Classroom Rules of Conduct:
Academic Honesty:Academic integrity is the foundation of the academic community.

Park University 2007-2008 Undergraduate Catalog Page 85-86Though you will be working in pairs in the lab, each student will write his or her own lab report. The data will obviously be the same, but the interpretation of that data and presentation of results must be individual.
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 2007-2008 Undergraduate Catalog Page 85
Attendance Policy:Instructors are required to maintain attendance records and to report absences via the online attendance reporting system.
