If you know you are going to miss a class, I need to know ahead of time (prior
to the class or session)
As we go through the semester, if there is
anything that is going to affect
your performance in the class I need to know about it.
If something happens, don't just
stop coming to class; contact me and we'll make
arrangements if at all possible.
All assignments are due on the specified date/time. Only previously excused late work will be accepted. Unexcused late work
will receive a zero.
All work handed in for grading is to be your best individual work;
it is OK to use study groups and classmates as resources.
However, since you, as an individual, will be receiving the grade,
the work used to evaluate your progress must be done by you alone.
Copied and/or plagiarized work will not be tolerated and will be dealt
with severely. Copying from the internet is also forbidden. You may use
any sources you wish, but you MUST use your own words and you must give references.
