COURSE EVALUATION/GRADING SCHEME
Homework/quizzes: Homework will be assigned each class period. This will coincide with the material discussed in class. Homework will consist of two parts. The first part will be in the form of quizzes that may be either given at the end of class or given to you to be completed and returned at the next regular scheduled class. The second part will be assignment of additional problems to be completed and kept in a ringed binder along with your syllabus, quizzes, hand outs and exams. This notebook will be inspected during the semester and given a homework grade(s). No late homework will be accepted.
You will have three(3) exams during the semester and a final. The exams will be given in class or the testing center. This will depend on the progress of the material by the class. The dates for the exams are as follows.
Exam. 1 Feb. 15
Exam. 2 Mar. 22
Exam. 3 Apr. 21
Final May 12
All examination material will be graded on the basis of the solution process, work shown and the final answer(that answered the question ask). Partial credit will be given to the various aspects listed in the grading process. The more work shown, the more credit given. No makeup Exams will be given. It is your responsibility to be in class and participate in the daily class activities. Also, you must take the final to pass the course.
