(Opportunities for extra credit may be given. I have been known to give extra credit points to
students who participate in the discussions and answer questions in the “Question and Answer”
section of the course under “Discussion Board”) If you have a borderline grade at the end of the
term, participation in the discussion will be used to determine if you get the points for the next
highest grade.)
