Start DateEnd DateLast Date to AddDrop Grade RequiredDrop Deadline08/16/1012/17/1008/29/1009/11/1011/19/10Late Work LATE WORK WILL NOT BE ACCEPTED!!Late assignments will not be accepted under any circumstances. If you cannot attend class, it is your responsibility to ensure that your assignment is turned in. There will be no make up exams and no make up assignments. I will drop your lowest exam score during the semester, so you can effectively miss one exam without it affecting your grade.ALL ASSIGNMENTS ARE DUE THE DAY POSTED ON THE SCHEDULEBecause of this strict policy on late assignments and the understanding that you may have problems during the course of the class, I offer several opportunities for extra credit work both in class and outside of class. I strongly encourage you to take those opportunities in case the need may arise where you are unable to complete an assignment. The extra credit will not entirely cover the points of the assignment, but it will help to maintain your grade, if you should need to.
