Exams and quizzes may not be made up unless you have a documented reason for having missed. If possible, schedule a makeup BEFORE an exam date. If you do not contact me before the first lecture after an exam, you will receive a zero for that exam. Make-up exams given at times other than scheduled may be in the form of multiple essays. Examples of valid excuses (documentation provided) Examples of invalid excuses Written explanation by a medical or legal professional Death of an immediate family member Copy of police report corresponding to exam/class time Child care emergency Alarm failure Event conflict (games, concerts) unless you are an athlete/performer Vacations 2. You are expected to be prepared for each lecture; this means study your readings in advance! 3. You are responsible for readings, notes, and assignments up to and including exam day for all exams and quizzes. Bring at least one #2 pencil with you for exams . 4. Electronic devices: Use of personal stereos during class will not be tolerated. Cell phones and pagers must be turned off or set to a silent mode. A ringing cell phone gives me a good reason for a pop quiz! Tape recorders may be used for recording lectures, and computers may be used only for taking notes. 5.
