The total grade will be 2 exams, one over each half of the course material, and homework assignments. The exams will be broken up into 50% and 30% of your 100 total points, where the better exam score will be 50%. Homework will account for 20% of your grade. Anyone scoring 90 points or higher is exempt from the curve however, and will receive an A. Anybody receiving 70 points or more is guaranteed at least a C. Homework: All homework grades will be given out of 100 points. No homework will be accepted after the solutions are posted. Exams: There will be 2 exams, one over each half of the course material. Following is a tentative schedule to the semester. Monday 10/18 Monday 12/13 Wednesday 12/15 Monday 12/20 Exam #1 (Chapters 2-5) Exam #2 (Chapters 6-8) Review if you scheduled a final. Final - Optional (Chapters 2-8) Final Final Exam: The final exam in this class is optional. The exam will be cumulative and will evenly cover each of the first two exam material. The material is not limited to only that covered on the exams and all material lectured over is fair game. If you choose to take the final, your lowest test grade will be ignored, even if the final exam grade is lower. Quizzes: Quizzes are completely extra credit and any points received on a quiz (quizzes are generally worth 2 points), will be added on to your best exam score. It is important to note, that these quizzes can only help your grade. All quizzes will be open book and open note; however, they must be done alone. Access to our class's on-line Blackboard site: You can access class information on-line at: http://blackboard.sunysb.edu. If you used Blackboard during the Fall semester, your login information (Username and Password) has not changed. If you have never used Stony Brook's Blackboard system , your initial password is your SOLAR ID# and your username is the same as your Stony Brook (sparky) username, which is generally your first initial and the first 7 letters of your last name. For problems logging in, go to the helpdesk in the Main Library SINC Site or the Union SINC Site , you can also call: 631-632-9602 or e-mail: [email protected] Students with Disabilities: The following statement is inserted in this syllabus as part of official University policy. I will follow the recommendations of the Disabled Student Services office with regard to any student’s situation: “If you have a physical, psychiatric/emotional, medical or learning disability that may impact on your ability to carry out assigned course work, I would urge that you contact the staff in the Disabled Student Services office (DSS), Room 133 Humanities, 632 6748/TDD. DSS will review your concerns and determine, with you, what accommodations are necessary and appropriate. All information and documentation of disability is confidential.” Academic Integrity: Each student must pursue his or her academic goals honestly and be personally accountable for all submitted work. Representing another person’s work as your own is always wrong. Any suspected instance of academic dishonesty will be reported to the Academic Judiciary. For more comprehensive information on academic integrity, including categories of academic dishonesty, please refer to the academic judiciary website at http://www.stonybrook.edu/uaa/academicjudiciary/. ...
