For an unplanned absence, you will take the test immediately upon return to school and I (as well as the main office) must be notified by a doctor, parent or guardian that your absence was excused.

Advice: You will probably get frustrated, relax, make some notes about WHAT YOU DO NOT UNDERSTAND, look at it again after 5-10 minutes. Keep a positive attitude, trust me, it will help. Get a study buddy, or study group. Do every problem you can DO NOT fall behind. Catch up is almost impossible. This class goes too fast.
