### Policies

- Exams are closed-book (no notes allowed) that will take place in class.
- Calculators, phones, computers, or any other electronic devices may not be used in the exams.
- There will be no make-up exams except for verifiable illness or incapacity, approved by the Institute.

- All work submitted for the course must be the sole work of the student. Any student who copies from another or cheats in any manner will receive a 0 for that assignment/exam with the possibility of more severe punishment, such as receiving an 'F' for the course or expulsion. See Univesity's Student Conduct Policies. Also, see the Institute of Technology¿s policies regarding dishonest and disruptive behavior.
