You can earn 3% extra credit for "class participation".
For this class, it simply means attending lectures
starting from the 2nd week of classes.
Remote students (who are registered with the DEN section) get this extra credit for free.
Starting with the 2nd week of class, a roll sheet will be
available on the table in front of the class.
Please sign in as soon as you get into class.
If you arrive way too late or
leave way too early,
you will receive no credit for the day.
Since everyone starts to get quite busy
during the last 3 weeks of classes, you will get participation extra credit
for the last 3 weeks of classes automatically (i.e., no
roll sheets during the last 3 weeks of classes).
If you do not
arrive late and you do not
leave early, you will receive full credit
for the lecture.
If you arrive late, you forfeit half of the credit. Please check the
late box on the roll sheet.
If you leave early, you forfeit half of the credit. Please also check the
late box on the roll sheet. If you arrive late and leave early,
please remove your signature from the roll sheet.
Clock is based the time on instructor's cell phone.
- Arriving way too late
means that you arrive 30 minutes beyond the official start of class time.
- Leaving way too early
means that you leave 15 minutes before the official end of class time.
- Arriving late
(but not way too late)
means that you arrive 10 minutes beyond the official start of class time but not way too late.
- Leaving early
(but not way too early)
means that you leave 5 minutes before the official end of class time but not way too early.
In case you have to leave early but you did not get a chance to modify
the roll sheet, please
send an e-mail to the instructor afterwards and ask to have your
signature removed from the roll sheet (or check the late box).
If this is not done soon after class is over, it would be considered as
cheating for class participation and you will get no extra credit
at all for class participation (i.e., you will lose the entire 3%).
If you asked someone else to sign a roll sheet for you, it's also considered cheating.
Since class participation is extra credit, if you miss the class
for whatever reason (including sickness or family emergency), you
will not get credit for the class (unless you send me a documented
proof of sickness or family emergency).
