The instructor’s educational philosophy is based on inquiry and constructivism utilizing lecture demonstrations, discussions, readings, laboratory investigations, quizzes, examinations, videos, internet, formal write-ups, a multicultural research paper and a portfolio.
Learning Outcomes: Core Learning Outcomes
The Portfolio assignment is worth 500 pts (out of 2000).
For the portfolio assignment, in addition to the multicultural paper, the student will select up to two assignments, quizzes, lab reports, tests that the student believes demonstrates that they have achieved mastery of the Learning outcomes listed above. For each outcome the student will write a reflection paper explaining why those particular assignments, quizzes, lab report, or tests were selected and how they demonstrate the mastery of the outcome in question. Points will be given for creativity and analysis. This is one way for the student to take control of their own grade in this course.
Link to Class RubricClass Assessment:
Exams 650 points ( 4@165 pts.)
Homework & Quizzes 300 points(Hw 50, Qz 250)
Laboratory 300 points
Multicultural Paper 250 points
Portfolio 500 Points
Total 2000 points
The traditional scale is 90% = A; 80% = B; 70% = C; 60% = D; <60% = F.
HOMEWORK & QUIZZES:
Any homework will be due at the beginning of the class period on the assigned due date. In order for you to receive credit for a problem on homework assignments you must show your work, equations used, and box in your answer. Late work will not be accepted. There will be weekly quizzes at the end of each lab period covering the homework, reading, and lecture material for that week. The lowest quiz score will be dropped. As an incentive to keep up and be thorough on homework assignments, I will replace the lowest exam grade with your cumulative homework average.
Exams will consist of multiple choice, matching, definitions, listing, problems, short-answer, and essay questions. You will be allowed to use one 3x5 note card front and back on the exams. I would caution you however to be very familiar with your notes when you take the exam. If you have to spend a lot of time looking through your notes during the exam it could keep you from getting finished. Also, you will serve yourself better if you read through the test before starting. This allows you to concentrate on material you are more familiar with first, so you can have more time for the questions that you may find more difficult. In addition you will only be allowed to use non-programmable scientific calculators. Make-up exams will be given only if the students contacts the instructor before the exam and has a reasonable (instructors decision as to what constitutes reasonable) excuse for missing the exam.
CELL PHONES MUST BE TURNED OFF DURING EXAMS AND QUIZZES.
Late Submission of Course Materials:
The instructor will not accept assignments late. Assignments not submitted on the due date will receive a grade of “zero”.
Classroom Rules of Conduct:
Shoes(no open toed/heeled shoes) must be worn.
No food or drink allowed.
Show respect for one another and cooperate with each other at all times.
Safety Glasses MUST BE WORN AT ALL TIMES IN LAB.

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. Park University students and faculty members are encouraged to take advantage of the University resources available for learning about academic honesty (www.park.edu/current or http://www.park.edu/faculty/).from Park University 2011-2012 Undergraduate Catalog Page 93
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. from Park University 2011-2012 Undergraduate Catalog Page 93You also need to read the Possible Penalties discussion on page 93 in the catalog (Park University 2009-2010. Undergraduate Catalog). A zero on a major assignment like the Multicultural Paper could result in an F in the course. There are numerous websites that explain how to avoid plagiarism. One that I would suggest is
Attendance Policy:Instructors are required to maintain attendance records and to report absences via the online attendance reporting system.
