If you feel that you can’t take one of the exams on the scheduled day and time contact with me as soon as
possible. All excused absences must have written documentation.
Quizzes: There will be a quiz every week on Thursdays during the recitation hours starting the second
week of the summer school.
Make up policy: There is no make up for the quizzes. If you miss a test and want to make it up, you
must contact with me and explain your excuse as soon as possible. If it is a health problem you must bring
your doctor’s report, which is given or checked by SU Health Center, as well. In case you are unable to
visit me, you, a friend or a relative should somehow (e-mail, phone, etc.) let me know about the situation.

The make up exam will be cumulative that is it will cover all the course material.
Grading Policy: Your work will be evaluated and weighted as
Your letter grade will be assigned based on the standard grading scale.
Incompletes: A grade I of Incomplete may be given to a student who has completed all but a very small
part of the course with a passing grade, but who is prevented from completing the course by some
unavoidable circumstance beyond his or her control (e.g. a medical reason). A student's desire to avoid a
low grade is not a legitimate reason to award an Incomplete.

for the material covered during the classes. Participating the class, asking questions are strongly
encouraged: these will help you to understand the material.. In class: Students are expected to behave
