Homework: Homework is considered an important part of the class. Homework will be made up of the exercises and problems at the end of each chapter covered during the term. It will be the responsibility of each student to complete the homework on time and in an acceptable manner. Homework should be expected each and every class. I will either collect the homework that is due at the start of class or I will walk around and check it off if I plan to review the problems in class. If you are not in class at the time I collect the homework or check it off it will be considered late. Late homework will not be accepted. I don’t accept homework electronically.


Appropriate classroom conduct promotes an environment conducive to student success. For this reason, the use of personal electronic devices in the classroom will be for instructor-sanctioned activities only. These instructor-sanctioned activities will be discussed in the course.
