1. Prerequisites: (Math 111, 140, or 220) and (Psyc 100)
2. Exams: Two exams will be given during the semester in addition to the final exam. Make-up exams will be given only with a valid excuse. Each exam will contribute 25% to the final grade. The final exam will contribute 25%. Homework and projects will contribute the remaining 25%.
3. Homework: Problems will be assigned throughout the semester. Some of these assignments will be collected (electronically) and graded (e.g., Excellent, Satisfactory, Unsatisfactory). The teaching assistant will be happy to go over the homework with you if you have any problems.
4. Projects: Assignments will be given throughout the semester to collect your own data and to analyze it. These projects will be collected for grading.
