Dr. Huskey
Spring 2009 Office Hours (218 Olson Hall)

Friday 9:00 - 10:00 (Check the announcements section for occasional changes to this time).

Or by appointment (

The best way to contact Dr. Huskey is through email: . He rarely checks voice mail and he is often far from a phone.

Three 80-minute exams will count for 50% of the course grade, and a comprehensive final exam will count for the other 50% of the course grade. To avoid any need for make-up exams, the score on the final exam can be used to replace the lowest score of the 80-minute exams (or an 80-minute exam missed for any reason). Letter grades will be assigned according to the following scale (scores are percentages of the maximum possible points): A (100-85), B+ (84-80), B (70-79), C+ (69-65), C (64-55), D (54-45), F (44-0).

If you need assistance, study tips, or have questions about the course material or homework problems, see Dr. Huskey during his office hours, meet with him at the end of a lecture period, make an appointment to see him at times other than his office hours, or contact the Learning Center for other options.

The Learning Center in Bradley Hall can provide various types of assistance:

  1. Free Tutoring. If there are enough requests at the Learning Center for tutors, free tutoring will be provided.
  2. Academic Coaching. If you would like advice on how to develop better study habits and skills, make an appointment with a learning assistant at the Learning Resource Center.
