If you anticipate needing any type of accommodation in this course or have questions about physical access let me know as soon as possible. I’m here to help! Course Overview The skinny G. Dirk Mateer Penn State University By signing up for this course you have accepted the responsibility of being an active learner and of participating in the classroom discussion. More importantly, you need to be committed to learning the subject matter. If you are not open to new ideas, or are not committed, expect your grade to reflect this. Your continued enrollment in this course means that you accept these responsibilities and are aware of the guidelines set forth in the syllabus. Grades are a carrot that encourages learning. While I will not hesitate to give a poor grade when your performance indicates that you have not learned the material, I want everyone to do well. I promise that the course average will be consistent with the typical GPA awarded in the College of Liberal Arts at the undergraduate level. It is my goal to help you understand the topics and to do well on the exams. I realize that you have a busy schedule and often face difficulty in getting So You Want to Be a Millionaire? It's easy, here is your chance. In this class you buy your grade. Therefore you have to earn enough income to afford the grade you would like. The good news is that it is easy to make money in this course; the bad news is that if you don’t have quite enough money you will have to settle for the next best grade. The primary way of earning income is by doing well on the exams. Each of the exams will have 40 multiple-choice questions - you must answer 37. The three questions you leave blank will be scored as correct. Think of these three questions as “lifelines” just like on Who Wants to be a Millionaire? Each of the midterms and final is worth $200,000 (or 20% of your grade). In addition, you will be randomly assigned to a small group and asked to complete two short papers. Each of these papers is worth $100,000 (or 10% of your grade). This component is part of the General Education Writing requirement of this course. More information about this project will be available during the second week of the semester. Extra Credit:
