A syllabus functions as a contract between the professor and the students. The syllabus is a course-planning tool. It helps the instructor prepare and organize the course, and it helps the students understand the requirements to complete the course successfully. It describes the course goals; explains the course structure and assignments, and provides information about exams, review sessions, and other course activities.
The document includes:
-list of assignments
-faculty office hours, office phone and email.
The faculty want their students to succeed! If a student has any questions or concerns about what is on the syllabus ask your professor.
