We expect that you will attend class every day.  Attendance is not officially required and is not officially a part of your grade.  However, if you are on the borderline between two grades, attendance will be used to determine which grade you receive.


H1N1 and Other Serious Illness

Typically we will not accept late homework, and missed quizzes and exams cannot be made up.  However, should you contract H1N1 or another serious illness, please contact your professor.  We will be happy to make arrangements for you to make up late work, quizzes, and exams under these circumstances.  Please do not come to class if you have H1N1 or an influenza-like illness; your professor will be happy to tell you what you've missed.  For more information on what to do if you believe you have H1N1 or the flu, see the Dartmouth website.


Honor Principle

We encourage you to talk to each other about homework problems and to try to solve homework problems together, but you must write up your solutions independently and in your own words. You may consult other people or sources other than the course text, your class notes, and the instructor, but you must acknowledge these people and/or sources when you write up your homework. You are on your honor not to talk to another student about an exam until both students have turned in their exams.


Disabilities, Religious Observances, Etc.

Students in this course with disabilities, including "invisible" disabilities such as chronic diseases and learning disabilities, and who may need disability-related classroom accommodations, are encouraged to make an appointment to see their instructor as soon as possible. They should also stop by the Academic Skills Center in Collis Center to register for support services.  All discussions will remain confidential, although the Academic Skills Center  may be consulted to verify the documentation of the disability and advise on an appropriate response to the need.

Some students may wish to take part in religious observances that occur during this academic term. If you have a religious observance that conflicts with your participation in the course, please meet with me before the end of the second week of the term to discuss appropriate accommodations.
