There are four major components of this class: nutrition

Lectures and discussions in class

Five assignments to be completed outside of class and

turned in during class

Three exams based on in-class lecture and discussions

Six unannounced quizzes given in class

Details of the course are in the course syllabus, which (along

with other course information) is available through the course website http://course1.winona.edu/ethompson/206.htm

Last spring (2012): 67% of the students earned A’s or B’s

37% of the students earned C’s, D’s, or F’s

(almost all due to skipping class,

not bothering to study enough, and/or

not turning in assignments)

I also this should not be a difficult class.recognize that some of you may have special circumstances which can affect your performance in this class such as disabilities, health concerns, and parenting responsibilities.

I am willing to provide some flexibility on attendance, quizzes, exams, and assignments if I am aware of these in sufficient time

to make appropriate accommodations. Please contact me early

in the semester to discuss these and avoid problems.

The university also provides many resources to help students with special needs succeed, some of which are listed at http://course1.winona.edu/ethompson/specialcircumstances.htm
