Link to Class RubricClass Assessment:
The final is part of the core assessment. The final is a departmental exam and it will be provided to the instructor by the department of mathematics. The final is 2 hrs; books, notes, and a non-graphing, non-programmable calculator are allowed.
The final course grade will be determined using the following measurements:
Core Assessment: 33%
Class Participation: 2%
The core assessment will cover all assigned reading to the end of Chapter 7. To achieve the maximum grade for class participation, the student should attend all classes, remain alert and attentive, answer questions when asked, avoid disruptive behavior, and actively participate in discussions and small groups as appropriate. The following will be used to assign course letter grades:
90 – 100 A
80 - <90 B
65 - <80 C
60 - <65 D
Below 60 F (or 3 unexcused or 4 total absences)
There will be no curve used in the grading nor will extra work be accepted for credit.
Late Submission of Course Materials:
Prior arrangements for late assignments due to traveling must be made with the instructor at least one week in advance.
Classroom Rules of Conduct:
Class Participation is expected and will form a part of the final grade. Students are expected to attend all classes and be on time. Roll will be checked each class meeting. Classes missed for legitimate reasons, such as illness, temporary duty, are excusable; however, the student must notify the instructor (prior to the class to be missed if possible) and make up the missed work as follows:
o Read and be responsible for assigned readings/course content;
o If a test is to be missed it must be taken before the scheduled test date.
o If this is impossible, it must be taken before the class begins the week following the scheduled test date or a grade of zero (0) will be assigned for that exam.
o It is the student's responsibility to contact the instructor and arrange to take the test.
Academic Honesty:Academic integrity is the foundation of the academic community. Because each student has the primary responsibility for being academically honest, students are advised to read and understand all sections of this policy relating to standards of conduct and academic life.
