LECTURES:  You  are expected to keep silence unless you have a question.  You are encouraged to ask questions as soon as something is unclear to you. Even if you have the textbook, I strongly advise you to take lecture notes.

 ACADEMIC DISHONESTY:  No cheating during the exams  and  quizzes  are allowed. Cheating includes but not limited to both providing and copying information during the exam and quizzes. It is considered as a discipline violation. Hence in case of cheating, both parts will certainly get a score of zero from the corresponding exam or quiz  and disciplinary action will be applied.
