Is the discussion section graded on attendance?

I don't think it is directly, but we turn in weekly homework at discussion

I don't think it is but the homework turned in during discussion is graded.

I would think if you had to miss a discussion one week you could email your TA and ask to give into your HW during a lecture during that week. Just an idea.

Attendance is not taken at discussion, however homework is returned and turned in during discussion sections. If you were planning on missing, someone in the class can turn it in for you.

Discussions are not graded on attendance, as the TAs do not take roll. However, handing in homework can be thought of as a participation/attendance grade that we do turn in during discussion.

The TA doesn't take attendance, but having to turn in your homework during discussion basically requires you to be there.

The TAs don't take attendance during discussion but that's when you turn in HW and they go over practice problems or concepts so they're pretty helpful.

No, but we have to hand in the homework. The practise questions in the discussion are usually helpful.
