Your attendance is required
for the full duration of class. To help motivate students towards this goal, up
to 12.5 points will be earned

Late Submission of Course Materials:
Mr. Wiemann does NOT allow makeup exams. It is the
student’s responsibility to take the exam on or before the scheduled date. If the
score on your final exam is greater than the score earned on one of your class
exams, I will replace your lowest exam
score (not including quizzes) with the score earned on the final exam. For this
reason, it becomes an integral part of
the student’s responsibility to be there on an exam day.
Classroom Rules of Conduct:
Please refer to the Student
Handbook for current policy for academic honesty. An incident of cheating consists, but not limited
to, copying someone else’s work and accepting it as your own work. AT NO POINT IN THISCOURSE IS IT ACCEPTABLE TO SUBMIT SOMEONE ELSE’S
WORK AS YOUR OWN. You are more than welcome to converse about
how to solve a problem; however, you must submit your own work as the final
submission of the assignment.
