Unformatted text preview: Other important notes:
1. Homework policy: Assignments will be posted with due dates at onQ for Stat 268, and you will also
receive an email from crowdmark. Please submit scans of your assignments on crowdmark by the
due date. Late assignments will not be accepted. Solutions to the assignments will be posted on the
same site within one week after the respective due dates.
You may work together on homework, and use online and other resources. However, you should
say on your homework with whom you have worked, and what external resources you have used, and
must write down solutions in your own words. It is a good idea to make a serious attempt at every
problem by yourself before consulting a peer or an outside reference.
2. Mid-term exams: There will be no make-up mid-term tests.
3. Calculator policy: The use of the Casio 991 series calculator will be allowed on exams. (This is the
only approved calculator for Arts and Science students.) This calculator sells for around $ 25 at the
Queen's Campus Bookstore, Staples and other popular suppliers of school and office supplies.
4. Accommodations for students with disabilities: If you are a student with a disability and think you
may need academic accommodations, you are strongly encouraged to contact the Queen's Student
Accessibility Services (QSAS) and register as early as possible. For more information, including
important deadlines, please visit the QSAS website at: . queensu. ca/studentwellness/
5. A Queen's statement on academic integrity: academic integrity is constituted by the six core funda-
mental values of honesty, trust, fairness, respect, responsibility and courage (see ).
These values are central to the building, nurturing and sustaining of an academic community in
which all members of the community will thrive. Adherence to the values expressed through aca-
demic integrity forms a foundation for the "freedom of inquiry and exchange of ideas" essential to
the intellectual life of the University.
Students are responsible for familiarizing themselves with the regulations concerning academic in-
tegrity and for ensuring that their assignments conform to the principles of academic integrity. Infor-
mation on academic integrity is available in the Arts and Science Calendar, on the Arts and Science
website (see . queensu. ca/artsci/academics/undergraduate/academic integrity),
and from the instructor of this course. Departures from academic integrity include plagiarism, use
of unauthorized materials, facilitation, forgery and falsification, and are antithetical to the develop-
ment of an academic community at Queen's. Given the seriousness of these matters, actions which
contravene the regulation on academic integrity carry sanctions that can range from a warning or
the loss of grades on an assignment to the failure of a course to a requirement to withdraw from the
6. A Queen's statement on academic consideration for students with extenuating circumstances: Queen's
University is committed to providing academic consideration to students experiencing extenuating
circumstances that are beyond their control and are interfering with their ability to complete academic
requirements related to a course for a short period of time, not to exceed three months. Students
receiving academic consideration must meet all essential requirements of a course. The Senate Policy
on Academic Consideration for Students in Extenuating Circumstances was approved at Senate in
April, 2017 (see . queensu. ca.uslcwww/
20Circumstances%20Policy%20Final. pdf). Each Faculty has developed a protocol to provide
a consistent and equitable approach in dealing with requests for academic consideration for stu-
lents facing extenuating circumstances. Arts and Science undergraduate students can find the
Faculty of Arts and Science protocol and the portal where a request can be submitted at: http:
//www. queensu. ca/artsci/accommodations. Students in other Faculties and Schools who are en-
rolled in this course should refer to the protocol for their home Faculty.
If you need to request academic consideration for this course, you will be required to provide the
name and email address of the instructor/coordinator. Please use the following:...
