Anyone enrolled in the course has access at http://blackboard.unc.edu by using your ONYEN. Please become familiar with Blackboard because I will send class emails, post questions/answers on the discussion board as well as announcements during the semester. I will also post exam grades here so individuals will be able to confirm their grades. Exam Schedule Three midterm exams will be given during the semester; the chapter coverage shown below is approximate: Thursday, September 15 (Ch 10-12) Thursday, October 13 (Ch 13-15) Thursday, November 17 (Ch 16-17, 19) The final exam will be given on Thursday, December 15, at 8 am. It will include a smaller section on new material (from Ch 20-21) AND a larger cumulative portion covering the entire semester. No make-up exams will be given. If you know that you will be absent on an exam day, you can make arrangements to take the exam early. Final exams can be rescheduled (for a date prior to 12/15) ONLY with a Dean’s excuse and ONLY if arrangements are made before the last class of the semester (which is Tuesday, 12/6). All exams must be written in pen. If a mistake was made in the way a problem was graded, please hand the exam in to me so that the mistake can be corrected; this request must be made within one week of the exam being returned in class. However, frivolous requests for additional points are not appreciated or rewarded. Note that a fraction of exams are Xeroxed in their entirety prior to being returned to students. 1 Page
