Late Submission of Course Materials:
I will accept assigned coursework at any time prior to the final exam. However, assignments turned in more than eight days after the due date will receive a 50% penalty. If you are absent for a TDY or illness this penalty may be waived.
Classroom Rules of Conduct:
The concept of academic freedom will rule. This means that anyone may challenge the remarks, ideas, and concepts of anyone else in the classroom with logical arguments. In no case will physical or mental violence be tolerated.
We will respect the confidences of all who present personal information. In other words, we will not discuss their information outside of the classroom even with other students in this class.
All are expected to come to each class period with the assignment read and ready to discuss the assigned work each class period.
If you are going to be TDY please email the instructor with the dates of the TDY prior to the time of the TDY. If you miss class due to illness, try to email the instructor prior to the absence or as soon after the missed class period as possible.
