† Attendance and Tardy Policy — Attendance is mandatory. Lack of attendance will affect your
grade because absences will not only leave holes in understanding of the lesson contents but also
degrade the benefit to other students in regard to discussions and work sessions. Coming to class
late or leaving early will also be counted as absences without prior approval from the instructor.
‡ Late assignments — Assignments/Midterm Project not turned in on time (7:00pm on the due date) will be docked 10 points. Assignments not turned in by 7:00pm one week after the due date will receive a 0.
