Classroom Courtesies I respect you and the learning environment we create together in the classroom. Out of respect for your classmates and for me, I ask that you abide by some basic courtesies that will enhance this environment: • Please to try be on time for class • Please do not engage in private conversations . • Please turn all electronic devices off and do not use them during class. This does not include the computer/tablet that you use for note taking. • Please do not get up and leave before class is over. It is very disruptive to your classmates and to me. • Wait until the end of the class period before packing up to leave and gently lower the tablet arm of your desk. Academic Misconduct and the Student Code of Conduct
CHEM 112 Syllabus Page 6 of 7 As per requirement by UMass Amherst: “Academic dishonesty is prohibited in all programs of the University. Academic dishonesty includes but is not limited to: cheating, fabrication, plagiarism, and facilitating dishonesty. [See Appendix B of the Student Code of Conduct for detailed examples of behavior that constitutes academic dishonesty.] Appropriate sanctions may be imposed on any student who has committed an act of academic dishonesty. Instructors should take reasonable steps to address academic misconduct. Any person who has reason to believe that a student has committed academic dishonesty should bring such information to the attention of the appropriate course instructor as soon as possible. Instances of academic dishonesty not related to a specific course should be brought to the attention of the appropriate department Head or Chair. The procedures outlined below are intended to provide an efficient and orderly process by which action may be taken if it appears that academic dishonesty has occurred and by which students may appeal such actions.” Academic misconduct of any type will not be tolerated and will be dealt with in accordance with the Student Code of Conduct as outlined on the following UMass website: 1. Know Your Rights . Do not let other students in your class diminish the value of your achievement by taking unfair advantage. Report any academic dishonesty you see. 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.
