

Use your official ONID email address. Forwarding your email to an email server outside
of OSU is not recommended (such as hotmail, gmail, or yahoo).
Check your email daily.
When emailing your TA or the instructor put “ENGR 211: Brief summary” in the
subject line.
The instructor and TA’s cannot answer questions over email which are not fully
formulated and specific.
Do not write an email that simply states, “I don’t understand question #2.”
Email lends itself to answering VERY SPECIFIC questions such as, “Is the vertical
dimension in Fig 2.3 on page 87, 9.8 in or 9.6 in? It is unclear in the figure”.
It is your responsibility to formulate clear, logical, specific, and professional email
communication. If not, your instructor or TA may not be able to respond.
The instructor does not read email in the evenings or over weekends. Please expect
approximately 1-2 business days for a response to email. If you do not receive a
response to your email within 2 business days, please review the instructor and/or TA
email addresses, the instructions above, and email again.
Homework
Homework assignments will be posted on the course Canvas site. Assignments may be
comprised of both online problems (MasteringEngineering) and traditional handwritten work.
Handwritten problems must conform to the format posted on Canvas. Handwritten
assignments can only be submitted once (no “make-up” points allowed).
Online homework problems require handwritten supporting calculations which should be
neatly organized within your class notebook. Your instructor may request to see your course
notebook at any time throughout the term, and points may be deducted from your
homework score if you lack supporting documentation for your assignments.
Recitation
Recitation exercises may take a variety of forms, including but not limited to: group or
individual problem-solving, quizzes, and discussion. Students must do both the weekly
homework and recitation problems to learn the material.
Late Work
Some online homework assignments can be turned in late, in which case the associated late
penalty will be posted alongside the assignment. Unless otherwise noted, the standard late
penalty for online homework is 30% off per day. Be aware that some assignments simply
cannot be turned in late. For example, if a midterm is approaching, late work is not accepted.
This course is offered through Oregon State University Extended Campus. For more information, contact:

Email: [email protected] Tel: 800-667-1465
If you ever have a question about whether or not late work is accepted for a particular
assignment, or the associated penalty, you should first check Canvas and/or Mastering, and
then ask the instructor if further clarification is needed.
Recitations and handwritten submissions of homework cannot be turned in late.
Grade Disputes
Final grades are non-negotiable. If you think a grading error has been made for any graded
assignment throughout the term, you must bring this to the attention of the TA/instructor
within two weeks from the date the grade for that assignment was posted. At the end of the
term, grade disputes for the last homework and recitation assignment must be acknowledged
before taking the final exam. Grade disputes brought up after final grades are posted will not
be considered.

Additional details given during the term
Additional details given during the term
Exams will be conducted as timed Canvas sessions (or timed MasteringEngineering sessions).
Exams require a pre-approved proctor and it is your responsibility to find and set up a
proctor. A proctor is a person that will supervise you while taking the exam to ensure academic
integrity. Ecampus provides a list of pre-approved proctoring locations. Proctors cannot be
relatives, friends, coaches, business associates, etc.
For on-campus students, Ecampus provides proctoring free-of-charge on the OSU Corvallis
campus, but dates and times can be limited; therefore you must sign up early to reserve a spot.
Off-campus students can find a list of acceptable proctoring sites on the Ecampus website.
Ecampus recommends submitting your proctor at least two weeks prior to the exam date to
ensure your request is processed in time. Makeup exams will not be given if you do not
schedule your proctor in time. For more information regarding proctored exams see the
following website: http://ecampus.oregonstate.edu/services/proctoring/
Makeup exams will not routinely be given. Excused absences will not be given for airline
reservations, routine illness (colds, flu, stomach aches), or other common ailments. Excused
absences will generally not be granted after the absence has occurred, except under very
unusual circumstances. If you must miss an exam for a valid emergency (medical emergency,
death in the family), you must request permission from the instructor BEFORE the regularly
scheduled exam start time. Then, at the instructor’s discretion, in the case of a valid
emergency, missed exams may be made up within one week of the regularly scheduled exam.
Documentation of the emergency will be required.
If you do not let the instructor know in advance of a conflict or emergency, you will not be
allowed a makeup exam.
According to the OSU Final Examination Policy, re-scheduling a final exam may not be possible
even for the most meritorious reasons.

Notebook / Course Binder
All students are expected to maintain a course notebook (3-ring binder). Your Statics notebook
will be an excellent reference for your future classes. In addition, a well-maintained notebook
can provide reference material for potential employers, and it will serve as a study aid when
you study for the FE exam.
Online homework problems require handwritten supporting calculations which should be
neatly organized within your notebook. Your instructor may request to see your course
notebook at any time throughout the term, and points may be deducted from your
homework score if you lack supporting documentation for your assignments.
Maintaining a Positive Learning Environment, Online Communication, and Participation
It is your instructors’ responsibilities to maintain a positive learning environment for all
students in this class. Your instructors take this responsibility seriously and will inform
members of the class if their behavior makes it difficult for him or her to carry out this task. As
a fellow learner, you are asked to respect the learning needs of your classmates.




