Arrangements for missing exams will only be made under university-accepted reasons. You must notify me 24 hours in advance and provide valid, written documentation. If excused, the weight of the midterm will transfer to the final exam. Failure to provide advance notification will result in a zero on the exam. ▪ You may use the equation sheet provided by the instructor during the exam. You are not allowed to use any other resource or material, including but not limited to, your cellphone, online resources and communicating with others. ▪ Academic Integrity: Students are expected to behave according to the Academic Integrity Policy as specified in the undergraduate and graduate catalogs.
