Educational Philosophy: I provide each student the maximum number of
resources to learn the material. This enables the student to use a
combination of the various mediums to match his/her personal learning
style. These resources include me as the instructor, the text, lectures,
my personal notes, various internet links, as well as homework
assignments and tests to help guide and evaluate the student’s
efforts. Homework will be assigned and due each week to give the student
an opportunity to practice applying the material. To facilitate the
student’s understanding of the material, I will provide an opportunity
for students to ask questions and review material during each class.
Students are encouraged to bring homework questions to these
sessions. I will also make myself as available as possible via email and
by appointment. A midterm and final exam will be administered to test
the student’s ability to apply the material.
Class Assessment: 7 Homework Assignments
Late Submission of Course Materials: Generally late
submission of any course material must be previously approved by
instructor; however, there will be a two (2) day grace period on all
handwritten homework assignments and a one (1) day grace period on all
handwritten exams. For each day after the grace period ends, a 5 point
penalty will be applied to the assignment.
Assignments are due during class when collected unless otherwise stated.
Classroom Rules of Conduct: Students must always conduct themselves in a
manner that fosters learning. This includes, but is not limited to,
being respectful to the instructors and other students. If you have
difficulties with another student, kindly address that student or bring
the problem to my attention after class. I encourage the students to
use each other as a resource for learning the material. Students may
work on homework assignments together, but I expect that each student
will do his/her own work!
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 93
Attendance Policy:Instructors are required to maintain attendance records and to report absences via the online attendance reporting system.

These guidelines are designed to supply directions to students concerning the information necessary to accomplish this goal. It is Park University's policy to comply fully with federal and state law, including Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 and the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990, regarding students with disabilities.
