Attendance, reading quizzes, and discussion points will be recorded in the Top Hat (www.tophat.com) classroom response system. You will be able to submit your unique attendance code and answers to in-class clicker questions using Apple or Android smartphones and tablets, laptops, or through text message. Students will need to answer 80% of their discussion questions to earn full participation credit, regardless of whether the answers are correct, but must be in class to have points for answering clicker questions count. Nevertheless, the quality of oral discussion is also an important factor in determining final participation grades.
