For All Science Courses


Evaluation of students will be by tests, periodic quizzes (to check on progress), and written papers. All lecture tests, lab tests, quizzes and papers, including the final exam, will be of equal value in computing the final numerical grade for the semester. 75% of the final grade will be from lecture tests and 25% from lab.
