Final exam is scheduled to be on Wednesday, May 16, 1:30 - 4:00 PM

Course Policies:

Homework problems have a due date.

Collaborations between students are encouraged.

With the exception of the final exam, missed course material will be excused if a valid, documented excuse is presented by the student. The homework part of the grade will be determined by the average score on un-excused assignments. The total hour exam grade will be determined by an average of the un-excused hour exams and/or make-up exams (at the option of the instructor). A make-up final exam will be offered to eligible students.

The staff of Services for Students with Disabilities (SSD), 135 Strong, 785-864-2620 (v/tty), coordinates accommodations and services for KU courses. If you have a disability for which you may request accommodation in KU classes and have not contacted them, please do as soon as possible. Please also see me privately in regard to this course. The SSD website is http://www.ku.edu/~ssdis/

The issue of digital plagiarism has raised concerns about ethics, student writing experiences, and academic integrity. KU subscribes to a digital plagiarism detection program called Turnitin.com, which may be used to check papers submitted in this course. You may be asked to submit your papers in a digital format (e-mail attachment, BlackBoard digital drop box or on disk) so that your paper can be checked against web pages and databases of existing papers. Although you may never have engaged in intentional plagiarism, many students do incorporate sources without citations; this program can alert me to your academic needs. Please consider the use of the program as a learning tool for all of us.
