The course grade and successful completion of the course will be based on the following components:

1.      Attendance-Participation           5

2.      Quiz-                                           5

3.      First  Mid-term Exam               15

4.      Second Mid- term Exam            15

5.      Final Exam                                        60 (20 Oral Exam +40   

Written Exam)

             …………………………………………………

Total                               100                                                  

Attendance: You cannot learn as well if you are not in class. Attendance is mandatory and your final course grade will be lowered for excessive absences. Two or more unexcused absences will result in your final average being lowered by 10 points (example: 83 lowered to 73) for each unexcused absence. Tardiness counts toward class time missed. Each time you are tardy, it counts as 1/2 hour of class missed. If you arrive after the roll has been taken, you will be counted as "absent" unless you speak with the instructor immediately after class. An excused absence is one for which you have notified your instructor in advance, if reasonably possible, and you have evidence (court summons, doctor's note, etc.) supporting your reason for being absent. You must present the supporting evidence to the instructor during first class after you return. NOTE: If you stop attending, you must officially drop the course through the records office. Failure to officially drop will result in an F for the course on your transcript.

Quizzes:  Quizzes will be weekly and will test your knowledge about the previous lecture.

Exams: You will have three exams (First Term Exam, Second Term Exam and Final Exam Written and Oral).

Assessments: will be structured to test your understanding.

No makeup exams will be given for excused or unexcused absences. If you miss an exam with an excused absence, your final exam grade will be weighted more heavily to compensate for one missing exam. If you miss an exam and the absence is unexcused, or you miss a second exam, you receive a zero for that exam.
