Department Guidelines

In order to give the instructor the greatest flexibility in assigning a grade for the course, grades will be based on various instruments at the instructor’s discretion. However, to maintain instructional integrity there must be four class exams or three class exams and a project. A final exam will be given if there are less than four exams or a project may be substituted for the final exam if there are four in-class exams. At least 60% of the grade will be based on quantifiable work (exams, homework, quizzes, etc.). The remaining portion of the grade may be based on quantifiable work, attendance, projects, journal work, etc., at the instructor's discretion.

The following is a compilation of acceptable grading instruments: In class exams and a final, attendance, homework or quizzes, research paper, modeling projects on the calculator or computer. Other projects or assignments may be assigned as deemed appropriate at the instructor's discretion.
