Your grade will be based on your performance in four areas: (1) tests-2 midterms and a final exam. These will be fill in blank, short answer and objective questions (T/F and multiple choice); (2) problem sets--a total of 3-4 problem sets, discussion questions, and/or short essays. These will help you to acquire an active understanding of the material; (3) discussion-email response to questions in class; possible quizes; and (4) term paper--a 2,500 word term paper also described below. Weightings will be as follows: 2 midterms @15% each (total 30%), discussion=5%, problem sets = 20%, term paper = 20%, final exam = 25%. Grades will be assigned on a curve.
You will be required to complete 3 sets of homework. Each set will vary in scope and content though most can be completed in 1-2 hours. The purpose of these problem sets is to develop technical, analytical and writing skills.
