Final grades will be determined by your total points weighted according to this distribution. Grades will be curved based on relative student performance. Students who successfully complete all of the homework and do reasonably well on the exams should receive a B. Students with high exams scores and who do well on the assignments will receive an A. The instructor reserves the right to modify the curve to meet minimum competency requirements.
All assignments must be completed alone unless otherwise stated. No Late assignments will be accepted without prior approval. Students are expected to keep up with the assigned reading. The class participation component will measure whether this is done or not.
On the first incident, students who share their work (even with best intentions) will receive no credit for that work -- both the giver and the receiver will receive no credit. On the second violation, I will strongly consider failing them in the course.
