Pop Quizzes: 5-10 minute. Each covers material given during the same lecture. Exams, homeworks and quizzes are generally CHALLENGING
Remarks (2) Attendance will be checked each class. Unexcused Absences Policies: –The first FOUR absences are FREE of charge. –The FIFTH absence is worth -2.5 of your maximum 100 total. –Each subsequent absence, up to the NINTH absence, is worth -0.5. –The TENTH absence will result in an automatic DN. –An unexcused absence becomes an excused absence ONLY by an official letter from the Deanship of Students’ Affairs Office.

24-Hour Policy One has 24 hours to object to the grade of a homework, [pop] quiz or a major from the end of the class time in which the graded exam/homework papers have been distributed. If for some reason you cannot contact me within this period, send me an email requesting an appointment. The email should be sent within the 24-hour time period.
CHEATING POLICY Cheating in one category will result in a zero for the whole category. For example, if cheating is confirmed in homework 3, this will result in 0 out of 10% [which means that there is no need to submit any additional homework]. An additional 5% will be deducted from the overall total (out of 100). http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/D%C4%83nu%C5% A3_Marcuhttp://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/D%C4%83nu%C5% A3_Marcu
