GRADING POLICY Course grades will be determined on the basis of three in-class exams worth 20 points each, a comprehensive final exam worth 25 points, and weekly lab sessions worth a total of 15 points (see lab syllabus for details). The final exam is mandatory, not optional. The first three exams will consist of 25 multiple-choice questions each and the final will consist of 50 multiple-choice questions. Exams will emphasize analytical and problem solving skills and will cover the assigned textbook chapters (see above) as well as any additional material presented in class. No extra credit work is possible.

What students are saying

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
