 * Actual Course schedule depends on the progress of the class. I would rather take more time to make sure you understand the material and cover less than hurry through all of the projected material.
 ** If you are working while taking classes or have other responsibilities, that's Great! However, it is NEVER (NOT ever) an excuse for missing a class, an assignment, or any other evaluation area. As far as I am concerned, THIS COURSE IS YOUR PRIMARY JOB !!!

Additional Notes:

  1. I don't Expect to run exactly on schedule. Some sections may take more time, some may be completed earlier. If we do fall behind, I will extend the due date for for some assignments. I will let you know in class.
     
  2. Unless otherwise instructed, all items due will be due by FRIDAY MORNING (why not turn them in earlier?)

    NOTE:
    The website is occasionally down (usually because of server problems). THIS IS NOT A REASON FOR EXTENDING THE DUE DATE !!! You will notice that I have given you plenty of time to complete each assignment. DO IT EARLY !!! Unless I specify otherwise, there will be no extensions.
