Once you have logged in (and assuming that you are enrolled in the course), you can then enroll in any of the sections that still have space available by clicking the “enroll” button for that section. You will then be enrolled in the section highlighted in green. If you are not yet enrolled in the course, you will only be able to indicate your section preferences and the system will then enroll you once you have access to section enrollment. You can change your section enrollment through this website until 5:00 pm on January 22. Grading: Your final grade will be determined by what percentage of the total available points (720 points) you earn. Points are available as follows: 240 points for midterm 360 points for final exam 40 points for clicker questions 40 points for assignments 40 points for discussion section participation 720 points total These guidelines will be used to assign grades: >612 points (85%) A (A-, A or A+) >540 points (75%) B (B-, B or B+) >432 points (60%) C (C-, C or C+) >360 points (50%) D If necessary, these cutoffs will be adjusted downward so that at least 50% of students in the class receive an A or a B, but they will not be adjusted upward for any reason. Exam regrade requests must be submitted in writing with your exam to the instructor within one week of when graded exams were first made available for pickup.

If you have an illness, injury or personal crisis that you believe will prevent you from performing adequately on an exam, you must contact the instructor before the exam to discuss your options.

According to UCSD policy, academic dishonesty includes: • taking an exam for another student • allowing another student to take an exam for you • copying another student’s work on an exam • allowing another student to copy your work on an exam • altering a graded exam and submitting it for a regrade Since clicker questions earn you course credit, responding to them using another person’s clicker will also be considered an act of academic dishonesty. If the TAs see a student using more than one clicker, these clickers will be confiscated immediately. Any student caught cheating or suspected of cheating will be reported to the UCSD Academic Integrity Coordinator and the Dean of the student’s college. Confirmed cases of cheating will result in the student receiving an F as their final grade and other disciplinary actions determined appropriate by the Academic Integrity Coordinator....
