If you are a student in my section, then I expect you to follow these three rules:
  1. Please call me Michael. I really don't like being called Mike. Also, please note that it is spelled Michael, not Micheal. I guarantee that all the other Michaels you meet in your life will appreciate it if you can spell their name correctly. Similarly, if I misspell your name, or use one that you do not like, then please correct me.
  2. Show up for class. 5% of your grade in 6.170 is based on participation, so if you do not show up for class, then you will not receive any credit for this part of your grade.
  3. Hand in your work on time. The course policy for 6.170 is that late work will not be accepted. Exceptions to this rule may be made in extenuating circumstances, but such exceptions can only be granted by the lecturers. Thus, if you have an extenuating circumstance, and you need an extension, then email your request to 6.170-lecturers@mit.edu and CC me on it.
