Text: ......................... An Introduction to Physical Science, by Shipman, Wilson & Todd, 13th edition

It is highly recommended that you purchase this book. Note that other editions of this book will have different questions at the end of each of the chapters which may cause you issues while studying.

Attendance:.............. This will be taken each class and will count for 5% of your final grade. Please be aware that if you stop coming to class it will be your responsibility to drop the class. If you stop coming to class and do not take the final you will have earned an F in the class.

Class Description:.... This course is designed for non-science majors. It meets the General Education requirements for Natural Sciences. This survey course covers the general principles of Physics, Chemistry and Astronomy.

Homework: ............... Homework will be given for each chapter and will count for 15% of your grade. The test and final questions will come from the homework. The assignments will be collected and graded. The grading will be based upon the work shown and not just for the answers.

Tests: ....................... Several tests will be given and will count for 50% of your final grade. The test questions will primarily come from the questions at the end of each chapter of the book. Please note that the problems will be slightly changed from the homework questions. Each test is designed to take about 30 minutes to complete.

Final:......................... The Final will count for 30% of your final grade. The final questions will be taken from the tests and will be slightly changed. The final will be cumulative and cover all tests. Failure to take the final exam will result in an automatic fail in the course. If you decide to stop coming to class, it is your responsibility to drop the class.

Grading: ................... The grading will be performed on a semi-modified curve. The grade you will earn will be based on the following scale:

A 90% - 100%

B 75% - 89%

C 60% - 74%

D 45% - 59%

F 0% - 44%

 

I guarantee that you will receive at least the above grade if not higher due to class performance. You will be provided with the grades periodically during class through the email address you provided during registration.
