Exam 4 will NOT be a traditional cumulativefinal.Attendance: Please note that attendance is NOT part of your grade for this class. It does not need to be. Ithas been my experience that poor attendance will naturally result in poor grades, and so I do not “take roll”.Having said that, I will know who has been in class regularly and who has not.What to do if you miss class:Emergencies happen. Illnesses happen. When you must miss class, thebest thing to do is to get notes from a classmate and copies of all handouts ASAP, and then to come speakto me about what you missed.Rescheduling Quizzes and Exams: If you have a scheduling conflict with any of the quizzes or exams,PLEASE SPEAK TO ME IN PERSON AHEAD OF TIME.

However, if you come to me after the fact (i.e. you’ve already missed a quiz/exam) and ask totake it, the answer will be no.Extra Credit: Periodically during the term, I will make extra credit options available. Extra credit islagniappe. It will not bolster a dismal test grade, but it will fill in a point of two on dismal quizzes. Pleasebe aware that extra credit is neither a mandatory part of this course nor a requirement for this course; yourparticipation in extra credit events is NOT compulsory.How to Do Well in this Class: Come to class.
