3. Homeworks and Quizzes: Homework is due in class every Tuesday. Homework solutions will be made available each week on reserve in the library after class. Homework assignments are subject to change during the semester. Every Thursday, except for those days mentioned in the syllabus, there will be a ten minute quiz in class based on the homework problems. There will be no make-up quizzes for undocumented absences. There are a total of 11 quizzes during the semester. The best 10 will be counted for the semester grade.



4. Attendance: Quizzes will be given in class every Thursday (except as noted). Missing 4 or more quizzes will be considered excessive absences and will be grounds for dismissal from the class with a grade of "WF".



5. Exams: There are two mid-term exams and a final exam. Make-up exams will be given only for the most compelling and extraordinary reason. All make-up exams must be requested from the instructor in advance of the original exam, and excuses must be documented.



6. Academic dishonesty is defined in the UWG student handbook. Any instance of Academic misconduct on an exam or quiz will result in loss of all credit for the semester and receipt of an F grade. Appeal procedures following such a judgement are also found in the student handbook.
