Class attendance is expected. If you choose not to attend, it is your responsibility to obtain any class notes and/or assignments you may have missed from your classmates. You will not receive credit for inclass excercises completed on days you choose not to attend. If you have a medical or family emergency or legitimate conflict (a field trip for example) and cannot attend class, please let me know as far in advance as possible. Alternative arrangements will be made for documented absences.
Tests If you must miss a quiz or a test, so not expect a make-up quiz/test unless you have made advanced arrangements with me or have a physician confirmed medical excuse (this must include a statement that your condition would not permit you to attend class for the quiz/test).
The class guide is intended to make note taking easier and more complete. It does not include all the material and information you will need for tests. It can be purchased at the campus bookstore.
You are not required to purchase the textbook for this class, but the reading and illustrations may improve your learning. Copies are available at the bookstore.
