  • The class will not be graded on a curve. It is theoretically possible for the whole class to get an A or an F.
  • There is a grade penalty for missed classes. Every one unexcused absence after the first one results in a 1/3 of a grade penalty. (Hence, with two absences, if my final grade had been C+, it would be reduced to a C; if C- it would be reduced to D+).
