This is a hands-on class, with much of the material being accumulative. You will need to spend at east 3 - 6 hours a week, outside of class, reading, preparing assignments and labs. It is imperative that you attend class regularly. If you are absent more than four times , you will receive an F for the course (except under exceptional circumstances). You are responsible for all missed work. Make-up exams may be given at the discretion of the instructor- make sure you contact me BEFORE you miss an exam.
Students will be evaluated on quizzes, labs, final projects, and class participation.
Assignments will not be accepted more than one week late. It is important that assignments be handed in on time and complete. All assignments will be submitted through electronically through Canvas.
It is your responsibility to be sure you have submitted everything on time. You should frequently check to see which assignments are due and which have been graded. You may calculate your grade at any time by dividing the number of points you have earned by the total points possible to that point. Extensions and make-ups will only be given under extreme circumstances.
Personal computer problems are not an acceptable excuse for late work.
