20 percent class participation 50 percent homework 30 percent final exam ----------- 100 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, you may request a makeup test. However, you must provide a letter explaining the reason for your absence, which must be signed by you, your academic advisor and the head of your department. Without such a letter, you will receive a score of zero for the test.
I will deduct some credit from homework which is turned in late; after two weeks, no credit will be given for homework.
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.
