All exams except for the final exam are two hour exams and will
meet from 7:00-9:00P on the indicated dates.
Counts 150 points of total 450. Coverage to be announced.
Each of the three interim exams given during the semester has
a maximum possible score of 100 points. The maximum possible score on the final
examination is 150 points, giving a grand total of 450 possible points. The instructor
will provide an approximate or orientational curve after each of the interim exams,but
the final course grade will be determined solely from the total scores for the
course, applying an appropriate "curve" which is based in large part upon accumulated
experience in this course.
Requests for regrading of exams will be honored up to a deadline
of one week after the graded exam is returned to the student. Students requesting
regrades must attach a cover sheet to their exam indicating what question or questions
are at issue and ,briefly, what the issue is. The exam and its cover sheet must
be handed to the lecture TA, who will privately consider the validity of the regrade
request and return the regraded exam to the student.No exam will be regraded after
the one week deadline, but corrections of numerical (addition) errors can be requested
at any time.
Scholastic dishonesty will not be tolerated and will be prosecuted
to the fullest extent. You are expected to have read and understood the current
issue of General Information Catalog, published by the Registrar's Office,
for information about procedures and about what constitutes scholastic dishonesty.
