Connect, as well as the registration of it into this course, is required . Your homework will be completed and submitted via McGraw-Hill’s website. If you have not bought a text/package yet and are not sure if you will remain in this course, you can still register with Connect to do your first assignment by selecting the free trial option. Class Connect web page: If you have any questions regarding Connect please direct these to McGraw-Hill tech support, either by visiting their website at: for helpful FAQ’s, or by calling 1-800- 331-5094. 2. Use of Technology in the Classroom The inappropriate use of electronic devices during class is disrespectful and distracting to those around you. Cell phones should be on silent or turned off, and they should be completely put away during class. Students are allowed to use laptops and tablets during class to access textbook materials and to take notes. However, students who use technology for social media, games, browsing, or other non-class-related purposes will forfeit that privilege for the remainder of the semester in addition to losing points on their professionalism score (discussed below). Programmable calculators and/or cell phone calculators are not allowed to be used during any assessments. If you are unsure if your calculator is allowed, see me prior to the assessment date.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
