Many files are now saved in the Portable Document Format (PDF), which was developed by Adobe for transferring electronic (digital or computer) forms. Adobe also has freeware that will allow you to read these forms. It is called Adobe Acrobat Reader, Adobe's PDF reading software.

The number of points that you can accumulate will determine grades. At the end of the term, you will "cash in" those points for your grade. Students can keep track of their own grades!!


  • Projects will usually count for 100 points or more (a rubric will be provided.)
  • Quizzes may count 10 or more points (some surprise quizzes are given!)
  • Homework usually counts 10 or 20 points.
  • Late homework may be passed in the next day for partial credit.
  • Open notebook quizzes will be given.
  • Individual and group projects will be assigned. You will not be punished if a group member does not do their work!
  • Good class participation and attitude will help your grade.
  • It is your responsibility to ask for make up work!
