Special Note: If you are a student with a disability, please meet with me immediately to discuss the accommodations you will need during class activity, examinations, and out of class assignments in order to participate fully and demonstrate your abilities.
1. Academic Honesty: Plagiarism
or other forms of academic dishonesty on any assignments, tests, or quizzes
will not be tolerated. If the instructor finds that a student has engaged
in dishonesty, the student may be referred to the Dean of Academic Affairs
for appropriate action.
2. Quizzes and Exams: Students are expected to be present for all exams. No exams or quizzes may be made up unless the student has contacted the instructor and received permission prior to the date of the original exam or quiz. This includes students participating in athletics who must arrange to take the quiz or exam on or before the scheduled date.
3. Assignments: Assignments, unless otherwise specified by the instructor, are to be completed individually. While students are encouraged to consult each other for ideas for assignments, the solutions should be completed individually. Any help one student gives another should be instructional help only. If the instructor feels that a student has not completed an assignment individually, the instructor may question the student on that assignment. The student should be able to explain how he/she worked the problem and should be able to work similar problems. Late assignments will not be accepted without permission.
4. Class Preparation and Participation:
a) Keep up with reading assignments. To receive the maximum grade on attendance and participation the student must read assignments prior to class and be prepared to ask questions and participate in discussions.
b) Take good notes and review notes on a regular basis as well as promptly begin and continue work on assignments as they are assigned.
c) Attendance is required. If you must miss class due to illness or other valid excuse (e.g. athletic event) please send me email or telephone with an explanation.
5. Getting Help:
Students who do not understand a concept should do the following:
a) Ask questions in class. (More than likely other students do not understand as well.)
b) Seek individual help from the instructor. I am more than willing to give you the extra help you may need. Come in during office hours or make an appointment. Tutoring (free) can also be arranged either through me or through counseling services.
c) Share with me any concerns you may have or any suggestions you have for the class structure that will help you learn more effectively.
