COURSE REQUIREMENTS— Grading is based on a standard college curve, where students earn a grade based upon the percent of total possible points they obtain. Although subject to slight modification based on the discretion of the instructor, the lecture component of this course will consists of 500 points (12 drop quizzes worth 10 points each, 4 lecture exams worth 100 points each, and one final exam worth 100 points). Lecture points are added to laboratory point (500 points) to obtain the total points possible for the course (1000). (Note: Regardless of the number of points, lecture points will comprise 50% of the total points and lab points will comprise 50% of the total points.) Drop quizzes may not be made up, but students will be able to drop their two lowest scores of the twelve drop quizzes given during the semester. There is a one-week grace period to make up any missed exam or assignment. Any missed exam/work not made up within the allotted time will be given a zero. Makeup exams may be of an essay nature and are usually considered more difficult. It is the responsibility of the student to schedule make- up work during a date and time convenient to both student and instructor.
