  • Assessment and Requirements

    Assessment of Academic Achievement

    All students will be required to complete a comprehensive final examination that assesses the learning of all the course objectives.  This exam must be weighted in a manner so that this exam score is worth a minimum of fifteen percent of the final course grade.  This exam is to be a common exam administered to all sections of TAMA-130.

    General Course Requirements and Recommendations

    Calculator Use:  Students are encouraged to bring a calculator to all class sessions.  Any scientific calculator will be sufficient for this course.

    Texts

    Texts, handouts, and/or workbooks will be determined by the TAE Department.
