You will most likely pass this course, and with flying colors, if you attend class regularly, participate, and do your best. (Perfection isn’t necessary.) However, 10 or more absences will result in your inability to pass this course. Tardiness and premature departures may also result in an absence, so do your best to arrive and leave at the appropriate times.
Please see me after class if you have special accommodations
