Midterm Exam: The midterm exam will be worth 100 points. Make-up exams will only be offered to those with a legitimate excuse. If the University closes on 5 November, the midterm exam will be given the next lecture time the class meets. You may appeal the score you receive on the midterm exam by submitting your exam plus a note stating which problems you wish to have regraded to Professor Levermore. An appeal must be made by November 19.
Final Exam: The Final Exam will be worth 200 points. It will be based on the entire course. If you miss the Final Exam, and if by the next day you present a legitimate, well-documented excuse showing that for reasons beyond your control it was absolutely impossible for you to take the Final Exam, and if you have taken the midterm exam and have a C or better at the time of the Final Exam, then you will receive a grade of I for the course. In all other cases a score of zero will be assigned for the Final Exam and your course grade will be evaluated accordingly. If the University closes on the day of a scheduled final exam, then it will be given whenever the University reschedules it.
