Students are expected to attend all classes. Missed work may not be made up.

In general, your grade will be determined by the method outlined in the syllabus (i.e. a mid-term and a final). However, in all situations, your interest, attitude, classroom contributions, enthusiasm, etc., will be considered before assigning a final grade.

The student has a fundamental responsibility in the evaluation of this course and the instructor. This responsibility includes but is not limited to completion of a “Teaching and Course Observation” form and the right to submit positive and/or negative comments to the chair of the Education Department.

Students are expected to competently analyze, synthesize, organize, and articulate course material in papers, examinations, and presentations. In addition, students should employ standard conventions of English usage in both writing and speaking. Students having difficulty meeting writing standards are encouraged to visit the college writing center. Students are encouraged to use word processors.

When it is believed that a student has committed an act of academic dishonesty, the instructor will notify the student and the Dean of Academic Affairs, and the student will receive a grade of “0" in the course. In addition, I will forward a copy of the report to the Chair of the Education Department with a request that the student(s) be dropped from the education program.

Students who wish may use calculators during class and in testing situations. Test will not be designed for calculator use so that students without calculators will not be penalized.

- Students will have read the sections to be covered for that day. You should be prepared to ask questions concerning the information and examples in the texts.

- The instructor will cover the material in the assigned section on the overhead screen or in a PowerPoint presentation. He will give examples and solve problems. The student is responsible for asking for clarification or additional practice.

- Homework will be assigned.
