*As you will see as you view the tentative schedule, there are eleven project sessions in total; you will be required to
submit homework from only eight of the eleven assignments from these project sessions. If you so desire, you may
submit all eleven and at the end of the semester, I will discard your lowest three scores. Because this flexibility has
been built in, I will not accept any late assignments during the semester (no exceptions allowed under any
circumstance).
Make sure you TYPE your name and exercise number in the upper-right corner. If an assignment has multiple sheets,
staple them together, sequencing them according to the order of the exercise. Disorganized assignments (pages out
of order, mislabeled, unreadable, etc.) will not be graded and thus, will receive zero points.

Class participation points will be awarded based upon attendance, preparedness for class, utilization of class time,
and completion of in-class assignments (not the same as the project assignments). Preparedness for class is defined
as being able to discuss and demonstrate concepts when you are asked to. Utilization of class time is defined simply
as using your time wisely. Using the Internet or playing games during class time is not proper utilization of
class time, is distracting to those around you, and is NOT allowed. If you do these things, you will receive a
zero (0) for the unit we are covering.
Please do not complete and save assignments to disk with the intention of printing the assignments in the lab ten
minutes before class begins. It has happened previously that 1) students have had problems printing due to software
used at other locations, disk capacity, etc., and/or 2) the printers in the lab are not working. IF THIS HAPPENS TO YOU,
YOUR ASSIGNMENT WILL BE CONSIDERED LATE AND WILL NOT BE ACCEPTED. Play it safe: be prepared and have your
assignments ready when you come in for class.
Test dates are listed on the course schedule. Therefore, it is your responsibility to be prepared for a test on
scheduled test days. If you have a legitimate excuse (as determined by myself) on the day/time of the scheduled test
and contact me prior to or during the class test time, you may be allowed to take the test; make up tests will be in
essay format.
Honesty Policy:
Work presented by a student with his/her name is work completed by that student. Misrepresentation of work is
dealt with severely in accordance with the University catalog (page 15) and instructor’s discretion.
Disability-Related Accommodations:
In compliance with Lake Superior State University policy and equal access laws, disability-related accommodations
or services are available. Students who desire such services are to meet with the professor in a timely manner,
preferably the first week of class, to discuss their disability-related needs. Students will not receive services until
they register with the Resource Center for Students with Disabilities (RCSD). Proper registration will enable the
RCSD to verify the disability and determine reasonable academic accommodations. RCSD is located in the Library
101. The telephone number is (906) 635-2454.
