Week 1 Welcome Memo
~

A note on the slide formats: Since at this point we do not know what software you are using on your computer, we offer the slides in two formats. We recommend you first try "(.pdf)" pdf logo.png, the “Portable Document Format” that is the open standard for document exchange. If you have problems with that format, please try "(.pptx)" pptx icon.jpg, Office PowerPoint 2007. It is unlikely that you will have problems with both of them, but if you do, please let us know: troufs@d.umn.edu. When the materials are on your screen they should be running as a slide show. If you want or need to upgrade your software, you can download the latest PowerPoint viewer free, as well as download the latest Adobe .pdf Reader free.

Thanks—Tim Roufs

Introduction to Video

Bronisław Malinowski

  • The Trobriand Islands (1915)
    • matrilineal

  • Magic, Science, and Religion (1948)

  • A Scientific Theory of Culture (1944)

    • "Malinowski argued that culture functioned to meet the needs of individuals rather than society as a whole. He reasoned that when the needs of individuals, who comprise society, are met, then the needs of society are met." -- Wikipedia

      • Three types of needs society satisfies for individuals:

        1. individual biological needs
          • food / nutrition / water
          • reproduction
          • shelter / safety

        2. instrumental needs (institutions that meet biological needs)
          • education
          • political organization / social control / law
          • economics

        3. integrative needs (systems that encode values)
          • magic
          • religion
          • science
          • art

Brief Review of Midterm Exam

"The Strike Zone"

Calling Balls and Strikes: A Grading Analogy *

(* the analogy breaks down where, unlike an umpire's call, one can argue grading calls)

GO
Minnesota Twins Logo


Official Baseball Rules ©

Section 2.00, Definition of Terms

The STRIKE ZONE is that area over home plate the upper limit of which is a horizontal line at the midpoint between the top of the shoulders and the top of the uniform pants, and the lower level is a line at the hollow beneath the kneecap. The Strike Zone shall be determined from the batter's stance as the batter is prepared to swing at a pitched ball.

Section 9.02, The Umpire

Any umpire's decision which involves judgment, such as, but not limited to, whether a batted ball is fair or foul, whether a pitch is a strike or a ball, or whether a runner is safe or out, is final. No player, manager, coach or substitute shall object to any such judgment decisions.

Players leaving their position in the field or on base, or managers or coaches leaving the bench or coaches box, to argue on BALLS AND STRIKES will not be permitted. They should be warned if they start for the plate to protest the call. If they continue, they will be ejected from the game.

 top of page /\  A-Z index
Moodle

"The Curve"*

compare this information with official UMD Grading Policies

    The actual numbers used to determine final grades may differ slightly (in your favor) because of final adjustments (see note * below). Instructor reserves the right to curve final grades upward.


      A = 93.0%   A- = 90.0%
    B+ = 87.0%     B = 83.0%     B- = 80.0%
    C+ = 77.0%   C = 73.0%   C- = 70.0%
    D+ = 67.0%   D = 63.0%   F   = below 60.0%

    *At the end of the very end of the course there will be a final "curving" of the grades. Typically in the past that has been about 2% (usually 30-40 points.) This is intended primarily to (1) allow those who "just missed an [fill in the blank with a grade] by one point" to automatically get the higher grade, and (2) to add a little insutrance to the system to allow "benefit of the doubt" in what might have been an occasional boarderline "call."

    A score of "1" simply means that a paper was submitted and it was returned for some technical reason, such as, for e.g., it couldnt be opened in the format that was sent. For information of that sort of problem, for e.g., see <http://www.d.umn.edu/cla/faculty/troufs/tr/truploading_files.html#Pages>.

Credit Options at UMD


This course is governed by the . . .

University of Minnesota Duluth Student Academic Integrity Policy
<http://www.d.umn.edu/conduct/integrity/Academic_Integrity_Policy.htm>

UMD Office of Student and Community Standards
<http://www.d.umn.edu/conduct/>

"Academic dishonesty tarnishes UMD's reputation and discredits the accomplishments of students. UMD is committed to providing students every possible opportunity to grow in mind and spirit. This pledge can only be redeemed in an environment of trust, honesty, and fairness. As a result, academic dishonesty is regarded as a serious offense by all members of the academic community. In keeping with this ideal, this course will adhere to UMD's Student Academic Integrity Policy, which can be found at [http://www.d.umn.edu/conduct/integrity/Academic_Integrity_Policy.htm]. This policy sanctions students engaging in academic dishonesty with penalties up to and including expulsion from the university for repeat offenders." — UMD Educational Policy Committee, Jill Jensen, Chair (08/16/2007)

and the UMD Student Conduct Code
<http://www.d.umn.edu/conduct/code/>

and the

Student Conduct Code Statement (students' rights)
<http://www.d.umn.edu/conduct/conduct/conduct-statement.html>

The instructor will enforce and students are expected to follow the University's Student Conduct Code [http://www1.umn.edu/regents/policies/academic/Student_Conduct_Code.html]. Appropriate classroom conduct promotes an environment of academic achievement and integrity. Disruptive classroom behavior that substantially or repeatedly interrupts either the instructor's ability to teach, or student learning, is prohibited. Disruptive behavior includes inappropriate use of technology in the classroom. Examples include ringing cell phones, text-messaging, watching videos, playing computer games, doing email, or surfing the Internet on your computer instead of note-taking or other instructor-sanctioned activities." — UMD Educational Policy Committee, Jill Jensen, Chair (08/16/2007)

AVISO!

A Note on Extra Credit Papers

Failure to comply with the above codes and standards when submitting an Extra Credit paper will result in a penalty commensurate with the lapse, up to and including an F final grade for the course, and, at a minimum, a reduction in total points no fewer than the points available for the Extra Credit project. The penalty will not simply be a zero for the project, and the incident will be reported to the UMD Academic Integrity Officer in the Office of Student and Community Standards.

 

A Note on "Cutting and Pasting" without the Use of Quotation Marks
(EVEN IF you have a citation to the source somewhere in your paper)

If you use others' words and/or works you MUST so indicate that with the use of quotation marks. Failure to use quotation marks to indicate that the materials are not of your authorship constitutes plagiarism—even if you have a citation to the source elsewhere in your paper/work.

Patterned failure to so indicate that the materials are not of your own authorship will result in an F grade for the course.

Other instances of improper attribution will result in a 0 (zero) for the assignment (or a reduction in points equal to the value of an Extra Credit paper), and a reduction of one grade in the final grade of the course.

All incidents will be reported to the UMD Academic Integrity Officer in the Office of Student and Community Standards as is required by University Policy.



Students with disabilities:

It is the policy and practice of the University of Minnesota Duluth to create inclusive learning environments for all students, including students with disabilities.  If there are aspects of this course that result in barriers to your inclusion or your ability to meet course requirements – such as time limited exams, inaccessible web content, or the use of non-captioned videos – please notify the instructor as soon as possible.  You are also encouraged to contact the Office of Disability Resources to discuss and arrange reasonable accommodations.  Please call 218-726-6130 or visit the DR website at www.d.umn.edu/access for more information.
