Grading Policy:

Students will be assessed through class participation, their performance on the exams, quizzes and assignments.  The completion of the assignments and activities will prepare you for each exam.  You are expected to complete each assignment by the next class meeting so that you are ready to ask questions in class.  You should see me for assistance as soon as an exercise is not understood, but not without first seriously attempting to do the problem on your own.  It is highly recommended that you also take advantage of the various tutoring services offered on campus.
