LAPTOPS, TEXTING, TWITTERING have proven to be a distraction and will not be allowed in class.
Attendance for the full class period is required. Attendance will be taken and will count as part of your grade, equal in weight to a Test. Pop quizzes are likely as well.
COURSE GRADES will be based on the three exams, all of equal weight, using a straight scale (e.g. A+ 98; A 92; A- 90), and on course attendance and pop quiz scores. Test and course grades will be available via the Z404 Oncourse Gradebook link.
No make-ups will be given without documentation for a University sanctioned excuse. Any requests to review individual tests should be made to the GA within a week of the grade posting. Sorry, but there are simply no opportunities for extra credit or for "rounding up" a course grade in a class of this size.
Please see the syllabus for semester-specific course info.
