Bonus Point Opportunity:  You can attend up to two events and write a 2-3 page paper for extra credit.  Each paper is worth two points on your overall grade.  The following is a list of upcoming events which qualify:

Honors students in the Walton College have to present their thesis (schedule).  You can go to two presentations (which will count as one event) and write a report about the presentation and how you can relate it to the material we talked about in class.  You can write separate reports for each presentation with each report being about a page.  I have two caveats.  First, your own presentation cannot count for one of the two you attend.  Second, you cannot attend four presentations and count it for 2 events.         

 

Only approved electronic devices can be used during exams.  The use of graphing, programmable, or differentiating calculators, cell phones, lap tops, or hand-helds is PROHIBITED!    

Grades can be accessed through BlackBoard.  Students wishing to collect their assignments should come by my office.
