Guidelines

Basic Guidelines:
During class the use of mobile phones is NOT permitted. They must be switched off and put away during class time. Computers are not to be used during lectures or presentations unless otherwise instructed. Please respect your classmates, yourselves, and your instructor and complete your written and reading assignment before class. A ten minute break will be provided during every class session.

Participation:
Showing up on time, engaging in the class discussion, reading any articles or papers assigned and bringing that knowledge into your discussion and research, and offering advice and critique on other projects in the class is a major part of your grade.

Attendance:
Class will start promptly on time, please don’t be late. Late attendance affects your grade adversely. Students are expected to attend classes, work on projects during assigned lab times, and participate in class discussions and critiques.

Class Absences:
Your overall course grade will be reduced after 2 unexcused absences or if you are tardy for more than 3 classes. In the case of an absence, it is the student’s responsibility to get the homework assignment and any additional class materials.
Whenever possible, students should notify me in advance of their absence from any class. If you have an emergency, please let me know as soon as you can afterward.

Grading:
The final course grade will be based on points totaled for all of the assignments, class participation, and attendance. Projects and assignments are due at the beginning of class on the assigned deadline unless otherwise noted. Late projects will be docked 10 grade points (one letter grade) for the first day late, 20 grade points for the second day late, and 30 grade points for the third day late. A project late by four or more days will result in a failing grade.

Grading Breakdown:
Participation & Attendance: 20%
Minor Assignments: 20%
Mid-Term Presentation: 20%
Final Presentation: 25%
Documentation: 15%
