Learning Outcomes: By the end of the course students will be able to:
Students with Disabilities: Accommodations are
collaborative efforts between students, faculty and Services for
Students with Disabilities (SSD). Students with accommodations approved
through SSD are responsible for contacting the faculty member in charge
of the course prior to or during the first week of the term to discuss
accommodations. Students who believe they are eligible for
accommodations but who have not yet obtained approval through SSD
should contact SSD immediately at 7374098.

Academic Dishonesty: You are permitted, and to a great extent encouraged, to work with others on homework sets. However, there is an obvious difference between constructive discussion of a particular problem and copying. Acts of academic dishonesty will not be tolerated and will be handled according to university policy. (See http://oregonstate.edu/admin/stucon/achon.htm for details.)
