2. Acknowledge Your Sources . Whenever you use words or ideas that are not your own when writing a paper, use quotation marks where appropriate and cite your source in a footnote, and back it up at the end with a list of sources consulted. See on plagiarism . 3. Protect Your Work. In examinations, do not allow your neighbors to see what you have written; you are the only one who should receive credit for what you know. 4. Avoid Suspicion. Do not put yourself in a position where you can be suspected of having copied another person's work, or of having used unauthorized notes in an examination. Even the appearance of dishonesty may undermine your instructor's confidence in your work. 5. Do your own work . The purpose of assignments is to develop your skills and measure your progress. Letting someone else do your work defeats the purpose of your education, and may lead to serious charges against you.

CHEM 111 Syllabus Page 7 of 7 6. Never falsify a record or permit another person to do so. Academic records are regularly audited and students whose grades have been altered put their entire transcript at risk. 7. Never fabricate data, citations, or experimental results. Many professional careers have ended in disgrace, even years after the fabrication first took place. 8. Always tell the truth when discussing your work with your instructor. Any attempt to deceive may destroy the relation of teacher and student. Source: Disabilities and Accommodation Policy The University of Massachusetts Amherst is dedicated to providing equal opportunity/accommodations and access for every student. If you would like to request such accommodations because of a physical, mental, or learning disability, please contact the Office of Disability Services, DS, (161 Whitmore Administration Building). Students registered with the Disability Services should email the instructor by the end of the first week and explain the specific accommodations needed for this class, and should also contact the DS office at least three weeks prior to any exam to make arrangements to take the exam in the DS office. Exams taken with the Disability Services should be scheduled on the same exam days as the rest of the class. Emergency Closings In the event of severe weather or other emergencies which could force the university to cancel classes, such information will be broadcast over various radio and television stations. Students who reside in areas which fall under a Level III emergency should not attempt to drive to the university even if the campus itself remains open. Assignments due on a day the university is closed will be due the next scheduled class period. If an examination is scheduled for a day the campus is closed, the examination will be given on the next class day. Students who miss a class because of weather-related problems when the class is held as scheduled are responsible for reading and other assignments as indicated in the syllabus. If an examination is missed, contact me as soon as possible to determine how to make up the missed exam. Remember! It is the student’s responsibility to keep up with reading and other assignments when a scheduled class does not meet regardless of the reason.
