Daily, Weekly, Assignments and Participation Grades:
 
A class participation grade will be taken each and every class day. The quiz or assignment will be the participation grade if given. Otherwise, 25 will be given for attending and being on time. A 12.5 will be given if you are tardy. An unexcused absence will earn a grade of “ZERO”. The Midterm and Final Exams will include the participation grade for those days. 25% of the exam grade will be deducted if you are tardy. A grade of “ZERO” will be earned if you have an unexcused absence.

                                                                   

Participation Policy

A Student is expected to attend and participate during the scheduled period of instruction (lecture and lab). This begins with the first scheduled class day of the term. A student deemed a non-participant for more than 10% ( 1.5     days) of the lecture or 10% (1.5      days) of the lab periods, regardless of grades earned on assignments, will have to repeat the course. 
 
A student is considered tardy up to 15 minutes into the scheduled lecture or lab, and thereafter will be considered a non-participant for that period of instruction.
 
A sum of two tardies is equivalent to one non- participation period.

 

 Safety Procedures

Students are required to participate in a safety lecture prior to performing in the laboratory portion of the course. A written test will be given to each participating student covering the presented safety materials. Students must complete the safety test with 100% accuracy prior to receiving lab assignments.
 
All lecture and laboratory safety rules and regulations will be followed in every detail. Failure to comply with this policy will result in dismissal from class until further notice.
