|It is understood that you will complete the study of assigned
material before coming to class. You must have a copy of
the text and you will be expected to bring it to class each class
meeting. You will be constantly engaged and involved in
discussions relating to the subject matter. Therefore you are expected
to participate fully in class discussions by both asking and answering
questions. It is the individual student's responsibility to
prepare and ask questions on all matters pertaining to the course
which he or she does not fully understand.
The subject matter requires much reading. Every participant
should develop his/her style of reading and taking notes in order to
be able to digest the material. Assignments assume a minimum of
6-9 hours of preparation per week.
Do not make the mistake of falling behind in your reading
assignments. Complete each assignment as it falls due and you will
not be faced with an impossible task prior to the examination.
Many of your class sessions will be devoted to the lectures on
the assigned and related materials. Since a great deal of subject
matter, which is not in the text, will be introduced in lectures and
class discussion, it is strongly advised that you keep well
If you miss a class session, you will be expected to make up the
material missed. If you need help along these lines, you are urged
to see the instructor. It should be understood that absence from a
prior class is not acceptable as an excuse for lack of preparation
in a subsequent class.
Each student is expected to keep a record of his or her own
grades and absences.
||This course is intensive and demanding, therefore full class
attendance is strongly encouraged. Class attendance is expected
and will be taken. A student who is not present when roll is taken
will be marked absent. If a student is absent more than six class
sessions, a withdrawal notice will be initiated by the instructor.
Students who leave early (before a class is finished) will be marked
absent for the entire class session. Lectures are designed with
the goal of making the subject matter easier to understand. You
will miss the required instructions if you are absent. You must know the date for the last day of withdrawal without instructor's signature.
NO withdrawal with a "W" "Withdraw Passing" will be given to any student after this date.
||Make-up exams will be given only at the discretion of the
instructor. The student should recognize that this is a
privilege and not a right. Students who take a make-up exam will
suffer a one letter grade reduction (10 points) in the exam score.
||Students who have difficulty with this class are encouraged to
talk to the instructor about getting additional help. Tutoring is
available at the Learning Support Center (LSC). The LSC also has
information on study skills and test taking skills. |
||The activities are essential part of your final grade. They consist
of quizzes, class participation, solving end-of-chapter problems,
and presentation of outside articles and current business events.
