How to calculate your grade

If you take the course for credit/no credit, a grade of C or higher is required to pass the course.

Late work: will not be accepted - the facilities are not available for the make-up of missed labs.

 

All make-up and extra credit work must be submitted by 10 AM, May 7 - see below for instructions


Missed exams: The facilities are not available for make-up work.

Missed instructions or assignments?
1) from at least one other student in class:
obtain copies of notes, assignments, instructions, announcements, etc.
2) discuss and study the material with a student
who was present for the material that you missed
3) if the assignment was out of the lab manual - work the assignment and
check your answers with the answer key on reserve in the library
4) check with the instructor -- during the instructor's office hours
5) bring specific questions to the instructor's office hours

Late work: will not be accepted.

Make-up labs: the facilities are not available; consequently, students must complete different home-study assignments from the lab manual.

All makeup work is due within one week of the missed lab.

Allowable number of missed classes, drop procedures, etc.:
At the instructor's discretion, the student may be dropped after 2 missed labs sessions that have not been made-up through the appropriate procedures (and within a week of the missed second missed lab).
The preceeding does not imply that the student will be dropped.
Drop procedures: It is the student's responsibility to drop the course before any appropriate deadlines (e.g., NGR - no grade of record, W - withdrawal, or the end of the course). If a student's name appears on the final term roster, the student will recieve the letter grade which reflects the student's course work compared to all that was required.

Extra Credit: see the instructor during the instructor's office hours

Important Note:
All of the above are subject to revision at the instructor's discretion.
