Nature of course meetings and learning experiencesA variety of learning experiences are planned.Class attendance and active involvementin both lecture and lab sessions is expected.It is expected that the student will read theassigned chapter(s) by the time indicated on the syllabus.In other words read thematerial before I lecture on the material.I will not have time to cover everything in thebook, though you will be responsible for all of it.If you do not understand somethingthat you have read, you need to speak up and ask me about it.Chances are that you arenot the only student who did not understand it and if you do not ask I may not cover it,though you will still be responsible for knowing the material.You will be writing a paperduring this class and you will be making a short oral presentation on that paper.Luckilyfor you, there is only one section for lecture and lab this semester so you will have mefor both and that will not be an issue as both lecture and lab are aspects of your overallgrade.
