Grading will be based on a series of quizzes (20%), a midterm (40%), and a final (40%).  Borderline grades will be deter­mined by class participation.  The first exam will be March 13.  The final will be on Tuesday, May 20 at 11:00.  The quizzes will be unannounced.  Students will be able to drop their two lowest quizzes.  Make-up quizzes will not be given; that is why you get to drop two of them.  Make-up exams will only be given with a medical note from a doctor.
