Method of Presentation:

1. Students are expected to arrive on time, participate in class discussions and remain for the entire class. Role is taken promptly at 6:30pm. When instructor calls the student’s name, if the student does not respond, instructor will show the student as being absent. If a student arrives late, please sit down quietly at the back row. It is the student’s responsibility to speak to the instructor at the end of that same class period and ask the instructor to change “absent” into a “tardy”. The instructor can change this only that same day, not in the future. Class ends at 8:20pm. If a student has need to leave early one day because of a pressing emergency, the student needs to let the instructor know ahead of time, otherwise he/she will be shown as being absent for that day. Students are responsible to keep track of their absences and tardiness.
2. Instructor may drop a student with 4 absences. Three tardiness equal one absence. It is the student’s responsibility to process a DROP form. If the student simply stops attending class, the student will get an “F”.
3. There will be 3 exams as shown on schedule. Students are responsible for being present at those dates. NO MAKE-UP EXAMS. Students are responsible to call in on exam day if insurmountable emergency should arise.
4. Students are required to turn OFF cell phones during class time. If a student wants to say something during lecture, please get the instructor’s attention first (raise hand or say “question”), then speak out. If a student needs to tell the instructor something important regarding his/her class status, please give it to the instructor in writing and talk to the instructor during office hours. A student who is disruptive or is disregarding rules, such as talking, passing notes, doing homework or outside work, wearing headphones, verbal abuse, threats and etc. will be asked to leave classroom. The student must submit a request in writing asking to be re-admitted and may not re-enter without instructor’s permission. The student will be counted as absent until re-entered. Any second incident will result in the student being dropped from class with an “F”. The student who refuses to leave the room will be dropped from the class with an “F” and reported to school authorities for further action.
5. Each student gets one folder from the instructor. It is the student’s responsibility to keep all the graded work in the folder and clearly record the points of each graded work until the end of the quarter.
