Educational Philosophy: MY PHILOSOPHY IS SIMPLE. STUDY THE ASSIGNMENTS, COME TO CLASS PREPARED TO PARTICIPATE IN THE LEARNING EXPERIENCE BY ASKING AND ANSWERING QUESTIONS IN CLASS. NO ONE IS EXCUSED FROM ANY CLASS. IF YOU HAVE AN EMERGENCY, YOU ARE NOT EXCUSED
FROM THE DISCUSSIONS THAT YOU MISSED. OFTEN SCHEDULES CHANGE, EXAMINATIONS ARE MOVED UP AND OTHER IMPORTANT CHANGES HAPPEN. YOU WILL BE ABLE TO MAKE UP ANY QUIZ OR HOMEWORK ASSIGNMENT YOU MISSED, BUT YOU WILL NOT BE UP TO SPEED UNLESS YOU DISCUSS THE MISSED CLASS WITH AN ATTENDING STUDENT.
Learning Outcomes: Core Learning Outcomes

This exam is worth at least 30 percent of the student's final grade and will test students' mastery of the Core Learning Outcomes (as listed on this syllabus) through definitions, essay, and/or multiple choice questions.
