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
