Attendance will only be taken during the first two weeks. However, it is a good idea e-mail Professor when you miss a class, to see if anything beyond the syllabus was covered.
After the second class, everyone is expected to remain in the same seat for the remainder of the semester. Unless you have special needs, I ask that all students sit in the first 3-4 rows, to facilitate communication.
Try to check your e-mail at least 2 hours before class, for last minute announcements. You will be provided with at least 2 days prior notice of any new reading assignments
You are encouraged to go on-line and visit the same websites I will be showing on the overhead projector during class.
The final examination is designed to be a 3 hour examination. None-the-less, you will be allowed up-to 4 hours to complete the examination. The examination consists of 100 points and may be divided into three sections:
You will find that the problems in the text book, or the questions from other schools, are good examples of the type of questions which you will be required to answer.
The final examination is open book. You may use the Text, your Statutes, Class Handouts and an Outline which you prepared (yourself or in collaboration with other students.).
You may take the examination prior to the 'officially' scheduled exam date, INCLUDING READING WEEK, if you wish. But, all examinations must be in the Registrar's office by the end of the final examination: 5 May 2005.
My grading will comply with the faculty grading policy passed 12/00, which essentially utilizes a curve philosophy. It has been my experience over last several years that those students who regularly attend and participate in class achieve a B, or greater.
