Attendance Policy:

Although I will not be taking attendance, it is to your advantage to participate in all the classes. If you miss a class, you still are responsible for the material covered that day, including such things as homework assignments and changes in schedules. Homework assignments will be posted to the web on the homework assignments page, so you can check there if you miss a class. You may also find the course calendar helpful. If you are absent from class on a day that I return homework or an exam, you will need to come to my office to pick yours up, as I only bring them to class once.

There will be no make-ups for missed quizzes or exams. If you are going to miss a class when the take-home portion of a quiz is due, you should make arrangements for someone to drop off your solutions for you, either during class, or at my office or mailbox prior to class. Late write-ups will count as a zero.

Midterm exams can be taken early only under unusual circumstances, and only by arranging a time with the instructor at least one week in advance of the date of the exam. The final exam can not be rescheduled.

You should note that this class begins at 8:20 (not 8:25, and not 8:30). In some past terms, I have had students who were regularly late to class. This is very disruptive to me and to the class as a whole, and I will not be happy if it occurs this term. Please be prompt in arriving at class. You should not feel bad if you must be late once in a while, but chronic lateness will not be tolerated.

Even though I am not taking attendance, I am aware of when you are in class and when you are not, and excessive absences may affect the class-participation portion of your grade.
