POLICIES: 1. Class attendance is strongly encouraged. You should attend the class at the scheduled time . Late arrivals or early departures are discouraged and because we will be asking question throughout the lectures, they could be reflected in your class grade. This policy avoids the problem of having people wander in and out in the middle of the class and disturb the lecture. 2. I fully appreciate that job interviews will occasionally conflict with class periods, but your efforts to minimize this conflict are greatly appreciated. 3. Bring a calculator to every class session. It will be useful when we do live exercises in class. 4. We will try to stick to the course outline schedule; however, it may be necessary to sometimes make adjustments. 5. Please remember to turn off your cell phones, both during regular classes and during exams. 6. I do not schedule make ‐ up exams. If you miss a mid ‐ term exam, the grade portion of that exam will be cumulated to the grade portion of your final exam (for example, if you miss one mid ‐ term exam, your final exam will be worth 31.25% of your grade instead of 25%). Make ‐ up final exams will be given only for family or medical emergencies. There is no guarantee that the make ‐ up final will have the same difficulty and the same type of questions as the common exam. VIDEO : Portions of this course may be subject to electronic proctoring. Video cameras may be used to monitor the room during student assessment activities, including but not limited to, exams, tests, and quizzes. Video recordings may be used to investigate or support disciplinary action. All access to and use of video equipment and recordings will follow applicable IU policies. ACADEMIC HONESTY AND DISCIPLINE : Students are expected to adhere to the Student Honor Code. This class has zero tolerance for academic misconduct. The attempt of any student to present the work of another as his or her own, or to present any work not honestly performed, or to pass any examination by improper means is a most serious offense and will be treated with extreme prejudice. The aiding and abetting of a student in any dishonesty is likewise held to be a great breach of discipline. In addition, activities not related to the class, such as cell phone conversations, chatting, internet ‐ surfing, tweeting, facebooking, blogging, etc., are strictly prohibited.
6 COURSE OUTLINE The class schedule is tentative. I will make every effort to maintain the class schedule that follows. However, it may be necessary to make adjustments as the class proceeds.
