I will not be accepting late assignments this year unless there is a very good excuse.  Late work just creates more work for me and doesn’t teach the students about responsibility.  I will be posting assignments on the hall bulletin board as well as on the website (  Please check there regularly for updated work.  I always plan my projects at the beginning of the term so no excuse for not getting to work on it.
