Math 246 Attendance and Drop Policies, Fall 2016
Attendance (30 September version)
Attendance will be taken in every class until 8 September
(the last day to add courses is 12 September). If you have an
unexcused absence during this period and if there is a waiting list
for the class then you risk being administratively dropped. (The more
recently that you have attended, the less likely that you will be
dropped.) Because waiting lists typically vanish by 12 September,
it is rare that anyone is administratively dropped.
You should never assume that you will be dropped from the class simply
because you are not attending, not doing homework, 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.
(Policies regarding exams are explained elsewhere on this website.)
- You are responsible for knowing what topics where covered in each lecture.
- You are responsible for obtaining all materials distributed on this website.
- You are responsible for knowing every change in either
a homework assignment, an examination date, an office hour, or a course policy
that is announced either in lecture or on this website.
- You are responsible for collecting your graded homeworks and exams.
Graded homeworks and exams will only be returned directly to each student.
The University Class Attendance Policy can be found on the
Office of Undergraduate Studies website.
