# Are 'special' lectures that take the entire 50 minutes of class to explain. If you miss one of these lectures without a legitimate and documented excuse, you CANNOT come to my office hours and ask me to explain all of the material to you (unless you have a legitimate and documented reason for your absence). However, if you do attend these lectures and have questions about the material, you CAN, and are encouraged to, come to my office and ask questions.
