Course Policies

  • Attendance at and attentiveness in all class meetings is vital to this course. Through your project work you will both benefit from and be able to assist your classmates by taking part in conversations and discussions of work in progress. As such this contribution to class discussion is mandatory.
  • Excused absences are only allowed for special circumstances such as emergencies or illness. Please notify Prof. Keramidas in the event an excused absence is necessary. Unexcused absences and repeated lateness will affect your final grade
  • Plagiarism–the use of words, ideas, or arguments from another person or source without citation–is unacceptable in all circumstances and will be punished severely.
