2 HOMEWORK: Homework problems will be assigned on line for each chapter. Each homework will have a time limit to complete and submit. After the deadline, the homework will no longer be available on line. Hence it is worth printing and keeping them for revision for the final exam. These should be worked after you have studied and learned the material from the notes, the power point slides and the textbook AND BY WORKING PROBLEMS IN THE TEXTBOOK. If you wait until the day before homework assignment is due to begin it, you may have difficulty finishing. Homework should be submitted on the designated day and time, whether you attend class or not (except for emergencies.) I expect you to call or email me as early as possible if you have a problem . After the due date and time, homework will be considered overdue and may be assessed a 50% late penalty (based on total points for the assignment). Exceptions will be made for legitimate emergencies on a case by case basis provided I receive prompt notification of the problem. Normally, prompt notification means a phone call or email to my office before the assignment is due. The HONOR CODE covers the exam.
