Academic Honesty: All work in this course (except the team project) must represent the individual effort of the student. You may study together and help each other understand the topics of the course, but you may not help each other with written or computer assignments, and, of course, your effort on examinations must be entirely your own. You may not discuss any written or computer assignment with another student or show it to another student. You may not ask another student how he or she did an assignment or look at another student's assignment. Except for the team project, you may not work with other students on assignments. (After you have turned in an assignment, you may discuss your assignment with other students who have also turned in the assignment, but not with students who have not yet turned in the assignment.) Any copied or cooperative assignments will result in zero credit for all students involved. Cooperation between students on assignments may also be referred to the University's Student Discipline Officer for appropriate action. Any cheating on exams will result in all students involved receiving 0 points on the exam and a report on all students involved will be made to the Student Discipline Officer. See the section on "Student Conduct/Discipline" in the SFSU Bulletin for details of the consequences of inappropriate conduct by students. Class Rules Turn off cell phones before entering class. Electronic devices such as mobile phones, laptop computers, and MP3 players may not be used in class except for activities related to the course or in case of emergency. You may not send text messages, talk on your mobile phone, check your email, surf the web for topics not related to the course, listen to music or podcasts, and similar activities, during class. You may only use these devices if their use is directly related to the class, such as viewing course materials or searching the web for something related to the course that you wish to discuss in class. Use of recorders (audio and/or video) is allowed with instructor permission.
No eating or drinking in class, and please return chairs, throw away your trash, etc. Everyone is to behave in a professional manner while online and while interacting with the instructor or other students (no rude or insulting behavior, please). SFSU Policy on Observance of Religious Holidays The faculty of San Francisco State University shall accommodate students wishing to observe religious holidays when such observances require students to be absent from class activities. It is the responsibility of the student to inform the instructor, in writing, about such holidays during the first two weeks of the class each semester. If such holidays occur during the first two weeks of the semester, the student must notify the instructor, in writing, at least three days before the date that he/she will be absent. It is the responsibility of the instructor to make every reasonable effort to honor the student request without penalty, and of the student to make up the work missed.
