  • Tests and Final:

    There will be a total of 3 tests during the semester and a cumulative final exam.


Making up tests

Making-up tests:

  • You can reschedule a test for a different time or day ONLY if you make arrangements with me in advance and only if you have a valid reason for the change. In such a situation, you take the test up to two days before or after the date scheduled for all students.

  • The final exam will be given once and only once in class. You may take it early if you inform me in advance and you have a valid reason for changing your exam date.

  • Homework will be due regularly. Please note that each homework assignment will be recorded as submitted but will not be graded. There will be regular in-class short quizzes with questions from the topics on the homework.

  • Late homework will not be recorded as submitted.

  • A copy of the homework schedule will be handed out to you as well as updated on Blackboard. Please complete these assignments as indicated. We will review the previously assigned homework questions at the beginning of the next class period if you feel that a problem or problems need further examination.
