b. the probability of an event that involves using the addition rule;
c. the probability of an event that involves conditional probability;
d. the probability of an event that involves the use of independence of events;
e. the probability of an event based upon permutations and/or combinations;

Link to Class RubricClass Assessment:
Three graded examinations will be provided. The final will be comprehensive and both tests will cover assigned reading, homework and quizzes. Review will be conducted to assure that the student fully grasps areas that will be tested. The examinations will cover 75% of your grade while homework and class participation will cover the other 25%. Homework assignments will be given throughout the course.
Each exam is worth 25%
Class participation & homework 25%.
A 90% or higher
B 80% to 89.9%
C 70% to 79.9%
D 60% to 69.9%
F below 60%
Late Submission of Course Materials:
Students may make up a missed test or quiz, but the student will lose some or all of the total possible points on if the student has made previous arrangements. Any homework assignments that are turned in late, no credit will be given. Any absences that occur the student must have 3rd party documentation of the reason, i.e. TDY order, leave orders, medical, etc. No makeup of materials will be allowed without said documentation.
It is the student’s sole responsibility to obtain all assignment information from missed days of class and have the assignments submitted on the due date. Failure to obtain the assignment information and not submitting assignments on time will result in a losing some or all points possible.
