iClickers You can miss 3 lectures without penalty. You can be late once without penalty. After that if you are late and missed the question, you must come to me after class to explain your lateness. Be prepared to show me the notes you took during class. The number of questions that you answer will count towards the grade. Giving your iClicker to someone else to answer for you is academic fraud. You and the person who takes your iClicker face an investigation. If you think your iClicker is not working, please come to sign in after class. Be prepared to show me the notes you took during class. 3
