percent of top score average. Attendance This
This is a HARD course! 1. Attendance at lab is mandatory. You may only attend
the lab you are enrolled in. If you miss a lab (for a very
good reason) you must make arrangements to attend
another lab that week. You must notify your TA one week
in advance to attend another lab. If you miss a lab without
making arrangements one week in advance, you will lose
20 points. If you miss two labs without prior
arrangements, you will automatically fail the course.
Really! But fun! 2. Make-up exams will be available only if we know in
Makeadvance and you have a very good reason. There will be
NO MAKE-UP PRACTICAL exam, so make arrangements
MAKEaccordingly. Lecture schedule (subject to revision)
