From time-to-time, I will need to send e-mail messages to the class. These
messages will be addressed to your official Goucher e-mail addresses. You
are responsible for checking your e-mail on a timely basis.
- Cell phones must be turned off or set to ``silent'' during class. If you
must enter late, do so as unobtrusively as possible. Likewise if you must
leave early. Please use mental telepathy if you must hold a personal
conference during class. I have ways of making you not talk!
- Academic dishonesty will not be tolerated. We are all bound by the
Academic Honor Code.
