Include the assigned material from the text, and Lab/Map Manuals,
class notes, and Exercises.
Laboratory work: Students are expected to spend
the lab time completing the assignments in the classroom.
Research Paper: Each student must choose a topic
from the attached list or pick another relevant topic by
the end of the 3rd week. See the deadline for the paper
Exams/Field trips: Do not miss the scheduled exams/trips
unless you have a doctor's or official university excuse which proves
an emergency case. In such a case, you must contact me within one
day after missing the exam for setting a date for a make-up exam
(to be given within 3 days). There is no make-up for a missed make-up
B - Final Exam:
A zero will be assigned for missing the final exam or any field
trip for any possible reason/excuse.
This means that there is no make-up for the final exam!
If you are absent more than three times during the semester you may
be dropped from the course.
Evaluations: One of the changes that GoSOLAR
has brought is that now Student Course Evalutions will be filled out
online. When you go to the student GoSOLAR
screen, one of your link choices will be the evaluations. Please take
advantage of this opportunity to give me feedback on this course.
Your submission is anonymous, and I cannot view it before I assign
your grade. Also, you must submit the evaluation before you know your
grade. I will remind you again to fill out the evaluation as we near
the end of the course.
Contact - You all have a GSU e-mail address that looks like
This is the address I will use when I need to contact you, either
individually or as a class. You are responsible for reading any
requirements, changes, announcements, etc. that are sent to you
via this e-mail address. Hence, you should check it at least once
daily. If you prefer to use another e-mail account(s), you must
activate the mail forwarding feature under Options>Mailbox
Management while in your GSU e-mail, so that e-mail from
me will reach whatever other e-mail account(s) you have specified.
I emphasize that you are responsible for this.
