Class Breaks for Fall 2016


There is only one break in classes during the Fall 16 term at Jackson College, Thanksgiving Break.  Thanksgiving Break is from November 23-27, 2016.  We do have classes on Monday and Tuesday of that week and missing due to your personal travel plans is not an excuse for missed work or make-up exams.

Penultimate Grade Sheets for CEM131/BIO161

Prior to the Finals I am putting together gradesheets.  All drop grades have been accounted for and everything but the Final accounted for.  The new sheets have the following new columns.

  • Current Grade: Letter Grade without accounting for a Final
  • No Final: Percentage in the course if you do not take the final (i.e. 0/100 on Final)
  • To Keep:  The percentage grade you need on the final to keep your “Current” letter grade.
  • To Go Up: The percentage grade you need on the final to go up to the next letter grade. (if blank it is mathematically impossible to go up).
