Some very good advice: Few students are as skilled as they could be at studying efficiently. Make your first stop this page of suggestions.
Exams: All exams will be short answer/essay style. There will be four exams, worth 100 points each. Exams will cover both lecture and lab materials. Your lowest exam score will be dropped, making the point total for exams 300.Missed exams: There are no make up exams in this class. If you miss an exam, that automatically becomes the exam score which you drop. If you miss a second exam, talk to me about the possibility of dropping, since it will no longer be possible for you to pass the class.
Presentations: Participation in a verbal, team presentation is required to pass this class.
Labs: Attendance in lab is required. You are expected to be in class, on time, for every lab period of the quarter. Presentation labs carry a 25 point penalty for absence. Sufficient lab absences (more than 2) will be grounds for failure in this class. Lab reports will be assigned for most lab activities.
Reading: You will be required to read and analyze six articles during the semester. We will read a seventh article as practice during the first week of the semester. Follow the link for details of these assignments.
