Homework assignments are worth
ten
points
each
and will be assigned and colle
cted
on a regular basis.

Laboratory
assignments
are worth twenty points each and typically cannot be made up. Exams are worth
one hundred points each and will be given during
class
, where you
should have plenty of time
to
complete them. The final exam will

be a common exam on topics which have received emphasis in all
sections and will be held December 2

Attendance
:

Students are responsible for attending class and taking the exams when scheduled.
L
aboratory sessions
cannot be made up. Late h
omework will bear a 10% penalty each week after the due date, and may not
be promptly graded. Anyone missing an exam will have one week to take the exam in the Testing Center.


Classroom Conduct
:

Please be to class on time and refrain from using cell phon
es or other disruptive devices during class. If
the instructor finds your conduct inappropriate, you may be asked to leave the class.


AMERICANS WITH DISABILITIES ACT (ADA)

If you have a disability, please feel free to set up an appointment with the instru
ctor to discuss
“reasonable” accommodations which might be of assistance. For additional information and/or assistance,
please contact
