COURSE SYLLABUS
- We will ask all students to submit test grades on sheets of paper so that a test average can be
calculated and used as a measure of how effective the workshop is. Also, we can identify
students' weaknesses in quizzes between exams.
- Old practice exams and extra practice worksheets will be available via Blackboard for students
to use as test preparation. Solutions to those exams will also be posted. For most of the exams,
the answer key with the explanations for the solutions will be available. We will review some of
the more recent tests during the Friday or Saturday Review sessions.

Grading
If you attend 50% or more of workshop sessions, your workshop grade will be at least the same
as your lecture grade. Your workshop grade may increase or decrease by up to one letter grade
based upon the frequency of your attendance and your level of participation in the workshop.
The letter grade increase will depend upon the recommendation of your facilitator and assistant
facilitator.
If you attend less than 50% of your workshop sessions, you may receive an F for the
workshop course. Workshop success is dependent on your active participation. Attendance
benefits you and everyone else enrolled!
If you drop the lecture, you MUST drop the workshop.
In addition, please note that dropping a workshop counts toward the UH mandate 6 W rule.
