The only reasons to miss class are for personal or family illnesses or death in the family. Please call my office and leave a message if you cannot come. Vacations, taking care of family members for a long time, illness for a long time, other classes, and job problems are unexcused and are not reasons to miss class.
You will not be allowed to enroll next quarter if you:
Students are expected to:
• come prepared to class (binder, paper, pens, do homework);
• participate in class, attend class and be on time.
I will mark your tests and homework with these numbers:
4 100 – 96% Exceptional (Excellent)
3 95 – 86% Competent (Good)
2 85 – 80% Developing (OK)
1 79%-below Beginning (Needs more practice)
