Class Attendance:Regular class attendance will be necessary to maximize your grade in this course. Much of the text material will be simplified in class so that studying for this class will be made easier. Outside material will be covered in lecture that is not in the textbook.Pop-quizes will be given almost every week to assure familiarity with the material.
Occasionally it may be necessary to miss a class or to leave a class early a given day. It is good etiquette to inform me any day that you will be unable to attend class or when you must leave a class early. Otherwise it will be considered rude and disruptive behavior to leave a class without informing the instructor.
Regular classroom meeting times are the official means of getting class notes. If you fail to show up during the lecture you will miss the opportunity to receive the notes.It is wise to copy the notes missed from a classmate. Alternatively, a student should outline the associated text chapter covered bythe missed lecture. Also a student should use the library to research any concepts that were missed in a lecture.
Read the assigned textbook material before the lecture material is presented in class. It helps retention of the information, and promotes in class discusssion.
