Projects: You will be designing a group project to gather information and use the tools we learn in class to

Homework and Quizzes: I will be giving frequent, unannounced quizzes. Most quizzes will be take-home
quizzes and some will be in-class quizzes. For in-class quizzes, you will only be able to take the quiz if
you are in class. For take-home quizzes, if you are able to obtain a copy of the quiz before it is due, you
can complete the quiz. Take-home quizzes are due the next class. THERE WILL BE NO MAKE UP
QUIZZES! There will also be occasional homework assignments. The average of your 10 best
quizzes/homeworks will count as one test.
Tests: There will be three hour tests and a Final Exam for this course. Make-up tests are possible if there
has been adequate notice, but should not be assumed. Students with special needs are responsible for
talking to me about necessary arrangements for any accommodations.
Violations of Academic Honesty, such as copying, plagiarizing, and faking data
will not be tolerated. The rules are clear and the consequences stiff.
