Attendance and Responsibility
Class attendance is mandatory. If you must miss a class for a legitimate reason please inform me early as possible so that we can plan appropriately and provide you with makeup materials.
Student laptops may not be open during class unless specifically requested. Please keep your phones away.
HomeworkThe best tip for doing well in the course is keeping up with the weekly assignments. The best way to do poorly is to not do the work.
QuizzesThere will be regular quizzes about the reading and lectures. These will either be done in the first 10 minutes of class or done through canvas to complete and bring to class. We will go over the answers in realtime. These reading quizzes will be quick and conceptual. If the quiz is done in class at the beginning, there is no opportunity to make up if you aren't there. Sotry. There will be 2 longer quizzes throug the semester (mid term and final). These will be done in class. Each quiz will consist of short problems or qualitative questions. For each quiz you will have 40 minutes to complete your individual work. You will then be assigned to a small group. You will then have 30 minutes to complete a collaborative group quiz (same questions). We will the use the remaining time to go over the answers. You will mark up in red pen your own quiz. You will turn in your individual quiz and the group quiz at the end of class. Your final quiz grade will be 2/3 individual and 1/3 group. Your final quiz grade will be 1/2 daily quizzes, 1/4 midterm and 1/4 final.
You are encouraged to work with others, but please do your own work. Please write the names of people you collaborate with on each of the assignments. It is expected that you could explain everything in your notebook.
