backbone and the internet for most assignments. You will be instructed
on how to obtain the materials you need early in the semester. Subsequently,
it will be your responsibility to log onto the system and access

ACADEMIC DISHONESTY: Academic honesty is fundamental to the
activities and principles of a university. All members of the academic
community must be confident that each person's work has been responsibly
and honorably acquired, developed, and presented. Any effort to
gain an advantage not given to all students is dishonest whether
or not the effort is successful. The academic community regards
academic dishonesty as an extremely serious matter, with serious
consequences that range from probation to expulsion. When in doubt
about plagiarism, paraphrasing, quoting, or collaboration, consult
the course instructor.
