The exams will most often be a mixture of multiple choice and free response questions (short answer, essay, mechanism…). The instructor does reserve the right to give exam that are composed of all multiple choice or all free response questions. The instructor also reserves the right to make different versions of an exam with different questions that cover the same course material and concepts. The final exam will count as two exams (200 points) and will be a comprehensive exam over the whole semester. The final exam will be a two-hour exam and therefore will be approximately twice the length of a regular semester exam. It is very important that each student show up on time during Exam days. Every effort will be made by the instructor to distribute the exam materials in a timely fashion. Students that arrive to take the exam after the first student has turned in their exam and left the exam room will not be allowed to take the exam. The late arrival to an exam shall be treated as an unexcused absence to an exam and the student shall receive a zero, 0, for the exam grade. Quizzes:
