is the purpose of the course? (Seldom asked, but a good question
to ask in any course.)
A: This is explained briefly in the notes on the text.
Q: I did poorly on the ____ "hour" exam, but I did well on everything else. Does this mess up my grade?
A: Probably not. When I assign course grades, I try to take into account the fact that someone may have had a bad day on ONE of the two "hour" exams.
Q: I did well on my exams but had trouble with homework because it takes me time to learn the material.
A: If you did the homework, but did much poorer on it than on the exams, I'll make allowances.
Q: I did well on my exams, but never bothered to do any homework. Does this mess up my grade?
A: Probably. The homework is 15% of your grade.
Q: I didn't understand some material in Chapter ___ at first, so I did poorly on that homework. What can I do?
A: The lowest homework grade is dropped.
Q: Can I be excused from homework ___ because of ___?
A: Homework is excused for reasons similar to those which allow you to get an incomplete in a course; e.g. health problems. The lowest homework (which is zero for a missing homework) is dropped.
