Educational Philosophy: The best learning is by doing; this immerses the student in experience and process. Simple hearing and seeing and repeating often do not suffice to learn a complex topic, but learners remember most of what they do. This course is designed as a hands-on undergraduate research project supervised directly by a faculty mentor to emphasize the higher order skills of a student who has successfully reached junior standing. Critical thinking, creation of an experimental plan, review, analysis, extrapolation, interpolation, evaluation, prediction, and employment of knowledge are emphasized in this course of learning.
Grading: The grading plan is set out above.
Late Submission of Course Materials: Not allowed for any reason.
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.

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.
