Description of instructional time and expectations:This course meets 3 times per week for 3 hours per week. The course carries 1.0 course credit (equivalent to four semester credit hours). Students are expected to devote a minimum of 12 hours of total work per week (in-class time plus out-of-class work) to this course.
Academic HonestyPlease read the College's information on Academic Honesty. If a student cheats in an exam, quiz or homework assignment, I will proceed with charging the student with the Academic Honesty Judicial Board. The usual (first) penalty is a 0 in the assignment on which the cheating occured plus some ethics lectures the student would take. The second penalty is usually suspension. The code you write for exams and homework should be your own. Failure to write your own code will be considered academic dishonesty.
COVID-19 PrecautionsIt is recommended to have a plan on how to get notes in case you need to be quarantined.
