5.3 Late Penalties

Any work that is submitted on time and in the proper format receives a 1/3 letter grade bonus.

Submitting late work is a two-step process.

  1. E-mail the work to me, with your last name, the assignment name, and the word "Late" in the subject line. Example:

    "Smith Ex 1-2 Late"
    I'd prefer that you copy and paste the text into the body of your e-mail, rather than send an attachment.
  2. Write the word "Late" on a printout of your assignment, and hand it to me at the next class period (there's no need to make an extra trip to slip it under my office door).

If the e-mail submission of late work arrives in my box by 11:59:59 pm on the due date, it forfeits the bonus but receives no other penalty.

All other assignments are penalized 1/3 of a letter grade for each day they are late.

Exercises earn only half credit when they are submitted later than midnight on the day they were due.
