Letter grades: Division points between letter grades will be based on student performance and best judgment of the instructor.

fyi: 

1. Attendance in class is expected. Points will be taken off final grade for poor attendance, particularly in the form of class participation and evaluation of and by colleagues.

2. There is no such thing as a stupid question, except the one not asked. Chances are others don't understand it either.

3. Students are expected to seek assistance if necessary. The instructor interprets students coming to his office to ask questions as eager beavers worthy of high grades. Students in trouble who don't try to straighten out their problems immediately and then say simply, "I never understood that" are in more trouble than they think.

4. No make up exams or late assignments will be permitted unless arranged in advance.

5. Fallibility of instructors is uncommon. However, in the unlikely event of a difference in opinion on grading, the question must be resolved within three days. Senility is common. Therefore, grades are as-is where-is for time greater than three days after posting.

Your job: 

The professor recognizes that problems of learning, earning, yearning, spurning, squirming and slumbering are unique to student life. Such problems will be treated with civility by a southern gentleman, but not with a great deal of compassion. You are a unique individual, wonderfully made, but the University environment demands your working within the same constraints imposed on others.
