Every two weeks partnerships will submit a response to the "problem/activity
of the week." All cooperative problem work will be graded as
follows: 5 well done, 4 for OK, 3 acceptable,
or 1 unacceptable.
Summary work will be used along with the
problem of the week grades will be used in determining the 50 points allocated
for cooperative assignments.
Reality Quizzes  100 points 
Homework  60 
2 Midterm Examinations  200 points 
Cooperative work  40 points 
Final Examination  200 or 300 points 
Total  600 or 700 points 
You may use my office hours for some additional work on these background areas either as individuals or in small groups. My office time is also available to discuss routine problems from homework after they have been discussed in class and reality check quizzes as well as using technology. Representatives from groups with questions about the Problem of the Week are also welcome.
I will try to organize and support additional time with small (or
larger) groups of students for whom some additional work on these background
areas may improve their understanding of current coursework.
Regular use of my time outside of class should be especially useful
for students having difficulty with the work and wishing to improve through
a steady approach to mastering skills and concepts.
Don't be shy about asking for an appointment
outside of the scheduled office hours.
