Unformatted text preview: Science 155, Physical Science, Fall 2007 Instructor: Dr. Mary Korte Campus office: SH002B Campus phone: 243-4297 Campus email: [email protected] Required texts : The Physical Universe by Krauskopf and Beiser Print your own labs each week from the WebCT site for this class Attendance : Students are expected to attend all lectures and labs, participate in classroom activities and discussions, turn in assignments on time, and demonstrate a professional attitude. Late work will NOT be accepted without penalty (and will not be accepted after the assignment is returned to the class) unless you have a serious and verifiable excuse--for example, medical emergencies or legal obligations such as jury duty. If you have an excused absence due to a CUW activity, your work should be turned in before you leave for your activity. There are NO make-ups for missed labs. You must take all exams and quizzes at the scheduled time. There are no make-ups for missed quizzes or assignments that are given when you are not in class. Note when exams are scheduled and make necessary travel arrangements, including Thanksgiving & Fall Break! A non-refundable airline ticket purchased by you or someone else is NOT an acceptable excuse for missing a scheduled test. ADA : This professor and Concordia affirm federal ADA legislation. Any student who has a documented condition requiring special consideration should contact me by email no later than Monday of the second week of the semester in order to make proper arrangements.

Free academic resources include individual tutoring, the Writing Center, and weekly group study & review sessions. It is expected that students who need extra help will take advantage of these opportunities. Tentative Schedule : PowerPoints to accompany class lectures are available on WebCT....
