 Attendance:  Class performance is strongly related to class attendance.   In this sense attendance is factored into your grade. I strongly recommend regular attendance.

 Website:  A website has been created for this class where you can get additional information throughout the semester. I plan to post a class list, homework assignments, announcements, etc.

 Academic Integrity:  All UNCC students have the responsibility to be familiar with and to observe the requirements of  The UNCC Code of Academic Integrity  (see Catalog, pages 24-25).  This code forbids cheating, fabrication or falsification of information, multiple submissions of academic material, and complicity in academic dishonesty.  Students who violate the code can be punished to the extent of being permanently expelled from UNCC and having this fact recorded on their official transcript.
