In practical terms, you have to attend at least 10 weeks of lecture in a 14 week semester. Otherwise, you will not be able to enter the final examination and your grade will be NA at the end of the semester. Attendance will be checked at the beginning of each lecture session (2 times each week). Late-comers will be considered absent for that session.

Students are expected to know their own attendance level.

REQUIRED HARDWARE

Students are required to acquire and learn to operate a scientific calculator. Please carry this calculator with you at all times; especially during the exams. Students will not be allowed to use any kind of computers, cell-phones with computers or share calculators during the exams. Lecture notes will be provided regularly, however, students are advised to take their own notes during the lectures.
