Class Policies
All students are required and expected to attend class. No lecture notes/slides will be published, hence the need for class attendance. If you want to take notes from lecture on your laptop, that is fine. Otherwise (eg, reading email or Facebook), please don't bring your laptop. Students are kidding themselves if they think they can read email and pay attention to the lecture at the same time. Remember this thought when assessing your exam scores. For further details, please see the course policies page.
