Instructions for Absent Students
As reviewed at the beginning of the semester, you are responsible for
contacting other students about the missed class session (including
information about homework due next class). (Please check your syllabus
for student contact information. On the first day of class, all students were
encouraged to write down contact information from other class members.)
Canvas Resources for Missed Class Sessions
Visit Canvas and click on "Home." You will see the live schedule for our
class. To view information about missed class sessions, click on the date’

As stated previously, you are responsible for contacting other class
members for notes and additional missed information.
Although students may not earn points for missed in-class instruction (five
points per day), you do have the opportunity to earn up to thirty extra
credit points this semester. (Syllabus: See the syllabus for "No Questions

Allow 24 hours (during the week) and forty eight hours (during the
weekend) for my response.
