1.  The student will have daily outside reading, problem set assignments
   from required text(s), or instructor chosen supplementary materials.
2.  Instructional methodology may include, but not limited to: lecture,
   demonstrations, oral recitation discussion, supervised practice,
   independent study, outside project or other assignments.

Methods of Evaluation/Basis of Grade.
Writing: Assessment tools that demonstrate writing skill and/or require students to select, organize and explain ideas in writing.Writing
0 - 0%
This is a degree applicable course but assessment tools based on writing are not included because problem solving assessments and skill demonstrations are more appropriate for this course.
Problem solving: Assessment tools, other than exams, that demonstrate competence in computational or non-computational problem solving skills.Problem Solving
25 - 75%
Homework problems, Exams
Skill Demonstrations: All skill-based and physical demonstrations used for assessment purposes including skill performance exams.Skill Demonstrations
20 - 40%
Performance exams
Exams: All forms of formal testing, other than skill performance exams.Exams
5 - 25%
Multiple choice
Other: Includes any assessment tools that do not logically fit into the above categories.Other Category
0 - 15%

Representative Textbooks and Materials:
