Exams Midterm 1: March 4 in class Lectures 1-10 (30%) Midterm 2: April 20 in class Lectures 11-20 (30%) Final: May 14 Javits 100 comprehensive (40%) (11:15-1:45) Grades are based on a curve made from the weighted averages of the three exams. No make ups for midterms. For valid reasons one can get an excused absence. Check your schedule NOW for conflicts--multiple finals, MCATs, etc. are not valid excuses for missing an exam. Academic Dishonesty We have a zero tolerance policy for any type of cheating. People caught cheating will be given an F in the course and reported to the Academic Judiciary Committee. Answering questions with someone else’s clicker is considered academic dishonesty. Cell phones and all electronic devices should be off and put away during exams. Please turn off cell phones and refrain from talking during class as a courtesy to the instructor and other students.
