As stated on the syllabus, the course centers around the capstone project and discussion sessions. These activities are meaningful only if students are present to interact with other students and the instructor. Therefore, attendance is required at all classes and is a graded component of the course.

Attendance is worth 5% of the final grade, computed as follows:
