ASSIGNMENTS AND PROJECTS
You may be given a variety of individual and group assignments and projects throughout the
quarter. All assignments are to be written clearly, with correct spelling and grammar and with
sources cited properly. If you are absent on a day in which student groups complete in-class
assignments or projects, you may NOT be able to make-up that assignment or project.
Therefore, your regular attendance is critical to your ability to complete and achieve credit for
all assignments and projects. If you miss a lecture it is your responsibility to obtain notes,
assignments and homework from another student.
EXAMS AND QUIZZES
Exams will take place as noted in the lecture outline. Exams and outline are subject to change
based on student progression/understanding, weather problems, etc. Quizzes will be
announced and may be in-class or take home.
ATTENDANCE
Students are expected to attend ALL lectures. If a lecture is missed, it is the responsibility of the
student to obtain notes, assignments or homework from another student. Class will begin ontime. If you are habitually late, your grade could be negatively affected. If a planned absence is
unavoidable on an exam date, please make arrangements BEFORE the exam date with the
instructor. Unanticipated missed exams and missed quizzes may not be made up.
ACEDEMIC PROFESSIONALISM
Students will be expected to act in a professional manner during class sessions and while on
campus. Cheating or plagiarism (copying from another source without using citation) will not be
tolerated. Cheating will result in a zero for the work on which cheating occurred (exam, quiz, or
assignments).
Please refrain from conversations during lectures. Silence cell phones and other electronic
devices. If a call must be taken, please immediately leave class and take call outside of
classroom. Texting will not be tolerated during class.
