I will accept late work, but will LOWER the grade ONE FULL GRADE for EACH DAY that it is late. If an assignment is due on Monday, but you give it to me on Tuesday, the highest grade it can receive is a ‘B’. If it is turned in on Wednesday, the highest grade will be a ‘C’. Most major homework assignments or projects are assigned well in advance, and so their due dates are very firm. If you are absent and your work is not turned in on time, this “late work policy” applies (therefore, if your work is done and you are going to be absent, get someone to turn it in for you). If you are absent on the due date of a minor assignment, I will accept it during the next class. Catastrophic events will be dealt with in an appropriate and sensitive manner. (Computer problems are not catastrophic events; handwrite assignments if necessary or accept the late penalty).
