Because this course is concerned with your long term health, there are a couple of long term projects built into the course. One of these involves the use of the diet analysis program. This program is free, you do not need to provide any financial information; however, you should enroll with your Park email address. This project will extend over a 2 or 3 week period, but does involve daily recording of foods. You are not able to retrieve individual material that you entered earlier in the week, so it is wise to run the daily report and then simply copy and paste the report either into word or into the provided dropbox. The second project involves physical fitness or wellness and extends over a longer period of time. Although the directions are specific about the activities that you participate in, if there are any questions please contact the instructor

Because each student has the primary responsibility for being academically honest, students are advised to read and understand all sections of this policy relating to standards of conduct and academic life.
