TEXT: Cunningham, Environmental Science


General Course Expectations

  • Please, no weapons of mass distraction. No reading papers, chatting, cell phones, pagers, etc.
  • Class ends at 9:15 unless dismissed earlier. Please do not start packing before then.
  • You are responsible for being aware of any changes in class schedule or content.
  • If you elect not to attend lecture, you must make arrangements for finding out about changes.
  • You are responsible for checking your campus e-mail account for messages. Your account can be accessed from anywhere via the campus home page. I will not send messages to private accounts.
  • A credit is defined as three hours of work per week. Count on spending two hours outside of class to assimilate an hour's worth of lecture properly. Cramming just does not work. You're better off getting a good night's sleep before class.
  • You are responsible for reading, learning and remembering the material on this syllabus. You are responsible for keeping all course materials and records until your final grades are in.
