participation grade

 
Every 3 weeks you will be given 20 points in participation.  3 weeks is a good way to break up the quarter into approximately 3 chunks.  By showing up to class every day with enthusiasm, a positive attitude, following rules and actively participating you should earn your 20 points easily.  However, there are ways to lose points.  Below are many examples of what you can do to lose points and how many points will be taken off of your participation grade.  Participation typically accounts for 20% of your overall grade.
