Test and Quiz Policy: The lowest of your four 50-minute test scores will be dropped.
Your two lowest quiz scores will be dropped. There will be no make-up tests or quizzes.
If one test is missed, this will be considered as the test with the lowest score, and will be
the test that is dropped. A second (or more) missed test will be given a grade of F.
Missed quizzes get a grade of 0 out of 10, up to two of which will be dropped
Homework: Homework will be assigned during each class meeting. It is to be completed by the next class meeting. Although homework will not be collected or graded, it is ESSENTIAL to your success in the course that
