To do well in this course, arrive at class on time, ready to work, with all materials and prepared project. We will have two 10-minute breaks during class. Late attendance, extended breaks and leaving early will affect your grade.

Everyone starts this class with an excellent grade. To maintain your standing you are expected to be an enthusiastic participant in this class. Participation and dedication is a large part of your total grade.


Please be sure to check your City Tech email (or whichever email you provide to me on the first session) on a constant basis. I will be contacting you via email with reminders, changes and other pertinent information.

Check email at least 24 hrs before class or more often. Make sure that your email mailbox is not overloaded. It is your responsibility to manage your mailbox so that lines of communication are open and available.

Project handouts, lecture PDFs, syllabus and bonus materials are posted in their respective tabs on this website. If you misplace your project handouts you will find them on the site.

Academic Integrity Standards

Students and all others who work with information, ideas, texts, images, music, inventions, and other intellectual property owe their audience and sources accuracy and honesty in using, crediting, and citing sources.

As a community of intellectual and professional workers, the College recognizes its responsibility for providing instruction in information literacy and academic integrity, offering models of good practice, and responding vigilantly and appropriately to infractions of academic integrity. Accordingly, academic dishonesty is prohibited in The City University of New York and at New York City College of Technology and is punishable by penalties, including failing grades, suspension, and expulsion.
