Evaluations will be based on three equally important criteria:








Students are encouraged to discuss the course material, concepts, and assignments with other students in the class. However, all material turned in by a student must be the sole work of that student. In keeping with UCSC policy, anyone caught copying or otherwise turning in material that is not solely their work, or helping someone else to do so, will receive an automatic failing grade for the course and any other sanctions deemed appropriate by the University. If you are unsure of what is and is not allowed by this policy, talk to the instructor.


Because class participation and discussion are important parts of this class, students are expected to attend every class session. If you cannot attend because of some emergency, please let me know (email is fine). An emergency is anything requiring that you miss class for serious and unexpected reasons.
