Each tutorial session has a tutorial warm-up, which is a ten-minute exercise that asks questions to have you confront ideas that may be challenging to you. These warm-ups are not graded, but you are required to take them. They are used in research to determine how effective the tutorials are in enhancing your learning of the material.
The tutorials form an important part of the course. Attendance is mandatory. You are allowed to miss three tutorial sessions without penalty. Missing more than three sessions reduces your overall grade by 5%. Each tutorial session has a homework assignment that is due the following week. Homework is due at the beginning of the class. Students found working on their homework during the tutorial session will receive no credit for those homework assignments.
Each quiz and the final exam will have at least one question that is based on the tutorials.
