Late Submission of Course Materials:
 

Assignments, handed in late, will be reduced 10 points per day. The Mid-Term test will have a one-week make-up time before a “zero” grade will be given. The Final exam will only have one day in which the student must make-up the test before the grade becomes a “zero.” Homework must be turned in at the beggining of the class that is due.
