1. Follow guideline to complete your work. Homework
guideline will be announced two weeks before the deadline
if necessary.

2. P (participation) and A (attendance) are also required and will
be monitored by (+) and (V) symbols. For attendance, once
a (V) symbol is entered into my record book, it will not be removed. Once or twice not showing up in class is acceptable since we all may encounter incidents out of our control. However, when more than three minus records appear, they will be treated as a warning and the student may lose 5 points from P and A. If 5 such minus records appear, the student will be reported to the administration office and not be allowed to take the final examination. In this case, s/he will fail in the course work. Students are also encouraged to ask questions and/or present opinions in class or access to discussion board for extra brainstorming. Frequent online discussion will be rewarded with more points for P and A.

Please be advised that attendance and classroom participation are still counted heavily into your academic score, namely, 15%. Those senior students who need time to study your graduate school examinations should not be excluded from attending Monday lessons. This means that you still need to go to class, but do your study after class. No permission of absence will be granted, only with two exceptions. First, you can be absent only one week before your examination to allow you extra time for last minute work. Second, permission of absence will be granted also to the dates that your examinations take place. But I need an evidence to show me that the examination date is Monday. My advice is that you need to exercise very good discipline in managing your time. At the same time, continue your normal study as already being arranged by the university.