Online threaded discussions are public messages, and all writings in this area will be
viewable by the entire class or assigned group members. If you prefer that only the
instructor sees your communication, send it by email.
Posting of personal contact information is discouraged (e.g. telephone numbers,
address, personal website address).
Online Instructor Response Policy: I strive to reply to email within 24-48 hours, but be
aware that I do not check email in the evenings after 5pm or on the weekends.
Observation of "Netiquette": All your online communications need to be composed with
fairness, honesty and tact. Spelling and grammar are very important in an online
course. What you put into an online course reflects on your level of professionalism.
Here are a couple of references that discuss writing online:

Disruptive Behavior
While the University is a place where the free exchange of ideas and concepts allows for debate
and disagreement, all classroom behavior and discourse should reflect the values of respect
and civility. Behaviors which are disruptive to the learning environment will not be tolerated.
As your instructors, we are dedicated to establishing a learning environment that promotes
diversity of race, culture, gender, sexual orientation, and physical disability. Anyone noticing
discriminatory behavior in this class, or feeling discriminated against should bring it to the
attention of the instructors or other University personnel as appropriate.
ENGR 211 students are expected to conduct themselves according to the practices outlined in
the OSU CCE Honor Code, Code of Student Conduct, and CCE as a Professional Community
documents. http://cce.oregonstate.edu/node/257
Academic Dishonesty
The instructors of this class take the issue of academic honesty very seriously. You are to be
honest and ethical in your academic work. There is a “zero tolerance” policy in effect for

cheating in this class. Any instance in which a student is caught cheating will be handled in strict
accordance with the policies outlined at:
http://oregonstate.edu/studentconduct/academic-misconduct
In order to provide students with a positive learning environment and promote a professional
environment in the classroom, students are required to abide by the OSU Student Conduct Code
(http://oregonstate.edu/studentconduct/feature-stories/student-conduct-code ), the CCE Honor
Code, and the CCE Code of Student Conduct (http://cce.oregonstate.edu/node/257).
Academic or Scholarly Dishonesty is defined as an act of deception in which a Student seeks to
claim credit for the work or effort of another person, or uses unauthorized materials or
fabricated information in any academic work or research, either through the Student’s own
efforts or the efforts of another. It includes:





Cheating - use or attempted use of unauthorized materials, information or study
aids, or an act of deceit by which a Student attempts to misrepresent mastery of
academic effort or information. This includes but is not limited to unauthorized
copying or collaboration on a test or assignment, using prohibited materials and
texts, any misuse of an electronic device, or using any deceptive means to gain
academic credit.
Fabrication - falsification or invention of any information including but not
limited to falsifying research, inventing or exaggerating data, or listing incorrect
or fictitious references.
Assisting - helping another commit an act of academic dishonesty. This includes
but is not limited to paying or bribing someone to acquire a test or assignment,
changing someone's grades or academic records, taking a test/doing an
assignment for someone else by any means, including misuse of an electronic
device. It is a violation of Oregon state law to create and offer to sell part or all of
an educational assignment to another person (ORS 165.114).
Tampering- altering or interfering with evaluation instruments or documents.
Plagiarism - representing the words or ideas of another person or presenting
someone else's words, ideas, artistry or data as one's own, or using one’s own
previously submitted work. Plagiarism includes but is not limited to copying
another person's work (including unpublished material) without appropriate
referencing, presenting someone else's opinions and theories as one's own, or
working jointly on a project and then submitting it as one's own.
These acts of Academic Dishonesty constitute violations of the Honor Code and are subject to
violation reporting as indicated below. However, other instances of academic dishonesty or
misconduct may be defined by the faculty. The Honor Code may appear on exams and other
assignments to remind students of their obligation to uphold the Honor Code and to maintain
the highest level of ethical standards.
Disability
Accommodations are collaborative efforts between students, faculty and Disability Access
Services (DAS). Students with accommodations approved through DAS are responsible for
contacting the faculty member in charge of the course prior to or during the first week of the

Student Evaluation of Teaching
We encourage you to engage in the course evaluation process each term. Course evaluation
results are extremely important and are used to help improve this course and the learning
experience of future students. Results from the multiple choice questions are tabulated
anonymously and go directly to instructors and department heads. Student comments on the
open-ended questions are compiled and confidentially forwarded to each instructor, per OSU
procedures. The online Student Evaluation of Teaching form will be available toward the end of
each term, and you will be sent instructions through ONID. You will login to “Student Online
Services” to respond to the online questionnaire. The results on the form are anonymous and
are not tabulated until after grades are posted.
