Course Syllabus and Information
Homework will be assigned every one to two weeks throughout the semester. Unless otherwise stated, all assigments will be due one week after they are passed out. Homework will total 40% of the final grade. There will be a Mid-Term exam on October 15. It will contribute 20% to the final grade. The Final Exam will be Monday December 9, 12:30-2:30PM. The Final Exam will count 40% of the final grade. As this course has a small enrollment, I am giving myself a great deal of flexibility in assigning grades. Following is an approximate grading scale: 80-100% -> A 70- 79% -> B 60- 69% -> C 50- 59% -> D 0- 49% -> F The actual scale will not be harsher than this. Please feel free to ask about grades (or anything else) if you want to. Make-up Policy: If you know about a conflict in advance LET ME KNOW IN ADVANCE TOO!!!!. If something comes up, come talk to me about it.
