Grading

30% Groupwork Homework

You will be assigned study groups with which you will work on homework problems.  You will hand in assignments that you all sign off on and receive the same grade on.  Groups will be reassigned after each quiz.

40% Quizzes

There will be 5 in-class quizzes (full period tests), worth 10% each.  The lowest grade (or missed quiz) will be dropped.  If you miss more than that, I plan to give zero on missed quizzes.  Dates:

  • Wednesday, September 7
  • Wednesday, September 28
  • Wednesday, October 19
  • Wednesday, November 9
  • Wednesday, December 7

30% Final Exam

A traditional final exam, designed to take 2 hours to write, but 2.5 hours will be available.
