1 Colorado Christian University Science Department Semester/Year Class Syllabus Course Title: Course Number: Instructor: Environmental Science BIO-103 Dr. Bob Smith, Ph.D. Office location: Leprino 110 Office hours: M,W,F 1:00 5:00 Office telephone: address: Required materials: Keller, Edward A. & Botkin, Daniel B. (2010) Essential environmental science. New Jersey: Smith & Sons Additional Materials: Environmental Course Description/Objectives: The course is an introduction to environmental science with an emphasis on the complexity and interrelatedness of environmental issues, concerns, problems, and economics. The impact of humans on ecosystems, resources, energy and the environmental are presented. Special reference is made to the significance of sustainability and the politics involved in its promotion. The problems of pollution, waste management, hazardous and toxic materials are explored in depth. The roles of business, industry and government related to the environment will be addressed. Course Prerequisite: none, but it is highly recommended that a pre-college or college-level composition course be completed prior to enrolling in Environmental Science. School Policies: 1. Assessment: Students will be assessed using formative and summative methods such as tests, papers, labs, projects, quizzes and participation. 2. Plagiarism: Submitting plagiarized work for an academic requirement is considered misconduct. Plagiarism is the representation of another s work of ideas as one s own; it includes the unacknowledged use of another person s ideas. 1

2 3. Lecture participation: Students are encouraged to participate in the learning process and are responsible for all assigned readings. It is recommended that students complete each reading and assignment prior to the corresponding class. 4. Lab participation: Students are required to participate in all labs. Attending less than 70% of the labs is an automatic failure of the course. 5. Exams and Quizzes: Students will be allowed to make up 1 exam or quiz at the discretion of the instructor, and arrangements must be made within 24 hours of the missed exam or quiz. Makeup of missed exams must be arranged with the faculty and completed within the week of return to class. A valid excuse must be given and may require a written excuse. 6. Exams and quizzes: Students will have weekly quizzes and unit exams. The course will have two finals-one at the end of each semester. 7. Class assignments: (lecture and lab) Students will have a one-day grace period for submission of the class assignments. Assignments turned in after the grace period will be considered late and will have points reduced by 10% for every calendar day the assignment is late. 8. Lab: Labs are open for use when a faculty or lab monitor is present and there is not a class present in the lab. Lab safety is the responsibility of all and you are expected to read and abide by the safety guidelines. Students must sign lab waivers prior to participating in labs. 9. Cell phones: Cell phones must be kept out of sight and the ringer turned off at all times. 10. Academic misconduct: Any activity that compromises the academic integrity of the course or subverts the educational process will be investigated by the school and dealt with accordingly. Examples include, but are not limited to: cheating on exams and/or class assignments, plagiarism, falsification of records, unethical computer use, and unauthorized removal of materials from the classroom, lab, library or offices. 11. This syllabus is subject to change. All changes will be announced in class and online with a new syllabus posted. Course Evaluation Criteria: Exams 60% Labs 20% Assignments 10% Recitation 10% 2
