Admin Stuff: Short Assignments There will be a short assignment due almost every week. The short assignments will, cumulatively, make up two of the Fve grades that will be the main determinants of your Fnal grade for the course. (So if do the short assignments conscientiously, it will help your grade a lot. If you don’t do the short assignments, you’ll probably fail the course.)

Admin Stuff: Short Assignments Some short assignments are designed to give you practice writing the parts of a philosophy paper before you write a whole paper. Some are designed to connect the stuff we’re doing in class to real-life issues and situations. Questions?

Admin Stuff: Short Assignments Short assignments will not be accepted if they’re turned in late. (Except in the case of a *documented* emergency.) You can rewrite up to two short assignments over the course of the term. (So long as the original got at least a 5/10.) Again, to prevent system-gaming.

Admin Stuff: Extra Credit & Short Assignments Short assignments will be graded on a 10-point scale. Your short assignment grades will be determined by the average of your short assignments in each half of the term. Short extra credit assignments will be graded generously on a 10-point scale, and added in to your average (iff adding them would help you).

Admin Stuff: Lectures and Recitation Sections Recitation section attendance and participation is 15% of your grade. In-lecture micro-quizzes will be 10% of your grade. So it’s a good idea to come to both lecture and recitation.
