Your grade consists of two test grades, a final, a set of labs, and a set of homework. The first two tests will each count 200 points, and the final is 250 points. All the labs together are worth 250 points and all the collected homework is with 100 points. Your points earned will be divided by 1000 (the maximum number of points possible) to give a numerical grade.
You need to be present for tests. Make-ups must be cleared before missing a test.
Each lab analysis and writeup is due within two weeks of being assaigned. Attendance will be taken for lab, and everyone must work on a lab to get credit. In order to pass the course you must pass your lab section, reguardless of other grades. With this in mind you can only miss three labs. If you miss a lab you can make it on on Fridays.
All homework assignments come from the exercises and problems section of each chapter. Your homework will be due on the Thursday two weeks after the corresponding chapter is covered in class.
Remember, in doing homework, labs, or tests, it’s important to explain as much as you can about what you are doing. We are looking for process as well as answers in this course.
