ATTENDANCE & EXPECTATIONS
This is a hands-on class, with much of the material being accumulative. You will need to spend at east 4 - 6 hours a week, outside of class, reading, preparing assignments and labs.
It is imperative that you attend class regularly. If you are absent more than four times, you will receive an F for the course (except under exceptional circumstances). You are responsible for all missed work. Make-up quizzes may be given at the discretion of the instructor- make sure you contact me BEFORE you miss a quiz.
Students will be evaluated on quizzes, labs, and class participation. Assignments will not be accepted more than one week late. It is important that assignments be handed in on time and complete. All assignments will be submitted through electronically through BB.
It is your responsibility to be sure you have submitted everything on time. You should frequently check to see which assignments are due and which have been graded. You may calculate your grade at any time by dividing the number of points you have earned by the total points possible to that point. Extensions and make-ups will only be given under extreme circumstances.
Personal computer problems are not an acceptable excuse for late work.
Please complete reading assignments prior to class.
Please review the college academic calendar for important dates.
Students are urged to retain all graded work returned to them until final grades have been received from the college. You can print the Canvas Grades page for your records.
Also, students should consult Student Records, Rights, and Responsibilities in the College Catalog concerning important rules governing students in their academic work.
Plagiarism: Plagiarism and other forms of academic cheating are unacceptable and are considered as MAJOR infractions of the Student Code of Conduct and College Policy and will be dealt with as published in the College Catalog.
It is imperative that you attend class regularly. That means logging in to this class at least twice a week. If you are absent more than three weeks total, you will receive an F for the course (except under exceptional circumstances). You are responsible for all missed work. Make-up quizzes may be given at the discretion of the instructor- make sure you contact me BEFORE you miss a quiz.
If there is a need to withdraw from this course, do so officially from the Admissions Office.
If you have a disability and wish to discuss academic accommodations, I encourage you to see me as soon as possible.
