Participación en clase: Students are expected to attend and participate in class activities.  Students should arrive on time and do not depart early or “come and go”.  They should be attentive, participate voluntarily and frequently, stay on task during group work, and ask appropriate, pertinent questions. Negative behaviors that have a general disruptive effect on the class will very negatively affect the class participation grade.  A  grade will be given daily between 0 and 4 points for class participation.


Academic Integrity: You and the instructor will follow both the spirit and letter of the NCSU Code of Student Conduct. You will have the opportunity to attest to this in writing upon several occasions. Although you must complete and turn in your own work, you are encouraged to work with others in completing and preparing the course assignments (quizzes and tests being the principal exceptions). However, the copying or sharing of answers, from another student or from an answer key, etc., is not WORKING together and is in violation of the honor code.


Students with Disabilities: Students with diagnosed disabilities schedule an appointment with the professor at the beginning of the semester to discuss academic accommodations. This student/professor meeting occurs after the professor receives official documentation from the DSS office. Students without official documentation need to register in Suite 1900, Student Health Center. (See current NC State Policy, DSO site, or call 5-7653, voice; 5-8830, try.). Students with particular learning styles/needs should inform the instructor at the beginning of the course.
