Evaluation Method:

Assignments will contribute to 85% of the total grade for the class. See the course schedule for the weight of each assignment. Late assignments will not be accepted. Attendance will contribute to 15% of the total grade for the class. Three or more absences will result in an automatic failing grade for the class. Some of the smaller assignments, in addition to the two larger projects, will require student presentations. Students are expected to be prepared to present their work at the beginning of class – preparing work or pinning up material during class, etc. will not be accepted. Students are expected to engage in the presentations of each others’ work. All assignments are due at the beginning of class. Late assignments will not be accepted unless arrangements are made with the instructor prior to the due date. Attendance to each class is mandatory; any absences must be approved by the instructor prior to that class. Students are encouraged to work on the assignments in the lab at the same time. Minor technical problems can become overwhelming when learning new tools, and the assistance of classmates will prove invaluable. This encouragement is not, however, to be construed as acceptance of collaborative work. Each student is expected to submit individual work for each assignment.
