6/9/2015Basic Mathematic Principles17 TAMA 110 COURSE ASSESSMENT: QUIZZES -The best 5 of 6 accounts for 75% of the semester grade. All quizzes will be administered with closed books and no notes allowed and only during regularly scheduled class periods. Missed quizzes can be made up at the discretion of the Instructor. ALL QUIZZES WILL COVER THE TWO PREVIOUS SESSIONS
6/9/2015Basic Mathematic Principles18 TAMA 110 FINAL -The final examination will account for 25% of the semester grade. The final must be taken to pass the course. The Final will be administered with closed books and no notes allowed and only during regularly scheduled class periods. All students will be required to complete a comprehensive final examination that assesses the learning of all course objectives. This exam is to be a common exam administered to all sections of TAMA-110
