruments: homework, attendance, discussion, and exams.
Grading: Homework is 10 points per assignment 120 Attendance 10 points per class 80 Mid-Term Examination 100 Final Examination 100 Total possible points 400 A = 90 - 100% (360 points or higher) B = 80 - 89 (320 points to 359) C = 70 - 79 (280 points to 319) D = 60 - 69 (240 points to 279) F = 59 and below Any form of cheating or two consecutive unexcused absences will result in a letter grade of F. The unsexcused absences will result in an administrative withdrawl. An absence is defined as not being present for the entire class.
Late Submission of Course Materials: There will be no late submission of course material. Upon entering the classroom, learners will drop off their assigned problems with the instructor and use a copy to work with during the review. Since we do review all homework and since the answers will be revealed, turning in homework once this process has been completed compromises the integrity of the course and the grading structure. Students should email or fax the assigments in prior to the start of class if they are to be considered for full credit.
Classroom Rules of Conduct: Class start time is 5:00 Sharp. Cell phones must be turned off. Food and beverages are not permitted. Only one conversation at a time. Respect fellow students and the instructor. All homework assignments are to be submitted on time.
