The following information comes from the named instructor and should describe characteristics general to courses as taught by this instructor. Individual sections of specific courses will deviate from this description in some respects.

Class Format

Each student is given partially completed notes for each unit. They are completed during each class period. Students are given daily assignments in the textbook.

Resource Use

Textbook - needed for the homework assignments

Calculators - Limited to Scientific calculators, used as needed

Computer software - none

Online homework - none

Assessment

In some classes homework quizzes are given frequently and are from the homework assigned in the textbook and total 75 points for semester.  In other classes homework is turned in and graded are worth a total 100 points for semester.  Some classes have each unit review worth 40 points.  4 or 5 unit tests and a final Exam are given. Some classes the unit test contains both a take home test and in class test, other classes include only a Unit Test.  All unit tests are worth 100 points each.  A test analysis is given after most unit tests to correct the mistakes at a value of 10 points each.

Homework Policy

See the Assessment section (above).  Due to fairness consideration, late work is NOT accepted.

Attendance Policy

Your absence may affect your grade because of your subsequent lack of knowledge and understanding. However, absences are NOT part of the grading formula. Makeup tests are never given after the graded tests are returned which is the next class period after the test is given.  The final exam score will replace a missed test.
