    Expectations:

    Students are expected to report to class prepared to learn.  Learning is both an individual and social process. Respecting others and adhering to all student handbook policies is mandatory.

    All assignments must be completed before grading. Though partial work is acceptable, students ultimately miss the opportunity to receive full credit if they choose to turn assignments in late.
