 Excellence is an art won by training and habituation. We do not act rightly because we have virtue or excellence, but we
 rather have those because we have acted rightly. We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act but a habit.

  Policy on Plagiarism
  The work that you turn in must be your own work. It is okay to discuss assignments and techniques with each other, but the work must be
  yours. If there is any plagiarism, you and the person that supplied the work will both receive a grade of zero (0). Copying of work will not
  be tolerated! You are training for a professional career. Using someone else's work will not benefit your progress.


  Lateness and Absenteeism Policies
  You are expected to arrive on time for class and stay until the end of class. There will always be an opening activity when you come to
  class. It is designed to warm you up so you’re ready to learn. This can be a problem based on the homework, previously studied material,
  or to get you thinking about what will be covered in class. This activity may also be reviewing the answers on the homework. Your home-
  work will be recorded during this time. In your best interest, arrive to class on time so you don’t miss out on this valuable time because
  the opening activity is used to catapult us into the new material.

  Being either late or absent for class will affect your success in the course for several reasons. First and foremost, you will miss important
  information and activities that you will need in your future career and in order to successfully complete assignments and tests. And sec-
  ondly, every three unexcused absences will cause your professionalism grade to be reduced by 10 points (one letter grade); furthermore,
  five lateness's count as an absence.

  If you miss class, it is your responsibility to obtain a copy of any notes or handouts from your fellow classmates. Any handouts that were
  given out will be stored in the slots designated for your class. Some of the handouts will appear on the classes website at
  http://www.engrade.com/pboyle. All lab work must be completed on your own time. Instructor reserves the right to limit make-ups for
  assignments.
