Grading Policies (in a nutshell. See Syllabus for full class/grading policies)
1. Homework must be turned in on the date it is due. I accept late work up to one day late for partial credit.
2. All tests/quizzes must be made up the day you return unless other arrangements have been made between the student and myself.
3. Do your homework, be here each day, and work hard in class. There's no secret to success. What you put into it, is what you get out of it.
