This preview shows page 3 - 5 out of 6 pages.

(or E-text), carefully read the textbook chapter (including the appendix if applicable) to gain a foundation of knowledge taking time to complete the example exercises embedded in the body of each chapter (the solution is included immediately following each exercise) 2. IN CATALYST , review the PowerPoint slides provided by Cengage to see the material in a concise and somewhat interactive format 3. IN CATALYST, review my Microsoft Word lecture notes to refresh and clarify the textbook reading 4. IN CATALYST, review the Microsoft Word case notes which present the applicable theory relating to each respective case (selected from the end of chapter problems, usually Problem Series A) and its detailed solution including supporting calculations Upon completion of the “lecture” work each week, you should do the following “assessment” work (in order): 1. IN CENGAGE, complete some/all of the optional, UNGRADED homework which allows unlimited attempts to test your comprehension and proficiency without penalty for mistake. Solutions are available immediately. The optional homework for each chapter opens at the same time the required homework for each chapter is available and remains open until 8pm on the last day of the quarter, Friday, June 24, 2016.
2. IN CENGAGE, complete the required homework. Assignments contain between 5 and 10 problems. For each homework problem, you will be allowed one opportunity to “check your work” followed by 2 submission attempts. Assignments will be available at the beginning of each week (Mondays at 1am) that we start a new chapter. Homework is due the following Monday at 8pm – late assignments are not accepted, no exceptions . For each assignment, you will receive a percentage score for your homework which will be multiplied by 10 points to translate it to a point value. We cover 8 chapters which makes 80 points and there is an “Introduction to Cengage” assignment in the first week which is worth another 10 points – the final 10 point homework assignment is a freebie, you’re welcome! Solutions are available immediately after the assignment closes for grading (Mondays at 8pm), it is your responsibility to review the solutions to discover your mistakes - I will not explain homework solutions (except during office hours, after you have unsuccessfully attempted to discover your mistakes after the assignment has closed for grading). 3. IN CENGAGE, complete the quiz which comprises 10 multiple choice questions, each worth 1 point. The quiz for each chapter will open at the same time as the respective required chapter homework and remain open until the respective chapter homework is due (Mondays at 8pm). The quiz will be timed – once you start it you will only have 20 minutes to complete it. There will be 8 quizzes as we are covering 8 chapters. I will drop your lowest three quiz scores. If you fail to take a quiz during the allotted time or have any technical issues (caused by you, Cengage, or anyone/anything else), you can’t make it up – instead it will be one of the three quizzes that gets dropped.
