You will use your CPS transmitter to answer Multiple Choice 
questions during the lecture period.  Some questions will 
just be for practice, or used to measure the initial class 
knowledge of a topic; those questions will have time limits 
of 30-45 seconds.  Other answers will be graded; those 
questions will have time limits of 60 seconds.  You may
always discuss the question with the students seated nearby,
but the answer that you enter should always be your own.
Correct answers will receive 1 point and incorrect answers 
will receive 0.7 points; so there is a very small penalty for
an incorrect answer.  You will need a small hand calculator
to answer some quiz questions; please bring one to each 

  For the first three lectures, all CPS questions will be 
considered practice questions, as you learn to use your CPS 
transmitters.  Beginning THUR July 9, at least some CPS 
questions will be graded.  Your CPS transmitter will not work 
unless you have registered it at www.einstruction.com.  The 
instructions for registering your CPS clicker and the class 
codes you need for that registration are available at our 
CPS Information page.

  There are expected to be about 50 graded CPS questions
over the course of the session, so about 50 CPS points
will be possible.  However, 45 CPS points (or about 90%
of all possible CPS points should there be more or less
than 50 questions) are all that are required to receive
an overall CPS grade of 100%; i.e. your CPS percentage is
your total CPS points divided by 0.45 with a maximum of
100%.  Your CPS percentage for the session will count 5% 
of your overall class grade.  

  Since you only have to get 90% of all possible CPS points
in order to receive a CPS grade of 100%, there are no
make ups for missed CPS questions for any reason.  Exception:
ONCE (and only once) during the semester, you may report to
me by email that you were present in lecture but that you
did not receive the proper amount of CPS points (perhaps
you forgot your clicker or forgot to check the batteries).
Just tell me in the email how many CPS points you deserved
for that day and I will give you credit.  You may only do
this ONCE, and I must receive your email within one school
day of the relevant lecture.

NO OTHER. Use of another student's transmitter is a case of 
academic dishonesty, just exactly like cheating on a test. 
Any and all students involved in any such incidents will 
automatically receive an E for the course, and may be 
referred to the Dean for further sanctions.
