To be fair and to get assignments graded and returnedin a timely fashion, the deadlines are critical. Please turn things in correctly.All of your work must be submitted before the deadline. For example, if an assignment is required by 11:59PM and you submit your work at exactly 11:59PM, your assignment will be considered late. Excel or HTML Assignments submitted after the due date, even 1 second after the deadlinewill be deducted 50% on grading. After 24 hours past the initial deadline, these assignments will not be accepted for grading. For Unit Quizzes and Unit Assessments, no late work will be allowed, even 1 second later.
