No makeup exams will be given. If one exam is missed, then a zero will be given. If you must miss an exam, then see me in advance to possibly take it early. The format of the exams will be similar to the homework and will consist mainly of problems or short answer questions. Obviously, cheating on the exam will not be tolerated and will result in a zero being given for that exam. Quizzes A closed book quiz will be given at the start of class on the days listed on the schedule on the previous chapter that was discussed. The quiz will be very similar to the quiz on the web site. You will be allowed to drop your lowest quiz. Class Attendance/cell phones/computers Refer to the policy handed out during class Homework Assignments (30 points)/Class Participation (20 points) The homework assignments will be questions and problems that are assigned at the end of the chapters. The specific questions and problems will be given during class. If you miss class it is up to you to get the assignment. You will turn the homework two times during the semester. Doing the homework is the best way to prepare for the exams and to do well in the class. Ten points will be determined by the Biblical example of project management and bringing in an article about project management. The other 20 points will be determined by grading the homework on the following basis each time it is collected: All problems attempted and all correct All the problems attempted and mostly correct Most of the problems attempted and mostly correct Some problems attempted Not turned in 10 points 7-9 points 5-9 points 1-9 points 0 points

Note: Just copying the in class review notes is not attempting the problem. Class participation will be graded; you are expected to be prepared for class and to take active part in the class discussions. Also you are expected to be able to answer the homework questions during the review time. Use the class time to get any of your questions answered on the homework or concepts that you did not understand. Microsoft Project Paper The main purpose of this paper and presentation is to apply and demonstrated your knowledge of the tools and principles of project management to a project of your choice. You will be using Microsoft Project to demonstrate many of the principles. The project detail will be given during the first month of class. Plagiarism Plagiarism is considered a serious offense. Any occurrence will result in a zero for the assignment and will be referred to the Academic Committee to determine if the student may remain in class or in school.
