Grading Policy: A (657730 pts.), B (584656 pts.), C
(511583 pts.), D (438510 pts.), F (0437 pts.)
Late Assignments
Policy: Hard copies
of all assignments, journal entries, etc. are due at the beginning of class on
the specified date (see course schedule).
Late assignments will not be accepted unless prior approval has been
given by the instructor. In the event
that a late assignment is accepted, the grade on the assignment will be lowered
(i.e. points will be deducted).
Attendance Policy: Students are expected to attend all classes. This term a student may withdraw with a grade of W through March 4th, regardless of grades, absences, etc. This deadline has been established by the University. After this deadline, if a student has accumulated more than three absences throughout the semester, he/she will normally receive a grade of WF (which counts as an F). The three absences should be saved for sickness and other emergencies. Late arrivals and early exits count onehalf of an absence. If a student is absent for a test and has an excuse from someone in authority, then the final exam grade will be used for the missed test in the calculation of the final course grade. No makeup exams will be given. This means no early tests/no late tests under any circumstance.
Suggested
Problems: For
each section covered in class there will be a set of problems provided. These are not homework problems in the sense
that they will be taken up and graded.
Instead, these are problems that are recommended for you to work in
order to be successful in the class. If
you have questions concerning the suggested problems, you should address these
questions to the instructor during office hours, before or after class, or
during the review session prior to the test.
Conferences: Conferences can be beneficial
and are encouraged. All conferences
should occur during the instructor’s office hours, whenever possible. If these hours conflict with a student’s
schedule, then appointments should be made.
The conference time is not to be used for duplication of lectures that
were missed; it is the student’s responsibility to obtain and review lecture
notes before consulting with the instructor.
The instructor is very concerned about the student’s achievement and
wellbeing and encourages anyone having difficulties with the course to come by
the office for extra help. Grades will
be based on coursework, not on Hope Grant needs, GPA, or any other factors
outside the realm of coursework.
