The pre chapter test then suggests which areas you need to study the most. You will also get a loose leaf black and white printed version which you may like to bring relevant parts of to class.

Grades for all assignments except ALEKS will be stored there. Grading for the Course: Grades for the course will be determined as follows: Homework (5%) approx. 12 assigned, drop 2 lowest. On Web. Class Exams (65%) 4 exams drop the 1 lowest score Final Exam** (30%) Cumulative ALEKS CH 302 (Bonus Option 1: 5%) See detailed discussion. Clicker Quizzes (Bonus Option 2: 5%) Number TBD; 1 will be dropped. This sums to 105%, because the clicker OR CH302 ALEKS scores will be BONUS points. ** Or the average of ALL FOUR in class exams (see details later) IGNORE ANY calculations of overall grade on Quest.
