Students missing class due to participation in athletic or other school-sponsored events must turn in all homework PRIOR to their absence. Other exceptions: students who miss class due to an extended illness requiring hospitalization will be allowed to make up missed homework assignments.
Classroom Rules of Conduct: Make-Up Examinations
Three lecture examinations and one final are scheduled for this semester. BE THERE! The final must be taken on the scheduled date. Do not make early travel arrangements! A make-up exam will be given ONLY if the student contacts the instructor before the next scheduled class meeting and gains approval from the instructor for a make up exam (584- 6475 OR firstname.lastname@example.org).
Students will be allowed one make-up test. If the student misses two tests, they will be allowed one make-up and the second missed test will be scored as a zero.
Exceptions: Athletes and students who know they will be missing class due to other school sponsored events or other reasons deemed acceptable by the instructor can make arrangements to take the exam before the miss.
Extra Credit = NO!!!!! It is a students responsibility to get work done on time in an acceptable form, therefore no extra credit will be given during this course.
The Please Don't List- 1. show up late. 2. If you do show up late do it quietly. 3. Do not go to the bathroom every class period. 4. Do not talk loudly to others during class. 5. Turn cell phones off or to vibrate. 6. Do not ask me for my book or notes. 7. Please do not ever feel like you can not talk to me. I get paid to help you!
