Textbook: Although there is no textbook requirement, there are technology requirements (see digital storage below).
Attendance: Daily attendance is required of all students, as the content of daily class discussions can not be obtained in any other way than attending class. Class participation constitutes a significant portion of the overall course grade, and class attendance is a prerequisite for class participation. Starting with the second class missed, each class missed will result in a .3 drop in maximum overall grade (eg. 2 misses = max 3.7, 3 misses = max 3.3, etc...)
