If you miss the midterm, you will get a mark of zero unless you have informed me BEFOREHAND and I have agreed that you may miss it. You can send me an e-mail (email@example.com), phone me at 562-5800 X-6309 or a friend can bring the news.
If I agree that you may miss the midterm, there will be no make-up midterm. Instead, the weight of the final exam will be increased to include the weight of the midterm. For example, if the midterm was worth 25% and the final exam 45%, the final exam will now be worth 70%.
If you inform me AFTERWARD that you were unable to write the midterm, you will get a mark of zero.
