There will be a new quiz posted every two weeks on blackboard. We will remind you in class, but its your responsibility to stay on top of these and watch for new quizzes.
Quizzes turned out to be pretty ineffective and mostly busywork, so we only had 2 quizzes. These will still be taken into account for grading. If you missed one of these, then that will still be minus one point.
This is a pass/fail class. You will fail if you miss more than 3 points during the semester.
You get a point for every lecture, lab, and quiz.
This, in effect, means that you can miss one lecture, one lab, and one quiz and still pass.
You miss a point for each lecture/lab you don't attend and one for each quiz you miss.
