10 Course Policies  Academic Integrity  HAVE SOME.  Don’t cheat, and don’t be complicit in cheating.  Bad things happen when you compromise your integrity, academic or otherwise.  See university policy. 10

11 Course Policies  Attendance  The most successful students attend, arrive on time and stay the entire class period.  Please show some respect if arriving late.  I don’t take attendance, so I don’t need (or want) to hear about doctor notes and court dates.  If you miss class, DO NOT ask me what you missed. Ask your classmates. 11

12 Course Policies  Attendance  No make-ups for ANY reason. Really.  The classroom is the primary source of information. I am under no obligation to or post information that is announced and discussed in class. And I probably won’t. 12

13 Course Policies  TESTS  There are four regular semester tests and one final exam.  The course grade will include your highest FOUR test/exam grades.  If you are happy with your grade at the end of four tests, you do not need to take the final exam (#5).  If you choose to take the final exam it will replace the lowest score from tests1-4.  The optional final exam will replace a MISSED test. 13

14 Course Policies  HOMEWORK  Chapter-specific graded homework quizzes will be on Blackboard (or Moodle).  Count as 10% of your final grade.  Quizzes for each chapter are due the evening before the test for that chapter.  There are 100 total questions. 14

15 Course Policies  Calculating the grade: Grades will be calculated as follows: (Tests 90%, Homework 10%) Final Grade =.90(Test Points/4) +.10(HW score) EXAMPLE: Assume your grades on tests 1-4 are 80, 77, 74 and 84, and you have earned 95 out of a possible 100 homework points. Final Grade =.90[( )/4) +.10(95) =.90(78.75) +.10(95) = 80.4, B 15
