Works submitted after the due date are reduced one half grade for each class meeting until they are turned in. Students are expected to attend all class meetings. Grades are affected by attendance as follows: 0 absences = + 3 points on the final average, 4+ absences: -1 point off the final average for each class missed. Arriving 10 minutes or more late to class three times constitutes one absence. Leaving a class early by 30 minutes or more twice is equivalent to one absence. Attendance on one field trip is mandatory. The student is responsible for obtaining all material covered during missed sessions.
