and think about them before class Take outline notes only so you can listen Go over your notes after class Repeat examples done in class Test Preparation Go over class notes Attend the review and study the topics I review.

Look at all problems, examples, & questions. If after reading the question, you are unsure of it, then repeat it. Review as needed in text or other source Grading Policies The correct answer by itself is worth nothing.

Credit is based on your individual work and explanations. Recitation from the text or other sources is not an explanation. All calculations must begin with a written formula or concept. Grading Policies cont. Express homework final answers in the

form of a complete sentence, with the correct units and number of significant figures. disorganized, hard to read, will receive little or no credit. Exam Policies No makeup exams are given. However, one low or missed exam will be replaced by the Final
