EXTRA CREDIT: NUTRITION STUDY GROUPS
To encourage students to study together in groups, students already working together on the Ergogenic Aid Project will also serve as study groups. How the study groups functions is decided upon by its members. Extra credit is based upon how the group as a whole performs on each exam. If the average score of the group is between 70-79%, then each member of that group receives an additional 1 point to each of their scores for that exam. If the average score is between 80-89% or 90-100%, then each member receives an additional 3or 4 points respectively. This is the only extra credit offered for this class. Take advantage of it.
