MAKE-UP POLICY
The enrollment in a group is for consecutively scheduled classes. However, in case students miss a class, we do send an email with the material covered, the homework assignment and handouts (if any). This way, students are able to study the material, do the homework and be prepared for the subsequent class.

In general, if students miss one class, is not something that would jeopardize the course. However, each student has a way to process new information.
