EVALUATION
This course has both a lecture and a laboratory portion. The course grade will be computed as 75% from the lecture grade and 25% from the laboratory grade. The lecture grade will be determined by averaging 4 exams, 14 homework assignments, and one final exam, in addition to notebook and attendance assessments. Missed exams, or laboratory experiments cannot be made up. If you have a proper excuse, approved by the office of the Vice President for Academic Affairs, then the point value of the missed exam will be subtracted from the total exam percentage, and you will not lose points for missing the exam. If you do not have a proper, approved excuse, then you will receive a zero for the missed exam.
Assessments (i.e., exams, homework, and notebooks) will be evaluated and grades determined as soon as possible. Grades will not be given out over the phone or via email, nor will grades be discussed with any individual other than the student.
At the instructor's discretion, extra credit assignments may be offered for attending seminars and special events sponsored by the Natural Sciences Division. No projects or assignments will be given for extra credit. After the final exam, this course will
