It is important you to keep up with the course work on a daily basis and attend all classes on time. If you are late for more 20 minutes, you will be marked as absent. You must regularly attend the class. If you are not able to attend a class, it is your responsibility to notify the instructor either by an E-mail, which I check regularly, or talking directly to me at least one day in advance. If you do not notify your absence in advance, you won't get any excuses of your absence. It is also your responsibility to check for assignments, lecture notes, and any handouts for missing classes. Attendance will be taken by sign-in sheet everyday.
Your active participation in class is absolutely crucial to your success. When you have any questions about a course concept, ask your classmates or instructor as soon as possible. Do not wait until you are too far behind.
Turn in any assignments at the end of the class. There are no make-up quizzes and tests. I will accept late homework but I will subtract 10 % first week, 20% second week, 30% third week, 40% fourth week, 50% fifth week, 60% six week, 70% seventh week, 80% eighth week, and so on out of the total point
Cheating, plagiarizing in my class will be recorded zeros in your final grade. If you do not understand any materials, please let me know. I will work with you. If you use someone's work, you must have identified it as others work.
