This course has been planned as a flipped course for Fall 2020. Direct, lecture-based instruction and course materials will be available online, and when you are in the face-to-face class you will do other activities (such as small group work, problem solving, discussion, etc.). You will be assigned to one physical class day/week and will access course materials virtually on the other days.

 

All students are expected to attend all classes whether it is presented virtually or face-to-face. If a student is not in class, they will not receive attendance or class engagement points for that day. Any course material or assignments are the responsibility of the student to get and turn in on time if they are absent. Students that come in late will not receive the full participation points for that specific day (more than 5 minutes late will be subject to lower participation points for said day).

 

NO LATE WORK WILL BE ACCEPTED UNLESS PREVIOUSLY APPROVED BY INSTRUCTOR!

Note: You may not submit a paper for a grade in this class that already has been (or will be) submitted for a grade in another course, unless you obtain the explicit written permission of me and the other instructor involved in advance.

Plagiarism is the use of someone else's thoughts, words, ideas, or lines of argument in your own work without appropriate documentation (a parenthetical citation at the end and a listing in "Works Cited")-whether you use that material in a quote, paraphrase, or summary. It is a theft of intellectual property and will not be tolerated, whether intentional or not.

Student Honor Creed

As an MSU Student, I pledge not to lie, cheat, steal, or help anyone else do so."

As students at MSU, we recognize that any great society must be composed of empowered, responsible citizens. We also recognize universities play an important role in helping mold these responsible citizens. We believe students themselves play an important part in developing responsible citizenship by maintaining a community where integrity and honorable character are the norm, not the exception.

Thus, We, the Students of Midwestern State University, resolve to uphold the honor of the University by affirming our commitment to complete academic honesty. We resolve not only to be honest but also to hold our peers accountable for complete honesty in all university matters.

We consider it dishonest to ask for, give, or receive help in examinations or quizzes, to use any unauthorized material in examinations, or to present, as one's own, work or ideas which are not entirely one's own. We recognize that any instructor has the right to expect that all student work is honest, original work. We accept and acknowledge that responsibility for lying, cheating, stealing, plagiarism, and other forms of academic dishonesty fundamentally rests within each individual student.

We expect of ourselves academic integrity, personal professionalism, and ethical character. We appreciate steps taken by University officials to protect the honor of the University against any who would disgrace the MSU student body by violating the spirit of this creed.

Written and adopted by the 2002-2003 MSU Student Senate.
