Class Schedule *

The class schedule is structured in order for you to efficiently manage your schoolwork with your other responsibilities**The Schedule given below is tentative, and is dependent upon actual class progress (I would rather cover less material and make sure that you fully understand what you have covered). Additional information about the topics to be covered can be found by clicking on the week in which they scheduled (The estimated time given to the topic that week is given in parentheses)

 * 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 !!!
 *** Only if you have chosen this option

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 at the beginning of THE LAST CLASS OF THE WEEK.

    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.
     
  3. Because we are having three quizzes, the only way we can do it is to have the 3rd quiz in the last week of classes. I don't like it. I know you don't like it, especially since we have to turn around and have the Final exam the following week, but I don't know anyway else of doing it
