Weekly Quizzes- These are designed for you to have a detailed knowledge of the chapter before completing the homework. These quizzes are online and will assess in depth your knowledge of the chapter content. Each quiz will be in the week’s folder. I have set these up to where you lose 10% for each day late you take it. So, unlike the weekly homework, this can be done late for reduced credit. Quizzes are worth 20 points each.

Behavior Change Project – You will be working on this project throughout the entire semester. It will be turned in on four separate occasions that are worth 25 points each. Please see the project guide on the home page and in the week 3 folder for the specifics of this project. Late submissions of each section of this project will not be accepted.

Community Engagement- As part of the fitness and community components of this class, you will be required to participate in a community project of your choice. See the project guide on the home page and in the week 14 folder about the specifics of this assignment.
