Registration If you are currently registered for the class, you must be present at one of the first two class meetings to keep that registration. If you are absent from both, you will be dropped from the class. If you are not registered for the class and wish to be, you should add your name to the sign-up sheet during both of the first two class sessions. After the first week, I will add as many students as possible by random draw from the sign-up sheets to the class.
