Unformatted text preview: (these are obtained
from UCSD Extension as part of the course enrollment process). 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. Exams
written in pencil will not be regraded.
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.
Academic Integrity: Academic dishonesty will not be tolerated in this course.
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....
