*Late work and/or extensions: *

If you seek an extension on

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
