__Evaluation__: Each instructor will determine the specific criteria for determining the final course grade. These criteria will be delineated in the first day handout provided to each student. Each instructor will give a comprehensive final exam during the assigned final exam period.

__Commonality__: All instructors will use the same textbook and cover all topics in the topical outline**. **All students will participate in at least two technology based lab activities. A computer lab with mathematical software is provided to facilitate collaboration and the use of technology.** **
