HOMEWORK ASSIGNMENTS:

Professional presentation of homework assignments is required.  Professional presentation consists of neat and organized solution of problems on one side of 8.5"x11" papers.  Any homework not complying with professional standards will not be graded and will be assigned zero credit.  The homework assignments are due one week after they are assigned.  Late homework assignments will not be accepted.

 

EXAMS:

All students must take all exams including the final exam.  Only extenuating circumstances will be accepted as excuse for missing an exam.  Health related excuses require medical reports and the signature of a physician that provided treatment.
