(75%): There will be 3 exams. All exams will be given on Fridays (see
schedule below)and will consist of multiple choice, fill-ins,
true-false statements and short essay questions. All questions will be
derived from lecture material and the textbook.
Do not miss an exam unexcused. Call my office and leave a message or send e-mail. I strongly recommend that you do not miss any scheduled exams. Nevertheless, you will not be penalized for taking one makeup exam. However, any additional makeups will include a penalty: a grade reduction of one letter grade (e.g., a B becomes a C).
WebTUTOR QUIZZES (10%): Quizzes will be provided on WebTUTOR
through Blackboard. You must take
at least 10 of the quizzes to satisfy the Quiz requirement for the course.
10 pts will be given for each passed quiz up to 10 quizzes. 10 passed
quizzes = 100 pts, 9 passed quizzes = 90 pts, etc.) A passing grade on a quiz is
65%. You may take the quizzes at any time and you may take any combination of
quizzes that you like. The point of the quizzes is to help you study the
material so, take as many of them as possible and in a timely manner (i.e.,
