⭕ is a quiz in Canvas
Course pace: The course has new material with homework on the schedule shown in the calendar. You will need to engage with the course on a regular and substantive basis.
Submissions policy: Homework is due by the start of the next class day. Late homework can be submitted for up to a week after the due date. After a week, the homework locks, cannot be submitted, and will have a negative impact on your grade.
Participation policy: The homework occurs in Google Sheets. Google Sheets supports interactive commenting. This will be one of the principal means by which we interact as I provide guidance on how to correct errors made in the homework. Participation will also be tracked via analytics available in Schoology.
Communication policy: I can be contacted through the messaging capability in Schoology or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org. You can also contact me through these channels to request to set up a Schoology conferences or Zoom meeting with me. I do make every effort to respond to messages within 24 hours. Additional contact information: Cell: 921-7961
Calendar structure: The calendar is driven by the logic of where college campuses are closed. When the national campus is closed, the residential section cannot meet, all students in the course get that holiday. Note that the approval of distance education courses was contingent on them being offered under the aegis of the national campus, hence the use of the national campus calendar. Where other state campuses are closed for state holidays , students may have computer or Internet access issues at that campus. For these students the assignment is shifted to by a day forward or backward as appropriate.
Points are earned for correct answers on homework, tests, and presentations.
You have do consistently well across all material to succeed in this course.
Grading is based on the standard college policy: Obtain 90% of the points or more to
obtain an A, 80% to 89% for a B, and so forth.
Academic integrity policy: This course operates on an honor system: your honor. Your trustworthiness. Unless working on a group assignment, do your own work. Submit only your own work. Do the right thing. Always.
