NOTES:



  1. PRACTICAL EXAMS: Evening Exams (A-K 5:30, L-Z 6:30). Lab will be closed at 8am in the morning on the day of the evening lab exam.




  1. Special Sessions. Students missing assigned course material due to holidays (M.L. King, Presidents, etc.), acts of God (floods, fires, snow), or acts of humans (e.g. bomb threats) are held responsible for such missed material, and are expected to make it up as soon as is practicable, usually the next Friday or Saturday in special session.




  1. Be Prepared. I expect you to be at your best and work at your best all the time.




  1. Courtesy. I expect that you will respect and show courtesies toward all members of the course. This includes arriving in lecture and laboratory on time, and without disruption of the class. All cell phones will be turned off during scheduled lectures and laboratories. If you arrive late or depart early from lecture, then plan to find a seat quietly and conveniently near the back of the room where your movements will not disrupt colleagues.




  1. Special Accommodations. For physical, mental, or religious reasons special accommodation may be requested by a student. Reasonable efforts are made to accommodate these requests, but in some cases this may not be feasible because of the academic expectations of the course, time-intensive nature of preparing laboratory exams, and the necessity of being fair to all other members of the course. Therefore, if you expect to receive an accommodation for any reason, this request must be made directly to me, the instructor, during the first week of the semester.




  1. Bomb Threats and Building Closures. Occasionally, anonymous bomb threats or building maintenance require the University to suddenly close a building where an exam is scheduled. In such cases, you should meet outside the main building entrance, where we will decide on an alternative, safe place to continue with the exam. In no instance will the scheduled exam be canceled or delayed. Therefore you are responsible for meeting with the class outside the building and continuing to the alternative exam site that will be announced.




  1. Unethical Conduct. Cheating on an exam or a laboratory assignment will result in a final grade of F for the entire course, will be reported to the appropriate University office, and may result in additional disciplinary action by the University.




  1. Corrections to this Schedule. Corrections of clerical mistakes to this schedule will be immediately binding.
