Educational Philosophy: I believe that most people learn best by actually working with and using the information presented in class. To do this, we will have a number of assignments that will give the students an opportunity to work through some of the difficult course topics.

Late Submission of Course Materials:
Homework must be turned on a specified date and time.
Each student is allowed TWO late submissions for the entire semester. It is intended to be used for lateness due to family problems, sickness, printer or diskette malfunctions, losing the homework, transportation problems, forgetting to bring the (completed) homework to class, etc. Once this allowance is used up, no further late submission is allowed.
If an assignment is to be due on Wednesday, a late allowance extends the assignment deadline to Friday 8:00am of the same week. The instructor will inform you of the late due date if an assignment is not due on Wednesday.
Additionally, once the solution key of an assignment is posted, I won't be able to accept a late submission.

No calculator, cell phone, or any electronic device is allowed in any test.
You will be allowed to take a make-up test only if you give me a note that is signed by a doctor, sports coach, or funeral director, and the signer's phone number is on the note. Make-up tests will tend to be harder than the original tests. All make-up tests must be taken within one week of the original test's day.
