Each article presents a current science and technology topic which can have a significant impact on human society and values. Course Requirements. 1. Attendance. To reward those who make a concerted effort to attend class consistently and show a definite commitment to the learning process, credit will be awarded based on attendance. A sign-in sheet will be circulated at each class meeting. Attendance records will officially begin at the second class meeting.

The only exception: if you have a documented appointment (job interview, class field trip, participatory athletic event). Only you can sign-in for yourself. Doing this on behalf of a fellow classmate is not permitted. If this happens, you will forfeit half of your attendance points. If you are present but fail to sign the attendance sheet, you will be assessed an absence. Absences Points 0 50 1 40 2 30 3 20 4 10 5 0 2. Class Participation.
