Makeups 
There are no makeups in
this course. Students should make all of their semesters' plans in
advance. This is nonnegotiable. 
The only exceptions to this rule are: (a) Medical emergencies, together with written evidence of such an emergency; or (b) conflicting, and official, universityrelated activities (such as athletic meets) with written documentation. 
Assignments  I will drop the lowest homework score. 
Late homeworks are not accepted under any conditions. If you cannot turn in a homework due to medical and/or accidentrelated emergencies, and if you can produce proper documentation, then I will replaced the missed homework by the average score of your other homeworks (before I drop the lowest one homework score). Otherwise, you will not receive credit for the missed homework.
