Requirements: The course will consist of a
combination of teacher demonstrations with student participation in
discussions, individual, and group work. 1.
There will be seven Homework Quizzes
during the quarter based upon the suggested problems. No makeups will be
given, unless arranged in advance. The lowest quiz will be dropped
in computing the course grade. Note that success in the course requires
practice: at a minimum, students should work the problems that are suggested. 2.
There will be three inclass Tests.
Note the dates; no makeups will be given, unless arranged in
advance. If higher, onehalf of the score on the final exam will replace
the lowest test score to compute the course grade. 3.
There will be a comprehensive twohour Final
Examination, Tuesday, June 29, from 6:15 to 8:15 pm. Any student missing
the final exam will fail the course; no excuses are acceptable. Grading: Quizzes (best
6 X possible 25 points each) 150 Tests (3 X
possible 50 points each) 150 Final
Exam (1 X
possible 100 points) 100 400 points Course grades will reflect the
following percentage range of total scores: A = [360, 400+] C = [240, 300) F = below 50% (below 200) B =
[300, 360) D = [200, 240) Grades of B+, B, and C+ will be used as the final distribution of grades warrants; A will not be used. Attendance: Regular attendance is expected. A student who misses any class during the first two weeks of the quarter may be dropped from the course. Inform the instructor, in advance, of any necessary absences; telephone the instructor and leave a message if an emergency arises. Note, however, that it is the student's responsibility to formally "drop" the course. Protect your academic record by observing these deadlines: 23 April to drop with no record 5 May for P/NP option 2 June to drop with a "W"
