Math 246 Attendance and Drop Policies, Fall 2008


Attendance will be taken in the discussion sections on 8 September and on 15 September (the last day to add courses is 15 September). If you have an unexcused absence during this period and if there is a waiting list for your section then you risk being administratively dropped from the class. (Those who have never showed up will be dropped first; those who have missed the 15 September class will be dropped next.) Because waiting lists typically vanish by 15 September, it is rare that anyone is administratively dropped from a class.

You should never assume that you will be dropped from the class simply because you are not attending or not taking exams. If you wish to drop the class, you should follow the University Procedures, which are outlined under ``Drop'' below.

You are expected (but not required) to attend every scheduled class. At all times, you are responsible for knowing every topic covered in class (whether or not it is covered in the books), for obtaining all materials distributed in class or on the webpage, and for knowing every change in either a homework assignment, a Matlab project, a quiz or exam schedule, an office hour, or a course policy that is announced in class or on the webpage. You are also responsible for collecting your graded projects, quizzes, and exams from your TA. Graded projects, quizzes, and exams will only be returned directly to each student.
