IV. REQUIREMENTS:

COURSE POLICIES/PROCEDURES:
•The lecture method is used to explain new materials and answer questions on previous
assignments.
•Any remaining class time is used for students to work on assignments in groups and under
close supervision of instructor.
•The student is expected to complete each assignment.
•All cell phones and pagers must be turned off during class.

ATTENDANCE (Arts and Sciences Division):
•The Technical College of the Lowcountry expects that students will attend all scheduled
instructional classes and laboratory periods. Students are expected to be in class on time and
attend a minimum of ninety (90) percent of the total class hours or laboratory periods for each
course in order to receive a passing grade. Students are responsible for making‐up the work
missed during any absence.
•In the event it becomes necessary for you to with draw from the course OR if you stop
attending class, it is your responsibility to initiate and complete the necessary
paperwork.
Failure to complete and file the necessary paperwork with the Student
Records Office may result in a grade of “F” for the course.
•During the fall/spring regular terms, when a student is absent from class four or more
times for classes meeting twice weekly (two or more times for classes meeting once
weekly), OR for fall/spring/summer eight‐week classes, when a student is absent from class two or
more times for classes meeting twice weekly (one class for classes meeting once weekly),
then
•the student is in violation of the attendance policy. The instructor MAY
  o drop the student from the class with a grade of "W" if the student is making satisfactory progress, or
  o drop the student from the class with a grade of "WF" if the student is making unsatisfactory progress or
  o under extenuating circumstances, and at the discretion of the faculty member teaching
the class, allow the student to continue in the class and make‐up the work.
•Absences are counted from the first day of class. There are no "excused" absences; all
absences are counted, regardless of the reason for the absence.
•Students are expected to be in class on time. Arrival to class after the scheduled start time or
leaving class prior to dismissal counts as a tardy. Three tardies and/or early departures are
considered as one absence.
•It is the student's responsibility to sign the roll/verify attendance with instructor upon
entering the classroom. Failure to sign the roll/verify attendance results in a recorded
absence. In the event you are tardy, it is your responsibility to insure that you are marked
present. You are responsible for all material/ announcements presented, whether you are
present or absent.
•A signed copy of TCL’s STATEMENT OF POLICY NUMBER: 3‐1‐307 CLASS ATTENDANCE
(WITHDRAWAL) is on file in the Division Office and in the Learning Resources Center.

COMMUNICATION:
Instructors will generally respond to voice mail messages and e‐mail messages within three
college class days. If there is a problem, the student should remember that a face‐to‐face meeting
with the instructor is best. Student should contact instructor to make an appointment.

STUDENTS:
 •Contact information for on‐line instructors is listed at VII Class Information on the course syllabus.
 •The student is responsible for making sure that the instructor and the College has his/her
current contact information, including telephone number(s) and e‐mail address.

Voice Messages:

number are listed at VII Class Information on the course syllabus.
 When leaving a voice mail message for the instructor, the student should speak slowly and
clearly. He/she should leave accurate information including accurate telephone number(s)
where you may be reached. It is helpful to repeat the telephone number at the very end of
the voice message.
•The Division Administrative Assistant is available on class days from 8:00‐4:30 pm. A
message left with the Administrative Assistant will be received by the instructor when
he/she checks the mailbox. The most efficient way to get a voice mail message to an

adjunct instructor's mailbox and forwarded to the adjunct instructor.

V. ACADEMIC HONESTY POLICY (Arts and Sciences Division):

Academic dishonesty at TCL will not be tolerated. The College expects all students to conduct
themselves with dignity and to maintain high standards of responsible citizenship. If determined
by the instructor that cheating or any other academic dishonesty in any part (project, paper, quiz,
test, exam, assignment, etc.) of the course has occurred, the student(s) will normally receive a
grade of 0 for that part of the course and may be subject to further disciplinary action. A
subsequent incidence of academic dishonesty may result in a grade of “F” for the course and/or
other disciplinary actions.

The College adheres to the Student Code for the South Carolina Technical College System. Copies
of the Student Code and Grievance Procedure are provided in the TCL Student Handbook, the
Division Office, and the Learning Resources Center.

VI. COURSE STANDARDS, EVALUATION METHODS/CRITERIA, GRADING POLICY:

•Your final grade for the course will be obtained from the average of your homework, unit
tests, and final examination.
•Tests will be administered at the end of each chapter. It is the student’s responsibility in the
case of an absence to contact the instructor for assignments and arrangements for a makeup
test.
•The grade scale is as follows:

90 – 100 = A
80 – 89 = B
70 – 79 = C
60 – 69 = D
Below 60 = F

VII.

EXPECTATATIONS FOR STUDENT FOR FULFILLMENT OF COURSE REQUIREMENTS:

•Use of the Texas Instrument 83/84/89 calculator to find solutions will be taught and I will
use the TI‐89 for instruction purposes.
•Your final grade will be obtained from the average of graded homework assignments, tests,
and a cumulative final exam.
  •20% is homework
  •50% is the test average
  •35% is the final exam
The attendance policy is as per college policy. For my classes I do not drop any student that
has attended at least one class . You are responsible to start the ADD/DROP paperwork or I
will carry you through until the end of the semester. It is your responsibility to call to let me
know if there is a problem that we can work through, otherwise you will receive the grade as
calculated by your submitted work.
My office hours – I have office hours at the tutoring center in building 12, room 215. My
hours there are M & W 11:002:
00.
Grading policy – we will be covering chapters 1 – 8. You will have 4 chapter tests and a
cumulative final exam.
Homework will be collected, graded and returned to you. For your effort, the lowest grade for
homework, when you do more than half of the assignment, is a 70; less than half 50; not in by
the deadline, 0. All of the homework for a chapter is due on or before the chapter test
date.
You have the option of doing your homework online instead of through the book using
coursecompass and the course id is daniels47845.
Tests – I grant you a minimum grade of 50 on chapter tests. No dropping of the low test grade.
I ask you not to refer to your books while taking tests but you are allowed to use your notes
and calculator.
Final Exam – The final exam is the only test that is graded as is.
