Riley Office: Anthropology Bldg., Rms. 215D or 235E Office Hours: T, 3:30-5:00 P.M. and W, 2 - 3:30 P.M. or by appointment Email: teriley@neo.tamu.edu Course website: http://elearning.tamu.edu II. Textbooks: Faces of Anthropology: A Reader for the 21 st Century (5 th edition)- Rafferty and Ukaegbu Tequila!: A Natural and Cultural History — Valenzuela-Zapata and Nabhan Plants and People in Ancient Ecuador: The Ethnobotany of the Jama River Valley - Pearsall In the reading assignments, these textbooks are referred to, respectively, as Faces, Tequila and Plants . Any other readings assigned for the course will be available on the class website . III. Grade: The course grade will be based on an average of your three exam grades. Each exam will count one-third your grade. All exams are of equal value. During the course there will be three in-class exams. There is no final. The exams are not cumulative. They will cover only reading and lecture material covered during the current part of the course. Because of legal requirements we will not be able to tell you any grade over the telephone or by email. All exam scores will be posted on the course webpage. We will post the grades for each exam as soon as they are graded and recorded. All posted grades will already include any bonus points and other grade adjustments for each exam. Exams— Each exam will consist of multiple-choice questions and you will be required to fill out your answers on a scantron sheet. Each exam will also have several bonus questions. Each exam is worth 100 points for a total of 300 points for the course. Approximately 50% of the questions for each exam will come directly from my lectures and any video shown in class. The other 50% of each exam will come from information in the textbook readings. Extra-Credit The only opportunities for extra-credit in this course are the bonus questions on each exam. These points will be added to each exam score. Rounding off final grades —Each semester some students flock to my office asking me to “ round off their final grade so that they will receive the “next highest grade.” The rationalization for this seems to vary among students, and each student seems to have a unique and logical reason why they need the next highest grade. Let me save you some time by saying that I do not plan to round off grade averages. In order to take each of the tests (including the final) you must do the following:
