Homework Policy: Homework will be assigned regularly, but will not be collected or graded. Answers to all homework exercises will be provided.

Grading Policy: Final grades will be determined by a weighted average of three test scores. First two tests are worth 30% each and the final is 40%. The tests are closed book and notes, and cumulative. You may use one 8 ½” x 11” sheet of notes for the first two (2) tests and three sheets for the final exam.

Test 1: July 7 (11:55-12:55), Test 2: July 21 (11:55-12:55), Final Test: August 4 (10:45-12:55).

Grading Scale: Final grades will be computed using the scale

90 – 100% : A; 85 – 89%: A-; 80 – 84%: B+; 75 – 79%: B; 70 – 74%: B-; 65 – 69%: C+; 60 – 64%: C; 55 – 59%: C-; 50-54%: D+; 45-49%: D; 40-44: D-; 0-39%: F.

Web access: Course materials, homework assignments and announcements will be posted on http://blackboard.fau.edu. Students may access the site by logging in according to the menu on the web site. You will need your SOCIAL SECURITY OR STUDENT NUMBER.
