Math 246 Attendance and Drop Policies, Fall 2018
Attendance will be taken in the discussion sections on 29 August
and 5 September (the last day to add courses is 10 September).
If you have an unexcused absence during this period and if there is
a waiting list for your section then you risk being administratively
dropped from the class. (Those who have never shown up will be dropped
first; those who have missed the 5 September class will be dropped next.)
Because waiting lists typically vanish by 6 September, it is rare that
anyone is administratively dropped from a class.
You should never assume that you will be dropped from the class simply
because you are not attending or not taking exams. If you wish to drop
the class, you should follow the University Procedures, which are
outlined under ``Drop'' below.
You are expected (but not required) to attend every scheduled lecture
and discussion section. At all times, you are responsible for knowing
every topic that is covered in every lecture and discussion, for
obtaining all materials distributed on the website, and for knowing
every change in either a homework assignment, a Matlab project, a quiz
or exam schedule, an office hour, or a course policy that is announced
either in lecture or on the website. You are also responsible for
collecting your graded projects, quizzes, and exams from your TA.
Graded projects, quizzes, and exams will only be returned directly to
