This is a 4 credit hour course. The rule of thumb at this University is that you should spend twice as many hours (on average) studying for this course outside of class as you do in class. That is, eight hours a week spent reading, doing the homework, recitation, and laboratory assignments, and studying for the quizzes and exams would be a typical investment of time for most students in this course.
