Attendance Attendance (20%) will be taken every class period in the classroom and in the gardens with the exception of August 22 and 23 due to drop/add timeline. You must attend your scheduled section to receive attendance credit. Classroom and garden attendance (out of 12 total for each) is worth 2 pts out of 100 total points that make up your grade for the whole semester (1 pt = classroom attendance & 1 pt = garden attendance). You will be allowed 2 absences from each, and are therefore only required to attend 10 lectures and 10 garden times to receive full credit. Attendance beyond 10 lectures will earn extra credit such that 1 pt EC will be given for attending 11/12 lectures, 2 pt EC will be given for attending all 12 lectures, and 4 pt EC for attending all 12 lectures and all 12 garden times. *Note: In the case of rain you are still required to attend lecture, and we will determine then whether working in the garden that day will be possible.
