Assessment:

 

Daily                Homework.  5-10 problems will be assigned and one chosen to be graded    for 0-2 points.  You can chose a problem (even only) not assigned to be graded for 0-2 points for correctness and an extra 0-2 points for difficulty.

 

Random           Quizzes.  Based on homework and class discussions.  0-2 points for correctness both mathematically and grammatically.

 

3                      Tests of 75-minute duration that will occur during class periods.  There will be a week notice of the exam.

 

1                                            Comprehensive Final. This will be held in class on August 2 from 7:30am to 9:30am.  The comprehensive may be used to replace your lowest in class exam score.

 

 

Your course grade is based on 5 parts as follows:

 

Homework                                                       20 times your points/total points assigned

Test 1                                                               20 times your percentage from test       

Test 2                                                               20 times your percentage from test       

Test 3                                                               20 times your percentage from test       

Final*                                                               20 times your percentage from final

Quizzes(extra)                                                    5 times your points/total points assigned

 

* This score could replace a lower score from any other test.

                       

 

Letter grade:     A > OR = 90 >

                        B > OR = 80 >

                        C > OR = 70 >

                        D > OR = 60 > F
