As this class only meets once per week, your attendance is expected. Most days will include some activity with associated worksheets. The worksheets and homework lab narratives must be turned in to receive credit. If you are absent, the in-class work and quiz for the day you miss may be made-up. The only way for you to get the 14 presence points is by being in class.

Lab Narratives Each homework lab requires written observations which are called the Lab Narrative. These observations should be written on the back of the worksheet corresponding to the lab (the worksheet from the class previous to the lab assignment). If you missed the class you can get a copy of the worksheet from Blackboard. You may work on the labs with other class members and discuss the results. However, your lab narrative should be in your own words. If two students submit identical narrative reports, BOTH WILL FAIL THE COURSE. The complete plagiarism policy is found at:
