 Better
yet,
do
it
outside

Course
expectations:
 1. Attend
class
regularly
and
keep
up
with
the
assigned
readings.

There
will
be
 material
covered
in
the
lectures
that
is
not
in
the
textbook,
and
vice
versa.

 The
exams
and
quizzes
will
be
based
on
both
the
lectures
and
the
readings.
 2. Contact
Dr.
Yates
for
questions
concerning
lecture
or
textbook
content;
 contact
the
TA's
for
administrative
questions
regarding
grades,
etc.
 3. You
will
have
to
learn
difficult
names
of
important
mythological
figures
for
 this
class
‐
get
used
to
it!
 
 Technical
expectations:
 • Use
E‐Learning
to
review
images
used
in
lectures,
and
to
check
grades.

 Important
images,
if
they
do
not
appear
in
the
textbook,
will
be
posted
in
E‐ Learning
by
the
end
of
the
week
in
which
they
are
used
in
lecture.
 • An
introduction
and
demos
for
students
are
available
at
 http://lss.at.ufl.edu/services/els/stu_intro.shtml.
 
 Quiz/exam
expectations:
 1. There
will
be
a
midterm
exam
and
a
non‐cumulative
final
exam,
both
given
in
 class.

See
the
Schedule
for
dates.


 a. Each
exam
will
consist
of
multiple‐choice
questions.
 b. Make‐ups
will
be
allowed
only
for
documented
illness
or
family
 emergency;
see
'Make‐up
Work'
below
for
details.
 2. There
will
be
six
unannounced
quizzes
given
at
random
throughout
the
 semester.
 a. You
will
be
allowed
to
drop
one
quiz
grade.
 b. Each
quiz
will
be
a
short
multiple‐choice
exam
given
in
class.
 c. NO
MAKE‐UPS
WILL
BE
ALLOWED
FOR
QUIZZES.
 d. The
purpose
of
these
quizzes
is
to
reward
you
for
coming
to
class,
 encourage
you
to
keep
up
with
the
assignments,
and
give
you
some
 idea
of
what
the
midterm
and
final
exams
will
look
like.
 3. Please
do
not
ask
questions
while
an
exam
or
quiz
is
being
administered;
it
is
 not
the
time
to
consider
all
the
esoteric
and
philosophical
ramifications
of
a
 given
question.

(It's
a
multiple‐choice
question,
not
a
dissertation
topic!)
A
 careful
re‐reading
of
the
question
should
clarify
any
apparent
ambiguity;
 don't
waste
your
time
overthinking
it.
 4. Quizzes
and
exams
are
to
reflect
YOUR
work
only;
no
consultation
with
other
 individuals,
textbooks,
websites,
etc.
is
allowed.

CELL
PHONES
AND
 LAPTOPS
MUST
BE
OFF,
or
your
quiz
will
be
confiscated.

You
are
bound
by
 the
University
Honor
Code
when
taking
quizzes
and
exams.
 Make‐up
work:
 Any
request
for
a
make‐up
of
the
midterm
or
final
exam
based
on
medical
 emergency
must
be
accompanied
by
a
copy
of
the
physician's
excuse
form.

Family
 emergencies
(e.g.
death
in
the
family)
must
be
handled
through
the
Dean
of
Student
 Life,
who
will
provide
an
authorized
letter.

NO
MAKE‐UPS
WILL
BE
ALLOWED
FOR
 QUIZZES.
