A Quantitative Approach,
by Hennessey and Patterson
|2 Midterm Exams
Projects must be submitted by the due date and time indicated on the
Late assignments will receive NO credit.
If you miss a exam with a good reason (I decide if your reason is a good
one), then the score you get on the next exam will be the score you will
be given for the missing one.
If you don't have a good reason you will get a 0 on the exam.
You must take the final exam at the officially scheduled time on
Thursday, December 20, 10:15AM-12:15PM.
You will not pass the course if you do not take the final exam.
Please do not ask to take the final exam early.
If you come to me with a problem meeting a deadline or taking an exam BEFORE it
is due I am pretty reasonable about deciding if an excuse is a good one.
If you come to me afterwards I'll be very skeptical and will almost certainly
require clear, written proof of whatever caused the problem.
