Requirement/Grading

There are three graded assignments during the semester with the following weights.

Group presentation: 40%.

Midterm: 30%.

Any request of absence for midterms must be submitted in writing before 9:00am on the exam day, except for medical emergencies.

Final: 30%. Cumulative, but with emphasis on material covered after Midterm #2. Any request of absence must be filed according to university rules.



Grading disputes may arise. With the exception of arithmetic errors, and in order to avoid problems associated with self-selection, disputes involving points scored on individual questions will NOT be considered. However, if you wish, the entire assignment will be re-graded. This re-grading may result in either a higher or lower number of points being scored.

Requests for re-grading must be submitted in writing to the instructor within one week of the assignment first being returned.
