Exams : There will be three exams, on Wednesday, Feb. 16, from 8:00-10:00 p.m. in WTHR 200; Wednesday, March 30, from 8:00-10:00 p.m. in WTHR 200; and during finals week. The final exam is comprehensive. All of the exams feature four to six long essay/graphical analysis questions. If you miss one of the first two exams, for ANY reason, your score on the final exam will be used to calculate points for the exam you missed. One-Minute Papers: At the end of 10 regular class sessions (not the exam review sessions), chosen more or less at random, you will be asked to turn in a “one-minute paper.” These papers basically consist of short answers to two questions: one on what topics you had most trouble understanding in classes since the last one-minute paper, and the second on the most important things covered in classes since the last one-minute paper. You will receive one point for each of these papers you sign and turn in at the end of class. No late or make-up submissions of these papers will be accepted, and no excused absences will be considered for these very small assignments. The goals here are simply to get feedback from you on the classes, to have you think about the key content covered in class sessions and write down what you feel you understand and what you do not, and to provide a small reward to those
