30 points quizzes 20 points homework 20 points tests (10 points each) 30 points final exam 4 points optional experiments (2 points each) ----------- 104 points
Course grades are based on a total of 100 points. I will adopt one of the following two systems of assigning letter grades:
Before each class, you will be told to read specific sections of your textbook. At the beginning of any or all class meetings, you will be given a brief quiz on that material, or material presented in the previous class. If you read the assignments in advance, and pay attention in class, you should be able to answer all questions with ease.
Homework assignments will be given each week, and will be collected one week later. I encourage you to work in groups on these assignments, if you wish. Several problems from each assignment will be graded, but you will not be told which ones. Illegible homework will be given a grade of zero. If you submit more than a single sheet of paper, you must staple them all together in the upper left-hand corner; I will deduct points for unstapled sheets.
Experiments are optional. Students may elect to do one or two experiments during the quarter. You may work in small groups (1 or 2 people) on experiments. No such assignments will be given during the final week of classes.
If you have any special needs, you must inform me during the first week of classes. Otherwise, I may not be able to make arrangements in time to help you. Please contact me after class or at my office.
