Participation: In this class I will be using RAD (remote answering device) to measure class participation during lecture. The device can be purchased at the bookstore. It will be used to measure your response to questions and topics, which will enable me to know how well you are understanding the given material. It will also be used to start discussions on new topics. Your reward for participating in class on 80% (20 days) of the lectures will be 30 points. These 30 points will be used to replace your lowest quiz score. You must have your RAD with you to participate . You must also register your RAD through the homepage in order to receive the 30 points. The RAD clickers will also be used for extra credit problems, which you will need to have your RAD registered in order to receive credit for these problems. Clicking in for someone else is considered cheating and will be treated as such. If caught you will lose ALL RAD points as well as any extra credit points and be referred to the Academic Integrity Office and prosecuted to the full extent as outlined in the Academic Honesty Policy of UCSD.
