Attendance does not count for your grade directly, but since there's a quiz (or an exam) nearly every day, you really shouldn't skip class anyway. (In any case, it's harder to learn if you skip!) I will normally use the quiz (or exam) to take attendance. (On the first day of class, I'll pass around an attendance sheet.)
If you expect to be absent, then tell me ahead of time! That way, we can arrange for you to ask any questions that you need and to make up quizzes and exams.
