20 points reading quizzes 20 points homework 30 points tests (15 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.
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 very brief quiz on that material. If you read the assignments in advance, you should be able to answer all questions with ease.
Homework assignments will be given each week. I encourage you to work in groups on these assignments, if you wish. The assignments must be completed using the WebWork system. I'd like to know how you feel about this mechanism after you've tried it.
Experiments are optional. Students may elect to do one or two experiments during the quarter. You may work in small groups (1 to 2 people) on experiments.
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.
