Each meeting there will be in-class work which must be attempted faithfully though not necessarily mastered. There will be 12 short tests given during the semester on which students will display their mastery of the course. The Final Exam will be held on the day assigned by the University during final exam week. Homework assignments will be given each class and questions on the homework will be answered at the start of each class before the test. There will be no make up tests, but the lowest test grade will be dropped from the grade calculation.
