General Information

This page contains seminar makeup assignments for both


Seminar Makeup Assignments

There are four seminars that students are required to attend. Students who miss a seminar may make up the seminar by doing a makeup assignment. There are two types of absence, excused and unexcused. Absences are excused only if the examiner (David Carr) explicitly says that the absence is excused. Excused absences are granted only for things that are beyond the students control. Students should contact the examiner before missing a seminar or as soon as possible thereafter.

The makeup assignment is given for each seminar below.

Makeup Assignments for Quizzes

Your individual grade is based on the 5 highest scores of the 6 quizzes that are given during the course. So, you need not make up one quiz if you are satisfied with your results in the other quizzes. However, students may do the makeup assignments below as a substitute for a missed quiz. The assignments will be graded on a 0-8 scale in the same way as the quizzes. The due dates for each assigment are given with the assignment. Students having difficulty meeting the due dates due to illness or other extenuating circumstances should contact the examiner for an extention.
