concepts and provide self-examination of that understanding as well as enhance the quality of your classroom discussions. Although I will not grade all class homework assignments, I do strongly encourage you to work these assignments as we progress through the course material. The more you practice, the better your performance will be in this course! Quizzes Four quizzes will serve as a basis for determining whether students complete the required chapter readings and homework. Make sure you attend each class so that you are able to take the quizzes. You cannot make up a missed quiz. Exams The course will consist of a midterm exam and a final exam. The midterm will test Chapters 1-7 (excluding Ch 4), and the final will test Chapters 8-12 (see course schedule). The exams will likely contain both multiple-choice and problem-oriented questions that relate to required course materials, quizzes, and assignments. You are not allowed to bring any electronic devices (other than a non- programmable calculator) to the exams. Exams are individual in nature and should be based on your own effort; I will not accept responses based on a group or another individual’s effort. Unacceptable exam submissions will receive a score of zero. There will be no make-up exams. If you miss an exam without making prior arrangements with me, you will receive a grade of zero for that exam. There are practice quizzes available in the Library section of Connect for each chapter, which can be helpful in preparing for course testing. G RADING

What students are saying

    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.
