Learning Outcomes: Core Learning Outcomes
Late Submission of Course Materials:
Classroom Rules of Conduct:
Academic Honesty:Academic integrity is the foundation of the academic community. 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. Park University 2006-2007 Undergraduate Catalog Page 87-89
Plagiarism:Plagiarism involves the use of quotations without quotation marks, the use of quotations without indication of the source, the use of another's idea without acknowledging the source, the submission of a paper, laboratory report, project, or class assignment (any portion of such) prepared by another person, or incorrect paraphrasing. Park University 2006-2007 Undergraduate Catalog Page 87
Attendance Policy:Instructors are required to maintain attendance records and to report absences via the online attendance reporting system.
Park University 2006-2007 Undergraduate Catalog Page 89-90Attendance will be recorded daily. Any student who accumulates 4 CONSECUTIVE absences will be automatically withdrawn from the course by the institution.
No distinction will be made between excused and unexcused absences. In fact, these terms do not exist: you are either present or absent. If you are not in class FOR ANY REASON, then you will be counted absent. It is the student's responsibility to sign the attendance sheet or else be counted absent.
There will be a mandatory field trip. Early in the class we will visit the Linda Hall Library. We will receive a library orientation, learn how to use the library to gather research material for the major term paper, learn the locations of the mathematical history resources, and tour the Rare Book Room. The date for this field trip is TBA.
Disability Guidelines:Park University is committed to meeting the needs of all students that meet the criteria for special assistance. These guidelines are designed to supply directions to students concerning the information necessary to accomplish this goal. It is Park University's policy to comply fully with federal and state law, including Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 and the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990, regarding students with disabilities. In the case of any inconsistency between these guidelines and federal and/or state law, the provisions of the law will apply. Additional information concerning Park University's policies and procedures related to disability can be found on the Park University web page: http://www.park.edu/disability .
