Participation: 10.0%, Group Case Discussion: 18%. Therefore, the formula to calculate your course grade is: 0.18 x grade Exam 1 + 0.18 x grade Exam 2 + 0.18 x grade Exam 3 + 0.18 x grade Exam 4 + 0.10 x Attitude/Participation grade + 0.18 x Group Case Discussion grade. The letter grade assigned to the scores will follow this table: A 92.5+ C+ 76.5 – 79.4 A- 89.5 – 92.4 C 72.5 – 76.4 B+ 86.5 – 89.4 C- 69.5 – 72.4 B 82.5 – 86.4D 59.5 - 69.4 B- 79.5 – 82.4 F below 59.5. Exams. The 4 exams are non-cumulative and consist of multiple-choice questions (please bring green scantrons). They will cover all aspects of the material presented in class: readings and lectures. Students who are late more than 20 minutes to take an exam will not be allowed to take it and such exam will be considered as missed. A missed exam counts as 0 (zero) and make-up exams will not be scheduled (the dates of each exam are listed in the course schedule on the end of this syllabus). Very few exceptions to this rule are explained on page 6 of this syllabus. Attitude and Participation : Class attitude and participation in class are important parts of this course. Therefore, students are expected to help creating a productive learning environment, free of distractions and disruptions. For example, the use of cell phones in class is prohibited by the FAU and the Undergrad Catalog says that “pagers, beepers, cell phones have to be disabled.” Students who choose not to follow this rule will get an “F” (0) on the final grade of class participation and attitude. Detailed criteria regarding this grade are explained on page 6 of this syllabus. Grading issues. Students wishing to review their exams will be able to do so within seven (7) days of general notification of grades for that particular exam. Exam review should be scheduled with the TA, preferably during her/his office hours. If after reviewing the exam and clarifying your doubts you want to request the grade revision, the request should be submitted in writing on a Grade Appeal Form, available from the TA or from the professor. Case / Article Discussion. The class will be divided by me in groups ranging from 5 to 7 students to discuss selected cases and articles that are listed on the last two pages of the syllabus: all cases/articles are posted in Blackboard in the folders related to each class topic. The discussions will consist of identifying the problem, causes, alternatives, and potential solutions for the issues approached in the case by applying concepts learned in the course. It is vital

    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.
