TESTS:     6 tests are given as shown on the Course Syllabus for 100 points each and a comprehensive final for 200 points. No make-up tests may be taken. A missed test is a zero test score. Late class work will result in loss of points. Tests are graded and returned as soon as possible and certainly less than a week.

GRADES AND THE GRADE SCALE:     The final grade is based on the 800 points above plus any extra credit class or notebook points when test scores > D. This sum is divided by 8 for an average which is scaled to the following course grade:

ATTENDANCE IS REQUIRED:

  1. Each student is expected to attend every class and arrive on time including the final exam.
  2. FINAL EXAM: Monday, May. 9, from 8:00 to 9:50 p.m. for Sec. 650
  3. FINAL EXAM: Tuesday, May. 10, from 3:00 to 4:50 p.m. for Sec. 608
  4. Over three class absences during the semester will result in a course grade of F. Each two times tardy or two times missing some part of class will count as one absence.
  5. Call me before hand if you have an attendance problem or are having difficulty with this course.
