Educational Philosophy: This facilitator's educational philosophy is one of involving the students in classroom time, based on reading and preparing for class with the textbook, and making a good faith attempt at every homework problem. We will also increase the student's comfort with income tax software and paper forms, and internet resources about this subject. Emphasis and encouragement is given to exploring this area and its general rules, that once learned, can be further explored to make the subject more interesting and relevent.

Students must read all the textbook assignments prior to class to enable their understanding for the lecture and in class work time. Participation in class reflects this committment to the reading, and will be included as part of the homework grade.
Assigned homework deserves a good faith attempt and is turned in at the beginning of class, with credit given for effort. Homework not turned in on time cannot be made up.
The course grade for students will be based on the overall average of homework and tests taken during the course in accordance with the weighting of the various requirements as stated in the syllabus.
All final exams in all School of Business courses will be comprehensive and will be closed book and closed notes. They will constitute 30% of the total course grade and will not be a take-home exam. They will be completed during the test week in the period designated by the registrar or by the Proctor in the case online courses.

Classroom Rules of Conduct:
Cell phones are off, unless we are on break. If you must take or make a call, go out in the hall so as not to disrupt the class.
Coming in late may find the classroom door closed. Tell your employer you must be on time to class to get full credit for your homework, which is turned in at the start of class. We will also have announcements and the first quiz at the start of class(which is timed) so it is very important that you get to class on time.
