DEPARTMENTAL FINAL EXAMINATION REQUIREMENT FOR MATH 1530:
GRADING FOR THE COURSE: The grade will be based on a possible 1000 points (200
from the Final Examination, 100 from Capstone Project, 50 from practice
quizzes and 650 determined by the instructor). The scale follows:
PRACTICE QUIZZES: There are 16
chapter quizzes in Desire2Learn (D2L). There is no time commitment and
unlimited attempts to complete these quizzes but you must get at least 75% of
the questions correct on a chapter quiz to get full credit (3 points) on that
quiz. You will receive 2 points for
attempting all quizzes. All quizzes must be taken one hour prior to the final exam. BONUS POINTS FOR GOOD ATTENDANCE (after the first week of classes): You may receive a bonus for good attendance (we dont count absences occurring during the first week of the semester). An absence can only be excused by presenting Instructor with an official ETSU Class Absence Authorization For Student Participation In A UniversitySponsored Activity prior to the occurrence of the absence. No other types of absences will be excused even if you have an impeccable reason for not being in class. We interpret the number of absences recorded for a student as an indication of the amount of lecture material they have missed during the semester, not as a critical judgment of that students character, motivation and honesty. Bonus points will be awarded in the following manner:
5 absences or more
Zero bonus points
4 absences
10 bonus points
3 absences
20 bonus points
2 absences
30 bonus points
