The above syllabus is only an approximate guide relative to timing of lectures. To get the most out of lectures, students should read the material prior to the lecture. Subjects may be covered more slowly or more quickly as appropriate. The grading scale is a ten point grading scale. There will be 4 homework assignments of 25 points and 3 hourly tests plus the final . Extra credit assignments will be given to the classes as well. The apportionment of points is shown below:

These numbers account for the lecture portion of your grade. The lecture portion of your grade accounts for 75% of your grade while your performance in the 102+ lab accounts for the other 25% of your grade (an additional 167 possible points).

Hourly Tests:300 points
Homework:75 points
Final:100 points
Lab:158 points
Total Points:633 points

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

Students are strongly encouraged to attend all class meetings. Excused absences for tests include only illness (with a doctor's excuse), university functions, or a death in the immediate family. If you have other problems please contact Dr. Delaney prior to the test if possible.
