Students are expected to attend all class meetings. If you must be absent from class you are expected to complete class requirements (tests and/or homework assignments) prior to the absence. Students who miss a test should provide a valid excuse, otherwise you will not be allowed to make up the test. Tests should be made up within one week of their scheduled date. No final exam exemptions.
Students are expected to do their homework and participate in class. Homework problems will be collected frequently and graded.
Three 50-minute tests (09/25/98, 10/30/98, and 12/04/98) and a comprehensive exam (Saturday, December 19, 1998, 8:00AM-10:00AM). See the course content outline later for more detailed information.

If you feel that an error was made in the grading of a test, you should explain the error on a separate sheet of paper and return both it and the test to me within three class periods after the test is returned to you.

Course grade will be calculated as follows.
Tests 50%
Exam 30%
Homework 20%

The course letter grades will be calculated as follows.

90-100 A
80-89 B
70-79 C
60-69 D
0-59 F
