COURSE TEXTBOOK(S): Edwards, Hostetler, Larson. Calculus with Analytic Geometry. 8th edition. Houghton Mifflin Co, Boston, 2005.

ACADEMIC HONESTY: “Academic Honesty is required of all members of a learning community. Hence, Park will not tolerate cheating or plagiarism on tests, examinations, papers or other course assignments. Students who engage in such dishonesty may be given failing grades or expelled from Park.”

PLAGIARISM: Plagiarism—the appropriation or imitation of the language or ideas of another person and presenting them as one’s original work—sometimes occurs through carelessness or ignorance. Students who are uncertain about proper documentation of sources should consult their instructors.”

ATTENDANCE POLICY: Instructors are required to keep attendance records and report absences. The instructor may excuse absences for cogent reasons, but missed work must be made up within the term of enrollment. Work missed through unexcused absences must also be made up within the term of enrollment, but unexcused absences may carry further penalties. In the event of two consecutive weeks of unexcused absences in a term of enrollment, the student will be administratively withdrawn, resulting in a grade of “F”. An Incomplete will not be issued to a student who has unexcused or excessive absences recorded for a course. Students receiving Military Tuition Assistance (TA) or Veterans Administration (VA) educational benefits must not exceed three unexcused absences in the term of enrollment. Excessive absences will be reported to the appropriate agency and may result in a monetary penalty to the student. Reports of F grade (attendance or academic) resulting from excessive absence for students receiving financial assistance from agencies not mentioned above will be reported to the appropriate agency. Students required to miss class due to illness, military duties (TDY), or other justifiable reason (as deemed by the instructor), must notify the office and/or instructor. Students who miss classes or miss an examination will coordinate with the instructor to do make-up work or reschedule the exam missed. It is the responsibility of the student to get with the instructor to reschedule missed exams or a grade of zero will be given. It is strongly advised that you be present for class each night. Homework assignments are due without fail and should be turned into the office on days missed.

LATE SUBMISSION OF COURSE MATERIALS: The instructor will accept assignments late for partial credit only for justifiable reasons, as deemed by the instructor. Students should not expect to receive extra time on completing assignments. Since the course is compacted into eight weeks, students cannot afford to fall behind in the work.

COURSE ASSESSMENT: examinations, quizzes, homework

CLASSROOM RULES OF CONDUCT: Each student is expected to attend and participate in all scheduled classes. Asking questions allows the instructor to assess the student’s level of learning and provides deeper understanding for the student, so it is highly encouraged. Students should also come to class prepared everyday including bringing their calculator and all work that is turned in must be neat and completed in pencil.

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 American with Disabilities Act of 1990, regarding students with disabilities and, to the extent of any inconsistency between these guidelines and federal and/or state law, the provisions of the law will apply.
