Academic honesty:
All students are expected to be familiar with and adhere to the policies and standards given in the BSU Student Code of Conduct.

Cell phones, paging devices, etc.:
Please ensure that all electronic deices are either turned off or in silent mode during class so as not to cause disruption.

Late work and/or extensions:
If you seek an extension on an assignment and the request occurs after the due date or time, your request will be summarily denied (except in the most extraordinary circumstances). Such requests that occur before the due date and time will be considered on a case-by-case basis.

Contesting grades:
If you think I have graded you unfairly on a particular assignment, you must bring this to my attention within a week from the time that the assignment was returned to the class. After a week I will not consider any requests to review and possibly change my grading.

Grading policy:
Your grade will be determined by your performance in three areas: Your grade will be computed via the following algorithm. Let x be the number of points accumulated throughout the semester (between 0 and 100):

A+: x > 97
A: 93 < x < 97
A-: 90 < x < 93
B+: 87 < x < 90
B: 83 < x < 87
B-: 80 < x < 83
C+: 77 < x < 80
C: 73 < x < 77
C-: 70 < x < 73
D: 60 < x < 70
F: x < 60
