HOMEWORK: Homework will be assigned and discussed
in class but may or may not be taken for a grade, at the discretion of the
instructor. Exam questions will be very similar to homework problems. If you
expect to succeed in this class you must do the homework and ask questions.
ATTENDANCE: You are expected to be on time and
attend all classes (the majority of failing grades are due to lack of
attendance). Role will be taken every class meeting and continuous absences will
be reported to the Dean of Enrollment Management through the Early Alert System.
Excessive unexcused absences may result in a failing grade and also may be
considered as class abandonment by the college (see catalog). Exceptions will be
made for extraordinary circumstances, athletes absent due to sports events, and
students participating in college related functions. In the event a class is
missed, the student is responsible for all material and assignments
missed. Check with the instructor or a fellow student for assignments. If you
know in advance that you will be unable to attend class (especially on an
scheduled exam day), contact the instructor prior to that day. Quizzes and exams
can only be made up for an excused absence and must be made up within one week
of the date of the missed quiz or exam.
GRADING: Your grade will be determined by daily
quizzes (approximately 50) worth 10 points each, 5-6 chapter exams worth 100
points each, and a comprehensive final worth 200 points. Your final grade will
be determined by the total number of points earned divided by the total number
of possible points.
WITHDRAWAL POLICY: A grade of “W” will be assigned
if the student completes the withdrawal process by the withdrawal deadline. If
the student does not do this, but simply quits coming to class, a grade of “F”
will be assigned. See school policy.
Americans with Disabilities Act: Any student with a
mental or physical disability that may affect his or her performance should
inform me by the second-class meeting so that, if possible, reasonable
accommodations can be made.
