Evaluation (top) Grading (top)
Grades in the course will be based on the ten point scale  (90-100 = A, 80-89 = B, etc.).  Depending upon class performance, the scale may be adjusted down, e.g., an 89 might be an A.  Points will be awarded according to the following percentages:
Assigned Problems 
50 %
Semester Exam
25 %
Comprehensive Final Exam 
25 %
It is possible to change the distribution, with agreement of all students in the class and myself.

Turning in work, Attendance (top)
To get full credit, you must have the correct answer and show appropriate work.  Assignments are due by the beginning of the designated lecture period, unless otherwise indicated.  Late assignments can be turned in until solutions are posted, but will receive at least a 50 % grade reduction.  If you have ANY questions about a graded assignment, you must talk to me about it within a week of my return of the graded assignment to the class.  Please work together on assignments (even discuss your answers), but do not copy!

Disabilities (top)
Any student in this course who has a disability that may prevent him or her from fully demonstrating his or her abilities should contact me personally as soon as possible so that we can discuss accommodations necessary to ensure full participation and facilitate your educational opportunity.

Academic Misconduct (top)
You are encouraged to work together on assignments.  However, copying is not acceptable.  Copied assignments will receive a zero grade. Cheating on a test will cause the student to receive a zero grade, at a minimum.  If you are to miss an assignment due date, exam, quiz,  field trip, or laboratory session you must have a valid excuse and notify me prior to the event.
