Attend to all classes is essential. Un-excused absences will result in faults to the participation evaluation. Keep me updated if you need to miss class. In any case, the students are responsible for being up-to-date. Being late will be perceived the same way.
You will be evaluated according to your overall engagement in the projects. Your active participation during the semester will also be taken in account.
