COURSE REQUIREMENTS: Weekly tests Final test Other work as assigned by the instructor TURN OFF CELL PHONE DURING CLASS OTHER COMPETENCY: All written assignments must be readable and will require competency in written English. Aspects of thinking critically will be assessed in this course in lecture exams and labs. Students will be assessed regarding learning independently. Additionally, examining relationships in diverse and complex environments will be assessed, with examples including each student’s ability to demonstrate awareness and the importance of nationally and internationally standardized reference material.
