Since this course is online, it is important for the student to communicate with the instructor on a weekly basis -
submitting assignments, taking quizzes, or sending email. If I see that a student is not keeping current, I will drop
the student. Keep in touch with the instructor, do not get dropped.

ACADEMIC HONESTY: All work that you submit in this course must be your own, it is a violation of academic
integrity to copy someone else's work or to permit another person to copy your work. At no time is it acceptable
for you to share your solutions to the homework assignments with other students, whether these solutions are
complete or partial. Any similarity in form or notation, the instructor retains the right to give a failing grade for
the assignment, exam, and/or course.
Please familiarize yourself with LPC's policy on academic dishonesty. It can be found, among other places, at Academic dishonesty (cheating and plagiarism) will not
be tolerated. Students found cheating (fraud, deceit, or dishonesty in an academic assignment) and/or plagiarizing
(using another’s work as your own) will receive a zero for the assignment or exam and the incident will be reported
to the dean of student services.
