Unit Exams
Download All Exams?
(Really? What kind of a site do you think this is?
You must have me mistaken for another teacher!)
You have one week to retake each unit exam or take the exam if you missed the first "take".
All retakes 70% max.
Exams at the end of the semester have no retakes. The semester is over.

What do I do if I miss one or more of the work days for the final project?

Complete a case study (one for each day that you have missed) found in the back of your textbook. Do the "presenting" part at the end of the case study. This will give you credit for the participation that you missed. There are seven case studies. You choose which one (or more) that you will do. The project itself is still your responsibility!

The best thing that you can do is not miss class.

This is a good read!
