Academic dishonesty will not be tolerated in any form.

14 classes

Grading policy is subject to change per syllabus.

You must submit every paper and the term project/paper assignment to pass the class.

If you have an average >= 90% you will be assured an A. Otherwise your final grade depends on the performance of the class as a whole.

Final Exam - Optional 100 0% or 15% An optional Final Exam will be offered to those wishing to replace their class discussion grade. Will be given last day of class after student presentations are done.
