Grading: The grade in this course will be based on two one-hour exams and a term paper, which will
count the same as an hour exam. The first hour exam will be at 12 PM on March 19, 2015. Graduate
students registered for 4 hours of credit will be required to compile a comprehensive bibliography on the
topic of their term paper. The bibliography should include all references on the topic after the year 2004.
