Attendance and Punctuality
Attendance is mandatory and integral to success in the course, so come to class each day, on-time and prepared to work, and be sure to stay for the duration of the class. Participation and in-class assignments will account for a portion of your final grade. Students can view a summary of their absences and tardy record during instructor office hours.
Be courteous of those in your classroom and give them your full attention during presentations, lectures, and class discussions. You are expected to turn off and put away cell phones, pagers, text message devices, MP3 players, or any other distracting electronic gadgets during class time. Failure to adhere to these policies will be reflected in your daily participation grade and may result in a request for the student to leave the classroom.
