Best 3 of 4 quizzes 10%
Midterm exams 40%
Final 40%
Grades
will be converted to a T score by the following formula,
T-score = (Exam Score- Class Mean)/
Class Standard Deviation
T-Score |

There
will be
4
quizzes, a midterm exams and a final.
The 4
quizzes will be unannounced. The lowest quiz grade will be excluded.
All
exams are open book, closed notes, closed homework.
Course
notes for the coming week will be posed on the course web site on Friday.
Homework
is due on Monday in class or my office before
Integrity Policy:
There is nothing more dishonorable for an
engineer, short of his work causing loss of life or property, than to present
the work of another as his own. This can
happen in patent applications, reports, presentations, and technical
papers. Dishonesty in course work is the
start of this slippery slope that ends in news stories such as we have seen
reported last year or worse. Pressure
may be felt in school however it is more difficult, not easier, to maintain
integrity in practice.
Presenting course work of another as your
own will result in a reduction in grade usually to an F.
