3. As you would expect, great care is taken in the marking of exams and homework but in the unlikely event that you believe an exam or homework must be re-read, take your written request to the Grader Manager (not the course instructor) within 5 business days of when the exams were returned in class. If a request is made, all questions may be re-evaluated and a new grade may be assigned. If a new grade is assigned, it may be higher or lower than the original grade. 4. Only midterm exams and homework written in INK will be eligible to be re-read. You may of course choose to write in pencil but, in doing so, you will release your right to request a re-read. Final exams may be written in ink or pencil. 5. To pass the course it is necessary to achieve at least 50% on the final exam and achieve at least 50% on the combined average of the midterm, Excel quiz and final examinations (at least 47.5 out of 95). 6. Homework assignments will NOT be counted towards your course grade unless you have passed the course as described above. 6. HOMEWORK ( Two different kinds - Individual and Group ) Homework will be assigned throughout the course. Some homework will be graded and will count towards your course grade as indicated above. Other homework will be assigned for practice but will not count towards your grade. When homework is to be handed in and graded, the due date will be Thursdays at 12:00 noon on the weeks indicated in the course schedule. (If a Thursday is a holiday and the University is closed, the due date will be Friday, 12:00 noon). The homework will be marked and returned to you during your weekly Excel labs. With a course of this size, it is important to adhere to the homework due dates and the arrangements for collecting and returning homework. Homework must be handed in to the Commerce 290 MAILBOXES located on the second floor of the Swing Building. Homework may not be handed into your Excel Tutorial Assistant, the Grader Manager, the Course Tutor, the Course Administrator or your Professor. Late homework will not be marked . Presentation Marks: Up to twenty percent of your homework grade will be for effective presentation of your solutions. When you use the computer, place the relevant computer output into an appropriate spot in your answer or, if you choose to type your work, use word processing software such as Microsoft Word or WordPerfect to cut and paste your computer output into your work. Homework does NOT need to be typed to receive full marks.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
