Math 246 Attendance and Drop Policies, Spring 2011
Attendance will be taken in the discussion sections on
28 January and on 4 February (the last day to
add courses is 4 February). 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 shown up will be dropped first; those who have missed the 4
February class will be dropped next.) Because waiting lists
typically vanish by 4 February, 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 lecture
and discussion section. At all times, you are responsible for knowing
every topic that is covered in lecture (whether or not it is covered
in the books), for obtaining all materials distributed on the website,
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 lecture or on the website. 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.
