Attendance and classroom expectations.
 Regular attendance is essential to your success in this course. If you miss a
class, you are responsible for getting missed material from a classmate.
 Lab attendance is required.
 If you are anticipate being absent on the day of an exam, please make
arrangements before the test date. Unanticipated test make-ups may not be
allowed, or may be subject to substantial point penalty. Practical tests and
quizzes cannot be made-up, if missed.
 Be aware that your movements and noise (shuffling papers, closing books,
zipping backpacks) when arriving late or departing early are disruptive to
other students and that it is common courtesy to keep these disruptions to a
minimum.
 If you cannot be mentally present in class, i.e., you feel the need to read
the newspaper or other irrelevant materials, sleep, or be otherwise
disengaged...please do not come to class- it is distracting to others.
 The use of pagers, text messaging devices or cell phones is strongly
discouraged during class time, except for emergency purposes. If use is
observed, you will be asked to leave the room.
Plagiarism and cheating
 Any required coursework (assignments, projects, tests, etc.) in which one has
represented someone else's work as their own is plagiarism. Plagiarism
includes allowing others to misrepresent your work as their own.
 Cheating will result in a zero score for the work on which cheating occurred
(assignments, exams, and any other required coursework).
Class Accommodations
Students with disabilities who believe they may need academic adjustments,
auxiliary aids or services to fully participate in course requirements are
encouraged to register with the Access and Disability Services (ADS) Office,
Room 115 in the Administration Building. You may also call the ADS Office to
make an appointment to meet with the ADS Coordinator at (253) 840-8335 or
253-864-3301. Students requesting accommodations must obtain the “Approved
Quarterly Academic Adjustments, Auxiliary Aids or Services" (green) form
provided by ADS.
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 (preferably
typed), 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.
Emergency Procedures for Classrooms
Call 911 and then Campus Safety in response to an imminent threat to persons
or property. In the event of an evacuation (intermittent horns & strobes), gather
all personal belongings and leave the building using the nearest available safe
exit. Be prepared to be outside for one hour and stay a minimum of 200 feet
from any building or structure. So long as it is safe to do so students are
expected to stay on campus and return to class after evacuations that last less
then 15 minutes. Do not attempt to re-enter the building until instructed by an
Evacuation Director (identified by orange vests) or by three horn blasts or bell
rings. Please notify the nearest Campus Safety Officer or Evacuation Director of
any one left in the building or in need of assistance.

Lab Quizzes
Students should expect a quiz at the start of lab every week at a minimum, with
2 during some weeks. Quizzes will be announced and cover material presented in
the previous lab or two. Missed quizzes cannot be “made-up”
Lecture Pop quizzes
Students should be prepared for quizzes on recent material. These may be at
anytime during a class period. Because it is understood students may need to
miss class occasionally, the overall grade quiz assumes 6 quizzes to achieve 5
quizzes worth of points. For example: if there were 6 quizzes total at 10 points
each the quiz grade would be based on 50 points =100%. In this way, one
missed quiz receives no penalty, and full points on all 6 quizzes provides an
opportunity for “extra” points.
Missed quizzes cannot be “made-up”.
