In class exams, unannounced quizzes, hand in homework, and possibly a project will be averaged and the final grades will be assigned according to the average as:
Homework:
For each topic we discuss in class homework problems from the
textbook will be suggested. It is your responsibility to master
the problems in a timely manner. Test and quizzes questions
will be based on the problems. You are encouraged to ask
questions about and discuss the homework problems at the beginning of
each class. The problems will not be collected, they are for your
benefit in assisting your with understanding the material.

Attendance Policy:
Attendance is at your discretion. However, you are responsible for
what is
covered in class and for being present to take quizzes. I
strongly advise you to attend every class as in my experience the
best grades are earned by students that attend and are prepared for
every class. Borderline grade decisions will be determined by
attendance. Quizzes will be unannounced, thus missing a class may
mean missing a quiz. Quizzes may only be made up due to an
excused
absence that is properly documented.
