Grades will be based on:

Ongoing Contributions to Class (the value you add to everyone's learning: thoughtful questions, pertinent answers, insight, logic, substance, and always courtesy - more than mere attendance)
Penalty for excessive absences (see below)
the Contribution component will have 2.5% deducted for each absence falling within the definition of excess (see below)
Factual Quizzes (cumulative) 7.5%
