I didn't take an attendence list at the first e-mail so at the next lecture can you tell me if you were at the first lecture. I have also made a table which reflects my current record of which reading responses you have submitted:

Just to confirm DA2205 students just have to attend the first 4 lectures of the course. If you are not able to attend one of these lectures then you can come to one of the subsequent lectures in DD3001.
