Four regular lecture exams
, video points,
the set of chemistry assignments,
the
Happy Book,
and Exam 4 attendance
comprise t

(75% of the course). Again, grades will
NOT be emailed to students.



The lab instructor will provide a lab
schedule and instructions concerning lab
assignments. Students must print the lab
instructions prior to each lab
session.


The lowest lecture exam score is dropped
(a missed exam is the lowest score).


If
two

exams are missed, a grade of zero
will be recorded for the second missed
exam.



The laboratory portion of the course
comprises 25% of the final grade.
Howev
er, a grade of 70% or higher in the
lab portion of the course is required in
order to pass the course.


Failure to achieve 70% or more in the lab
portion will result in a grade of "F" for
the entire course regardless of the grade
