Your maximum final grade will drop one letter for each lecture that you do not attend, unless that absence is excused. Excused absences must be obtained prior to class by email with the professor.Class attendance is required. When you register for CSE131, you make a committment to put forth your best effort. One obvious expectation is that you will attend class, because the studio and lab sessions follow directly from the material covered in class.
Although a textbook and on-line resources are provided, they are not an adequate substitute for attending class.
Your participation score is based on responding to WUTexter quizzes that are posed during lecture. If you are absent, you cannot participate.
Attendance in lab sections is also important. Any graded materials will be returned in lab sections, and you will have an opportunity to discuss written comments with the TAs during lab. Also, most lab assignments require a demonstration of your working program in the lab section on the due date. You must attend your lab section in order to give the required demonstration.
