Assignments and Grading There will be three exams, each covering roughly one-third of the course material. Makeup exams will only be possible in cases of illness or emergency (I may ask for written verification). Please bring three small greenbooks (or bluebooks) to class on or before the last day before the first exam. Test-taking protocol: Please be punctual for the exam. I will not allow students to begin the exam after any students who take the test have finished and left the room. Also, if you start late, you will have less time, because you will not be allowed to end late. No electronic devices are allowed during the exam. Please turn off cell phones and remove earphones. You may not leave the room after the exam is distributed until you have completed the exam. In addition to the exams, each student must complete other written assignments, described below. Cr/NC grading option is possible only if you sign up for it before the university census date (20 th day of the semester).

Grades will be calculated as follows: Exams - 29% each = 87% Paragraphs - 13% Grades will be assigned numerically according to the following scale: A = 92.50-100 C = 72.50-77.49 A- = 90.00-92.49 C- = 70.00-72.49 B+ = 87.50-89.99 D+ = 67.50-69.99 B = 82.50-87.49 D = 62.50-67.49 B- = 80.00-82.49 D- = 60.00-62.49 C+ = 77.50-79.99 F = 0-59.99 Academic dishonesty, such as cheating on an exam or plagiarism, will result in a failing grade for the entire course. Plagiarism is any use of someone else’s ideas or wording without giving proper credit to that person. It includes using direct quotations from someone else’s work without using quotation marks (even if you cite the source), or using someone else’s ideas without citing their work. Any student scoring an F on two exams will receive a failing grade for the class, regardless of the
