Add/Drop Policy
Given the interest in the class this quarter, and given the importance of starting as a team as soon as possible, no adds or drops will be allowed after the FIRST week of classes.

All students enrolled in the course will earn a letter grade based upon: (a) class attendance and participation, (b) presentation(s) in class, (c) overall project, and (d) performance appraisals by team members. You will receive one overall grade at the end of the class; no partial grades will be given, nor will a particular distribution be enforced among the above four. You will, however, receive weekly feedback concerning your progress.
