*Lab Reports
Lab reports consist of answers to assigned questions, sketches and tables for each lab. Your answers should be in complete sentences and sketches and tables as accurate as possible. Each lab will be worth a maximum of 15 points. Be very sure that you read the instructions and directions on how to submit a proper lab report in the Lab Instructions. You must perform all 12 of the labs in order to complete the course. The Lab Syllabus is separate.

*Summary Papers (100-250 words long)
 You will need to write 4 summary papers. You can access a list of internet sources by using the link given on the HOME PAGE titled SUMMARY PAPER INTERNET SOURCES. You are not limited by the lists of links given for the summary papers. You may also use your textbook, periodicals, magazine articles, internet searches, interviews, etc. You may choose more than one reading to include in your summary. You will receive credit for only four summary papers for the course. Each summary paper is worth a maximum of 20 points. Submission of your summary paper will be in class. Be sure that the summary paper is typed. The summary paper must be at least 100 words long and no longer than 250 words (this would be about ¼ to ½ page in length). Be very sure that you indicate your sources for the summary papers. You should maintain a copy of the paper to save for your records.

ACADEMIC DISHONESTY
Academic dishonesty refers to misconduct related to academic assignments or examinations, plagiarizing or other misconduct directly related to the academic learning experience. Plagiarism is the unacknowledged use of another person's work (either word for word or in the substance of an idea) in one's own work offered for credit. Plagiarism, cheating, and possession and/or distribution of un-administered examinations may be handled as a scholastic matter (i.e. failing the assignment and/or the course) or as a disciplinary matter in accordance with the Student Code of Conduct. Academic dishonesty or cheating includes, but is not limited to:

• Copying from another student's test paper and/or collaboration during a test with any other person by giving or receiving information without authority; using materials during a test not authorized by the instructor.
• Stealing, buying, or otherwise obtaining all or part of an un-administered test or information about said test.
• Selling, giving, or otherwise supplying to another student for use in fulfilling an academic requirement, any theme, report, term paper, painting, drawing, sculpture, or other work of art; or submitting as one's own, in fulfillment of an academic requirement, any theme, report, term paper, essay, or other written work, painting, drawing, sculpture, or other work prepared totally or in part by another.
• Submitting nearly identical work that one has previously offered for credit in another course, without prior approval by the instructor.

If a student disagrees with charges of academic dishonesty policy against him/her, they must meet with the instructor and attempt a resolution. If the student and the instructor cannot come to a resolution the student may appeal the decision through the appeal process.

 

SYLLABUS SUBJECT TO CHANGE
I anticipate that we will follow the schedule I have outlined here., but I may make adjustments based on what actually happens during the course. If there are changes, you will be notified by email and/or by a message given on the home page alerting you to the change or changes being made. Remaining in the course after reading this syllabus will signal that you accept the possibility of changes and responsibility for being aware of them.
