Whether you attend class or not, you are responsible for all material covered in class (which may extend beyond or amend the information covered in the text) and the content of any informational announcements made in class. ASSIGNMENTS Reading and Homework All assigned reading and homework should be attempted prior to the class session for which they are assigned. Homework is due on the day it is assigned. Only in-class submission will be accepted. Generally, the homework will be graded for completion not for accuracy. Solutions for the assigned homework problems will be available on Blackboard after the corresponding due date so that you can check your work. Solutions for assigned homework exercises will be available on Blackboard after the quiz covering the subject has been given. Quizzes Quizzes will include some of the exercises in the homework assignments that you submitted in class and questions on the concepts presented in the assigned readings. Each quiz will have two parts (Part-A and Part-B). Part-A will have questions and Part-B will have exercises. ? ? For each QUESTION in Part-A, you have only ONE chance to submit the correct answer. For each EXERCISE in Part-B, you are allowed up to THREE attempts to submit your answer (once you submit your answer, the system will tell you whether your answer is correct or not). If you submit the correct answer within three attempts, you will get full points for the exercise. Grading on quizzes is ALL or NOTHING. You can check out the solution after submitting your answer for each question (after 1st attempt for Part-A and 3rd attempt for Part-B). You will not receive any credits or penalty for viewing the solution. There are 12 quizzes which you need to take on Wiley Plus. The first quiz is practice quiz (Part-A & Part-B), and you will receive points for completing it. Out of the remaining 11 quizzes, I will use only 10 quizzes for your final grade and drop the one with the lowest score. The quizzes will be made available to you on Wiley Plus over the weekends as posted in the class schedule below and due by mid-night (12:00 am) on Sunday. EXAMS Four examinations will be administered in the evenings (6:00pm 8:00pm) indicated on the class schedule. If you have a class that meets at the time scheduled for these exams or there are extraordinary circumstances beyond your control that prevent you from taking the exam, you must notify me in writing (email is fine) prior to the exam and provide documentation that is acceptable to me. You must have my prior approval to take a make-up exam. 2 COURSE GRADE: Course grades are determined according to the following weighting scheme: Exam 1 Exam 2 Exam 3 Exam 4 Homework Quizzes Total 200 points 200 points 200 points 200 points 36 points 64 points (4 points from practice quiz) 900 points Your grade depends on your performance on the exams, homework and quizzes. The total points a student earns will determine his/her final grade. To be equitable to all students grades are strictly NON-NEGOTIABLE and individual requests for extra credit work will NOT be honored. COMMUNICATION AND ELECTRONIC RESOURCES In the event I need to communicate with the entire class prior to a class meeting, I will post an announcement on Blackboard and/or send an email using your UIC email address.
