Each class exam (not the final) will consist of an “in class” and a “take home” part. For the “take home” you can get help from your book, notes, and texts in the library or the internet. No discussing or getting help from you fellow students or faculty. No asking the question on the internet. This is an honor system method, any evidence of not following the rules means a zero on the “take home” part.

Any student who is caught cheating during an exam, as a first offense, will receive 0 points on that exam. Students with a second offense of cheating will receive the grade of "F" in the course.

Although I will not formally check attendance, I do expect you to attend class. Since I do not ordinarily give make-up exams, only the most serious reason constitutes an excuse for missing an exam.
