15 percent in-class quizzes and reports 15 percent homework 45 percent (total) tests 25 percent final exam 4 percent optional extra credit assignments (2 percent each) ----------- 104 percent
Course grades are based on a total of 100 percent.
At the end of the course, I shall calculate the total score for each student. Based on the overall distribution of scores in the class, I may use the traditional means of assigning letter grades to scores ("A" for greater than 90%, "B" for 80% to 90%, etc.); or I may slide the grade boundaries downward to some degree.
If you know in advance that you will have to miss a test, or if you miss a test unexpectedly, you may request a makeup test. However, you must fill out the following form to REQUEST a makeup test:
There will be no makeups for in-class material or homeworks. However, you may do one or two of the Extra Credit assignments to recoup lost credit.
You will need to purchase a pad of good graph paper for your use in class. The paper must have 10 squares per inch. The RIT bookstore sells a good variety, Ampad 10x10 Cross Section Pad, item #22-026, for $3.95.
You may choose to participate in this study, or not to participate; there is no effect on your grade. If you choose to participate, you will be given a quiz to answer once a week; it should take about 10 minutes. Sometimes, the quiz will cover material which you have not seen in class; don't worry, your performance won't affect your grade in any way.
The first E-mails inviting you to participate will be sent next Monday, with "RAWR" in the subject line.
If my office door is open, please feel free to visit.
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.
