Instructor notes: This is a hybrid course, with the lecture component conducted online and the lab component conducted on campus each week. The online portion of the class consists of weekly pre-tests (to be completed each week by Tuesday night), weekly post-tests (to be completed each week by Friday night), about 15 five-minute lecture videos each week (to be viewed whenever the student likes, as often as he/she likes), and a discussion board. The pre-tests and post-tests combined make up 5% of the overall grade. The on-ground meetings will be used to complete the weekly labs (20 % of your overall grade) and to administer the 6 quizzes (50% of your overall grade) throughout the semester. There are no makeups for missed labs or quizzes. The final exam is held during finals week on campus and is 25% of your overall grade.
