I have been teaching several years and I have never given a student an F. I DONT' BELIEVE IN GIVING F's. However, I also don't give A's, B's, C's, or D's. So what do you get in my class? You get what you earn. You work very little don't expect great divdends. You work hard, it will reflect in your grade.
Everything in class will be counted for a grade.
- Participation and Classwork 20%
- Homework 20 %
- Quizzes 15%
- Tests 30%
- 9 weeks exam 15%

Hence, homework will be due immediately at the beginning of class (*on its given due date). Incomplete or missing assignments will be deducted two letter grades (*assuming all work is correct). After the second day homework will NOT be accepted.

Such assignments will be due the following day we meet (*). If you are absent 2 or more consecutive days please contact me to make necessary arrangements. THIS IS YOUR RESPONSIBLITY!
