Lectures for Students

Please click on the links below to download the files for the class you are enrolled. Please have these downloaded before the start of each class.

College-level courses, such as this one, are designed to require roughly 2–3 hours of outside work for every hour the class meets. This means, in addition to attending class meetings, each student should be working roughly 5–8 hours after each class (10–16 hours a week) to do well in this course.

Missing Class

If you can't make it to class, make sure to download the files for the date of absence. Go through the lectures, see what is due for next class and come prepared. Students are expected to attend each class meeting, on time, fully prepared, and ready to participate. Students who are not fully prepared, who have not shown project progression, or who have not produced enough work, five (5) points will be deducted from the project grade each class period the student is not prepared.

Attendance is a required component of this course and students are expected to attend class for its entirety. Each student is granted three (3) absences for the semester. Each additional absence will result in the drop of one full letter grade in the student’s final grade. Each tardy is counted as ¼ an absence. This means four (4) recorded tardies will count as one (1) absence.
