EXAMS AND QUIZZES

Exams: Exams will be composed of objective and essay questions. Four exams will be given during the course of the semester. Each of these exams will cover about one-fourth of the course material and each will count for 20 percent of the student's final grade. The exams have been tentatively scheduled for June 8, June 15, June 22, and June 30. On exam days, the class will be divided into two periods. During the first period (roughly 30-40 minutes), we will have a regular class lecture session. During the second period (roughly 50-60 minutes), the exam will be given.

Quizzes and Other Exercises: Short quizzes and other exercises will occasionally be given to monitor and evaluate students' understanding of course material. All quizzes will be announced at least one class session before the date of the quiz. Grades on quizzes and other exercises will be averaged together. This average will count for 20 percent of the student's final grade.

Make-Up Assignments: Students will be allowed to make up missed assignments only with the consent of the professor. Ordinarily, the professor will accept make-up assignments only in cases of unavoidable student absences, such as those caused by illness or by a death in the immediate family. Students may be required to document the causes of their absences before the make-up work will be accepted by the professor.
