Note also these policies:
I am not unaware that you have other classes outside of this one. If you come to me 48 hours before a deadline with a conflict, we can discuss the possibility of an extension. Plan ahead. These will be granted at my discretion only.
Extensions do not apply to any work performed in class. If you are absent on a day when something is done in class, unless it is an extraordinary circumstance, it cannot be made up. Allowances will be made for serious illnesses and emergencies only; speak with me first before assuming you qualify for one of those two categories!
Attendance to every class meeting is a responsibility you must take seriously. If you must be absent from lecture for any reason, you must have any work that is due at that lecture meeting turned in prior to the start of lecture. You are responsible for obtaining notes from any class you miss. After reviewing the notes, you may make an appointment with me to discuss what you still do not understand.
