Due: December 6, 2013 (week 16)

Classroom attendance, preparation and participation is
necessary to accomplish the objectives of this course. I use
a “Responsible Adult Attendance” policy:


Stay home when you are ill. Do not attend classes if
you are sneezing, coughing or contagious. If you must
miss class due to illness, you will be required to
complete homework, quizzes, and assignments in a
timely manner to the extent that is reasonable. Contact
Professor Carroll by email prior to the beginning of the
class period to obtain an excused absence.


Personal Emergency:

Contact Professor Carroll by e
-
mail or phone, at your earliest opportunity, to explain
that you need to miss a quiz or exam


During the last two weeks of the semester, you will be
asked to evaluate this course and instructor
(Dr.
Carroll) using
an online course evaluation.


You
will receive an official email from evaluation
administrators with a link to the online evaluation site
on Monday of the fifteenth week of classes.



You
will have two weeks to complete this evaluation.


Your
participation in this evaluation is an integral part
of this course.


Your
feedback is vital to improving education at
Purdue University.


Please
participate in the evaluation system and give
your honest feedback.


The policy of Purdue University is:



The commitment of the acts of cheating, lying,
stealing, and deceit in any of their diverse
forms (such as the use of ghostwritten papers,
the use of substitutes for taking examinations,
the use of illegal cribs, plagiarism, and copying
during examinations) is dishonest and must
not be tolerated.”


Moreover
, knowingly aiding and abetting,
directly or indirectly, others in committing
dishonest acts is, in itself, dishonest.”


Integrity is an important attribute in the success of
Purdue graduates.


Cheating
on homework, quizzes, exams, and term
projects will result in failure of the course.


This
does not mean that students are prohibited from
studying together, working together, or from
discussing or assisting each other to on homework
problems. In fact, this is encouraged.


However
, the bottom line is that I expect and will
require you to be responsible for learning the material
covered.


Plagiarism
and/or cheating is sufficient
grounds for
an
F. (See the student handbook for University rules for
more information.)


All students are expected to act in an honest and
ethical manner consistent with Purdue University
regulations.


It
is your responsibility to read "Academic Integrity: A
Guide for Students"
http://www.purdue.edu/odos/osrr/academicintegrit
y.php
.


The
consequences for acts of academic dishonesty will
range from punitive grade reduction to course failure.
Specifically, students should understand the definition
of plagiarism.


The
information on plagiarism at the following link is
required reading,
http://gervaseprograms.georgetown.edu/honor/syste
m/53377.html


If
the fire alarm is activated as a result of a fire
or explosion, the building must be evacuated
immediately.


Proceed
to the nearest stairway, then to the
nearest building exit doors and finally to the
Emergency Assembly Area which is located on
the Agricultural Mall directly in the front
(north side) of the Food Science Building.


Building
occupants are required
by law

to
evacuate the building when the fire alarm
sounds.


In
the event of a tornado or the sounding of the
county tornado sirens, all ABE occupants
should proceed to room 106A or 106B (main
floor south of the hallway where the soft
-
drink
machines are located).


This
procedure may also be necessary if there
are other emergencies that make it unsafe to be
outside, such as release of a harmful or
irritating gas outside of the building.



In the event of a major campus emergency,
course requirements, deadlines and grading
percentages are subject to changes that may be
necessitated by a revised semester calendar or
other circumstances.


Information
about changes will be available on
the Course website and Blackboard and
through E
-
mail notices.


Everyone should be familiar with their rights and responsibilities
as members of the Purdue University community,

and

Three ‘children,’


Introduce yourself


Where you are from


Something you want to share

Note:


This
course is not difficult and generally people do
quite well
if they do the
work


The
C’s & D’s that I get are from those who skip
class, miss quizzes, and/or
those who don’t do the
homework or
always turn
it in late
.


If you are having trouble, come and see me…
