Calendars for Professors

  • Common Calendar
  • You must come to class on time. If you are late, you will not be allowed to enter the lecture room unless you have received prior permission from the instructor. You are not to be disruptive in class. Specifically, you must not use your cell phones (for texting or otherwise), allow your cell phones to ring, or use tablet/laptop computers for any purpose not directly related to the course (i.e. viewing notes or working on problems). If you violate these rules, you will be asked to leave (on the initial violation) or you will be expelled from the course (on the subsequent violations). You do not need to ask permission to leave early, but please, try not to be disruptive. However, you will not receive credit if a pop-quiz is given toward the end of the class period.
