All assignments are due in class on the stated dates. Files sent as e-mail attachments will not be accepted unless I make an exception. I do not accept late submissions. If you submit an assignment late, you get a zero on the assignment.
I will take attendance at the beginning of class once a week. No more than one unexcused absence and two excused absences will be allowed. For excused absences, I will need official written documentation.
1. Texting: No texting in class. If I see you text during class, I will ask you to leave the classroom immediately.
2. Laptops: You may not use laptops or iPads in the classroom unless you get special permission from me. Kindles are fine
3. Being late: You will not make me happy by being late to class, especially if that happens more than once. If you are late repeatedly, it will seriously affect your attendance grade. I will not count you in attendance if you are more than 5 minutes late.
I will not tolerate any form of cheating. Any student caught improperly using online or print sources in an assignment will receive a zero for the assignment in question, and depending on the particular case, may receive a failing grade in the course. As per university rules, I will report plagiarism violations to the Dean of Academy Affairs. For more information, to to the website for Undergraduate Policy on Academic Integrity.
