Late Policy

Homework assignments will be due in class a week after they're assigned (typically Mondays). Lab assignments will be due a week after your primary lab session (Wednesday, Thursday or Friday). Since the labs are cumulative—that is, each one depends on your understanding of the previous one—it is essential to stay caught up. If you will be absent or late with your assignment or lab for some (very good) reason, you should get this cleared prior to the deadline with the instructor.

 

Grading

Your final grade will reflect your performance on the following:

Lab assignments (40%)

Final project (25%)

Homework assignments (25%)

Class participation (10%)
