    ​​​EXTRA CREDIT---

    The following are extra credit possibilities. Remember extra credit is not an alternative to doing the assigned work. The best way to do well is to complete all assignments on time and to the best of your ability. Extra credit will not change your grade from a C to an A. It might, however, give you that extra point or two to go from a B to a B+ or an A- to an A. Points are averaged into the total they are NOT added to the final average. The maximum number of extra credit points you can accumulate in a marking period is 20.
