Attendance in class is vital to your success in it. If you are forced to miss class, you must contact someone who attended and get the notes.

Because of this, it is valuable to get to know others in the class and exchange contact information. But that is valuable for other reasons, too. Mathematical sciences are much easier to learn if you can verbalize your questions and answers. (I suspect this is useful in other disciplines, too.) Group discussions and problem sessions can make your studies much more efficient than they would be otherwise.

For the same reason, you are encouraged to come to office hours.
