In a similar manner,a single late arrival of 20 minutes or more is treated as a single unexcused absence.

If your absence is unexcused
 
and you have missed a quiz or a test, you will either failthat assignment or schedule a make up with the grade lowered by a letter grade
or theequivalent number of points. If you have missed any other assignment, the grade is usuallylowered by one full letter grade.
If your absence is excused
,
it is your responsibility toinform me
without delay that you need to make up a test or quiz.
 
 
If you are absent, it is your responsibility to find the nature of the homeworkassignment
from a classmate or the class blog and
get the work done before youreturn to class.
