Directions for assignments and exams.
Assignments consist of three topics, each topic to be developed in a concise paragraph.
When you write your assignments and exams, make sure that what you write is based exclusively on the material covered in class, and make specific references (direct text citations for the exams) to the readings covered in class.
Do not write information that is not relevant to the topics. Be direct and concise. Before you submit your assignments get rid of anything that does not belong to the topic. Understand the topics before you write, and check it after to make sure you do not go off topic. If you notice that you are writing a summary of a plot, you are off topic.
If you receive a low grade for your assignments or exams, you were too vague, or failed to limit your answer to the given topics. Do not repeat the same
mistake in future assignments and exams.
The course grade is based on the two assignments (13% each) and the two exams (36% each)
Exams and assignments must be submitted through Safe Assign
