Monday, May 11 CUMULATIVE FINAL EXAM (200 POINTS)
Student Evaluation System:
You will be expected to preread 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 MAKEUP QUIZZES. Your grade will be based on your test/quiz score performance
using
the percentages as follows:
Participation 
100 points 

Test on Chapters 12 
100 points 
90% or more => A 
Test on Chapters 34 
100 points 
80 – 89% => B 
Test on Chapters 56 
100 points 
7079% => C 
Test on Chapters 78 
100 points 
6069% => D 
FINAL EXAM 
200 points 
< 60% => NC 
Total 
700 points 
+ MANY other points for misc. quizzes, WebAssingn, and
projects.
