Monday, May 11 CUMULATIVE FINAL EXAM (200 POINTS)
Student Evaluation System:
You will be expected to pre-read the textbook sections prior to class. Every
other odd- numbered exercise
plus any others that may be required to achieve mastery should be completed as
homework. If you choose
to be graded on a P/NC basis (P = 70+%), you need to notify me in writing no
later than our third class
session (January 19th).
ABSOLUTELY NO MAKEUP tests will be given unless prearranged.
ANY CHEATING will result in a course grade of NC.
Bonus points will awarded on bonus quizzes ONLY during the class in which they
are offered –
NO MAKE-UP QUIZZES. Your grade will be based on your test/quiz score performance
the percentages as follows:
|Test on Chapters 1-2
||90% or more => A
|Test on Chapters 3-4
||80 – 89% => B
|Test on Chapters 5-6
||70-79% => C
|Test on Chapters 7-8
||60-69% => D
||< 60% => NC
||+ MANY other points for misc. quizzes, WebAssingn, and
Poor course performance has been linked to poor class attendance. Thus it is of
utmost importance that you
make every effort to attend every class to ensure that you will fully understand
all concepts as they are
explained. It is quite evident that I cannot possibly provide you with quality
instruction if you are not
