Online homework 


The class will consist of lectures and video presentations, participation in the discussion, textbook readings, assignments and exams. Your final grade will be determined by the percentage of the total possible points earned on examshomework assignments, weekly activities and discussion participation by students.

Homework Policy

LATE ASSIGNMENTS WILL NOT BE ACCEPTED: All assignments must be typed unless done during class time. Do not send me any assignment as an email attachment.

Make-up exams are given only for exceptional reasons. It will have to be a serious emergency situation that occurs, and even then, after much proof, it will still be at my discretion. It shall be the student's responsibility to contact the instructor as soon as possible in the case of such PROLONGED emergency, to arrange an alternative. Missing a test without notifying the instructor WILL result in a grade of zero (0) points, no exceptions.

Final Exams must be taken on the day determined by the college (no exceptions!).

Attendance Policy

Attendance is taken daily either at the beginning or at the end of the class period. Students with poor attendance habits may be dropped from the course. Any student who comes in the room after attendance has been taken will be considered tardy. *Poor attendance habits (absenteeism and tardiness) will not be tolerated You will be given 20 points for attendance and two points will be deducted from the attendance point total for each absence or late arrival (tardy) to class.
