Seminar presentations form 30% of the total mark of the course. Seminars must have the appropriate format.
Participation forms 10% of the total mark of the course.
Participation will be assessed each seminar day — i.e., the first day of each week. The average value of the highest 8 marks for each student will be used as the participation mark.
Participation in each seminar is marked as follows:
Questions Asked (5 marks):
Students must hand in a set of 5 questions about the material being covered that day. This should be done in the form of a hardcopy, which is to be handed in at the beginning of the seminar.
Questions drawn at random from the set may be used during the discussion part of the seminar.
Note: If the student cannot attend the class, the questions can be sent to me via email. However, they will be accepted only if they arrive before the beginning of the seminar.
Contribution to Discussion (5 marks):
Students are expected to contribute to the discussions of the seminar topic—asking questions, raising concerns, expressing opinions, etc. Full contribution will be given a mark of 5; no contribution will be given a mark of 0.
Reports form 30% of the total mark of the course. Reports must have the appropriate format.
A final exam forms 30% of the total mark of the course.
