Spring 2017 Grading Policy:
Students are graded on a Pass/Fail basis. To receive a Pass, a student is required to attend a minimum of 75% of the seminars. Arriving more than 5 minutes late is considered missing 1/2 of that seminar. Arriving more than 15 minutes late is considered missing the entire seminar.  Index cards will be distributed in each seminar. Students should fill out the card with the following information: on the front: your name, the date, the name of the speaker, and the title of the talk; on the back: write one thoughtful question you would like to ask the speaker about the talk.   If time permits, ask your question live.  In any case, turn in this card after the talk.

Unless taking lecture notes, using a laptop during the seminar is not permitted.
