**Attendance:**Students are expected to attend every scheduled class, and to be familiar with the University Class Attendance policy as it appears in the General Catalog. It is the student's responsibility to keep informed of any announcements, syllabus adjustments or policy changes made during scheduled classes. Students who are excessively absent may be "administratively dropped" from the course to make room for other students trying to get in. "Excessively" means 2 days in a row or any 4 days during the semester.**Exams:**There will be two tests and a final exam. The tests are scheduled for**Monday, October 9**and**Monday, November 27**in class. The University has scheduled the final exam for**Friday, December 15 from 2:00 - 4:00**.

Exams cannot be given at any other time. If, for whatever reason, a test is missed, the score for that test will be replaced with the score on the corresponding part of the final exam. A second missed test, or a missed final exam, will result in a score of 0.**Homework:**Homework, an essential component of the course, will be assigned and collected regularly. Problems will be graded and a final score equivalent to one test, 100 points, will be assigned.

Homework may be submitted by a single student or by any collection of members of a group.*Attaching your name to a homework paper indicates that you contributed to solving and writing up the problem and that you understand all aspects of the solution.*

For full credit, homework must be turned in at the beginning of class on the day it is due. Late homework will be accepted for grading until the beginning of the next class meeting, but will earn only 50% credit. Homework turned in later may be graded but will earn no points.**Quizes:**There may be occasional, unannounced quizes on basic material. Points for these quizes are "bonus" points, counted above and beyond the points for other course work. Coming to class and taking these quizes is thus always to the student's advantage.**W's and I's:**Students withdrawing from the course before October 13 will receive the grade W if they are passing at the time. Students will be considered to be passing at the time of withdraw if they have scored at least 50% on the work completed at that time.

The grade of I will be awarded only if__all__the following conditions are met:- The student has completed all but a small portion of the required work.
- The student has scored at least 50% on the work completed.
- The student has a valid reason for not completing the course on time.
- The student agrees to make up the material in a short period of time.
- The student asks for the incomplete before the final exam.

**Cheating:**Any instance of dishonest work (which includes turning in someone else's work with your name on it) will be treated in accordance with the policies stated in the General Academic Manual. Don't even think about it!
