Exams:

Make-up tests will be given only if the student has a valid reason
for missing the test, and if the student notifies the instructor
as soon as possible, preferably before the test. If a student
misses a test and does not have a valid excuse, the student will
receive a zero for that test.

Exams will consist of 4 to 8 problems. Exams may also consist
of essay, multiple choice, true/false, matching, and fill-in-the-blank
questions.

Quizzes:

Every Monday there will be a five question quiz that will cover concepts
from the previous week’s homework. There is no partial credit on the quizzes.
There will be 12 quizzes during the semester and your score will be computed
using the highest 10. No make-up quizzes will be given. If you miss a quiz
you will receive a zero and that will be one of the dropped quizzes. Quizzes
will be given at the beginning of class and will be five minutes long.

Homework:

Homework assignments will be given at the end of every class period.

Project:

The project will be assigned with approximately 7 to 8 weeks left
in the semester. This project must be the original work of each
student. The student will be required to submit a typed paper
that shows the analysis that was performed, discusses any assumptions
made in the analysis, and discusses any conclusions drawn from
the analysis. The project will be an actual engineering problem
that either I or another engineer actually had to solve. The
specifics of the problem and report will be given when the project
is assigned.

Withdrawals:
