COURSE MATERIALS : Course Materials: Most course materials will be available at the MyCourses page for this course. Powerpoint lecture notes will be available on the site AFTER class. Homework assignments and quizzes will be posted there too. You should also check that page regularly for announcements about the course. D. REVIEW SESSIONS: Voluntary review sessions every Tuesday afternoon at 4:00 to 4:50 pm in Newton 203 In addition to answering questions based on the lecture material, we can also use the voluntary review sessions to 1) answer any questions that you might have about the reading assignments; 2) assist you with study skills using specific examples drawn from the course material; and 3) discuss test taking strategies. E. Grading: Exams 1-4 = 75% of your grade (100 points per exam) Homework assignments = 15% of your grade (10 points per assignment) PRS participation points = 5% of your grade (1 point per day) PRS accuracy points = 5% of your grade (1 point per day) Total 100% There will be four exams, each worth the same (100 points/exam, 400 total) for 75% of your final grade. Each exam will cover roughly one-quarter of the course and consist of roughly 45 multiple-choice questions. The first three exams will be during class time (see syllabus). The fourth exam is non-cumulative and will be given during the final exam period and will cover only the fourth quarter material. PRS points will be worth 10% of your final grade and will be based on participation and the accuracy of your answers. One PRS participation score will be dropped each quarter and the lowest one-third of your PRS accuracy scores in each quarter will be dropped. Because PRS represents class participation it cannot be made up. Occasionally students have legitimate reasons for missing class.
