GRADING:
There will be a number of written and lab assignments in addition to the scheduled exams. All
work is graded by points. At the end of the semester, the total number of points earned will be
divided into the number of points possible. Grades will then be based on this percentage:
A = 96 – 100%
B = 87 - 95% C = 80 - 86
F = 79% or below
Save all assignments after they are graded and returned. Mistakes can inadvertently be made
during the grade recording process and if a question should arise about your grade, it will be easier
to absolve if all graded and returned work is available.
STUDENTS WITH DISABILITIES:
If there is any student in this class who has need for test-taking, or other, accommodations due to
a disability, please feel free to discuss this with your instructor.
MATERIALS COST AND SOFTWARE USAGE FEE:
There are no fees for this course.
