Where appropriate a make up test will be arranged. 5. such as an ipod. The only exceptions to this rule are devices used by students with accommodations for special needs identified by the Accessible Learning Services. the possession of electronic devices capable of communicating with other devices. If a student is found with such a device during a test or examination depending on the circumstances one of two courses of action will be followed: a) The device will be removed by the invigilator and collected by the student when they submit the paper and leave the room or b) The possession of the device may be considered to represent an academic offence and the matter will be dealt with under the terms of the College’s Academic Honesty Policy. 2. This means that no student is allowed to bring to their desk during any test or examination any lap top computer. The professors reserve the right to specify the types of hand held calculators used during any test or examination. either audio or visual or both. Students must complete every test and laboratory report as an individual effort unless the professor specifies otherwise. is forbidden. Successful completion of this supplemental examination will result in a maximum final grade of “D” for the course. 7. is expressly forbidden.00 charge will be required to write the test. exams and labs. etc. 6.The following practices apply to this course: 1. Students are expected to plan ahead to ensure they are available for all tests. The only acceptable excuse for a missed test or exam or lab is a medical or legal certificate indicating the student’s inability to attend. mp3 player. The make-up test will be written in the Assessment Centre. Blackberry. pda or similar device. During any test or examination. located either inside or outside the test or examination room. If a student is found with such a device during a test or examination depending on the circumstances one of two courses of action will be followed: a) The device will be removed by the invigilator and collected by the student when they submit the paper and leave the room or b) The possession of the device may be considered to represent an academic offence and the matter will be dealt with under the terms of the College’s Academic Honesty Policy. cell phone. The exception to this late penalty is a medical/legal note as described in 3) above. Students must write all tests at the scheduled time in their laboratory section. Late submission of any laboratory report or any assignment will be deducted at 20% of the full value of the work for each school day that the work is late. The only exceptions to this rule are devices used by students with accommodations for special needs identified by the Accessible Learning Services. a mark of zero (0) shall be awarded regardless of any medical or legal certificate that is subsequently provided. the possession of any device that plays recorded material in any format. During any test or examination. Students with a total final grade for this course that falls within the range of 45% to 49% may be awarded a “Supplemental (SU)” examination privilege at the discretion of the professor. 4. 9. Such specification shall be given in class sufficiently in advance . a $10. 8. 3. If the professor is not contacted within three school days of the date of any missed test or work.

Failure to wear safety glasses. If a student is found with a calculator with forbidden capabilities during a test or examination depending on the circumstances one of two courses of action will be followed: a) The device will be removed by the invigilator and collected by the student when they submit the paper and leave the room or b) The possession of the device may be considered to represent an academic offence and the matter will be dealt with under the terms of the College’s Academic Honesty Policy. Safety 3) regulations and procedures are given in this laboratory manual and students will be given a laboratory safety test before starting their first lab experiment. For all laboratory work. pencils. During the test there will be no talking. If a student has a question regarding the test. This schedule must be adhered to rigidly and no exceptions will be allowed. If a student arrives later than 5 minutes after the lab has started. the report for a different experiment than that identified in the schedule) a grade of zero will be given to the student submitting the report. . There are no opportunities for “making up” missed laboratories. The only exceptions to this rule are devices used by students with accommodations for special needs identified by the Accessible Learning Services. it is their responsibility to catch up on their own and to get any missed notes etc from classmates. 12. During the test there will be no sharing of materials. 5) If a student submits a lab report out of turn (i. this includes but is not limited to calculators. a lab coat and full toe shoes may result in a grade of zero for the lab or students may be asked to leave the lab. Students will be assigned as “A” or “B” partners and should submit laboratory reports according to the schedule. that student must raise their hand. 6) If a student misses a lab that they are not responsible for writing. If a student is unsure if their calculator will be permitted. Laboratory groups will be formed in the first week of classes and the group lists will be posted outside B228.of the test or examination to enable all students to comply. for example. Students are expected to follow all laboratory safety rules specified by the professor and as indicated in the laboratory manual. a subsequent submission of a report by the “correct” student in a pair may be subject to a late penalty depending on its time of submission. Attendance at all labs is mandatory. The professor may announce that for a particular test calculators with some specified capability. If a student misses a lecture class. 4) Students will work in pairs on laboratory experiments. 20% will be deducted from the next lab submitted.e. erasers. he or she will be asked to leave the lab and a grade of zero will be given for the missed lab 1) A schedule of laboratory experiments and activities is included in this class plan. it is their responsibility to check in advance with the professor. 10. rulers etc. In this case. 2) A laboratory manual is available for students to purchase as soon as possible. It is critical therefore that all students be on time for laboratory work. such as graphing. pens. are not permitted. (bring your own) 11. the following procedures and expectations apply: It is important for all students to attend and listen to the pre-lab safety talk.

camcorder or camera) is prohibited in the classroom without the instructor’s consent. 8) The use of a recording device (including a voice recorder. respect the learning of others. print the required PowerPoint presentation from SLATE. 7) Before coming to lecture. they are expected to enter the class quietly and find a seat quietly. Do not disrupt the lecture. 3) If a student arrives late to their lecture.7) Typed laboratory reports are due one week after completion of the experiment (at the beginning of the lab period in the following week). 6) It is expected that students turn off their cell phones and do not answer phone calls during lecture. it is your responsibility to clarify this with the professor. 4) There will be no irrelevant talking during lecture. 2) If a student has an IEP (Individual Education Plan) profile or a disability. For all lecture sections the following expectations apply: 1) It is important that all students attend their designated lecture section. 8) If you are unsure about whether a report or assignment is to be done individually or collaboratively. it is the student’s responsibility to register with the Accessible Learning Center and inform their instructor (both lab and lecture) of their accommodations. . after which the student will be asked to leave the lecture. A warning will be given to students who do not follow this expectation. 5) Computers are not necessary in this course therefore. they will not be used during lecture.
