SC 130 Physical Science lecture syllabus
Course pace: The course has video presentations in lieu of lecture class on Mondays, Tuesday, Wednesdays, and Thursdays. Lecture videos for a given day precede the laboratory and should be watched ahead of the 11:00 laboratory class. Tests are on Fridays or the last day of the week. Tests are online.
Submissions policy: Laboratory reports are due one week after the laboratory. Laboratory reports cannot be submitted more than two weeks after the laboratory.
Participation policy: Course participation will be measured by attending the laboratory classes, submitting laboratory reports, and submitting the weekly tests each week.
Communication policy: I can be contacted through the messaging capability in Canvas or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org. You can also contact me through these channels to request to set up a Zoom meeting with me. Phones: 320-2480 extension 161 | Cell: 921-7961
