Class project materials notebook @ IMU Bookstore ONLY
		Bring this notebook to class on September 7.

Purpose:	N220 is offered as a general beginning course in human
nutrition for students outside of majors in dietetics or nutrition
science.  Emphasis is placed on the role of food and nutrients in
sustaining health.  Current concepts and controversies in nutrition
are highlighted.

COURSE REQUIREMENTS:

1.	Students are expected to attend class on time and be willing
to participate.

2.	Exams: There are four (4) exams (including the final exam.)
Each exam is worth 40 points.  The final is not cumulative.  Types of
questions include multiple choice, matching and true/false.  You will
receive a brief review sheet of the lectures before each exam.  No
make up exams will be provided.

3.	Computer Modules:  Nutrition for a Healthy Lifestyle
	There are three (3) CAI (computer assisted instruction)
modules for which you are responsible.  Review of and instructions for
these modules will be on TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER7.  By all means DO NOT
MISS THIS CLASS!!!  Although you will not be directly graded on
completion of these modules, they are considered testable material;
thus, it is in your grade's best interest to complete all modules.
Please note you have received release time to complete the modules.

	Following are those modules available and the exams on which
they will be covered.  Pages 6 & 7 of this syllabus include directions
and outlines of the module.

4.	Diet Analysis project (40 points):  On September 7 procedures
for completing the Diet Analysis Project will be discussed.  You will
record and analyze a 3-day food and activity record using the
FoodWorks - College Edition software program that comes with your
book.   If you do not have the CD-ROM or cannot use the one that came
with your book, you can access the program at the University PC
computer clusters.  You will also use the project book that you
purchased at the IMU Bookstore to further evaluate your diet, eating,
and lifestyle habits.  Your project grades will be based on
completeness and neatness of the project along with your analysis and
insight for appropriate dietary and lifestyle changes.

	This project has various due dates.  Please refer to your
class calendar and directions for completing the project for these
dates.

	Special note about handing in these projects: They are due IN
CLASS - at the end of class!!  You must hand in the project
(personally) to the Associate Instructor or to me so we can check off
that it has been received.   The only exception is early submission to
the Associate Instructor or to me by appointment.  A classmate cannot
hand in the project for you.  For every day late, you  receive  grade
off.  Saturday is 1 day and Sunday is another.  Weekends do not count
as one day.
			
	The project is worth 40 points.  Each phase of handing in the
project is graded.
		Part 1:   3 points
		Part 2: 10 points
		Part 3:   2 points
		Part 4: 25 points
	If any part is not turned in at the assigned time, an
additional 5 points will be subtracted
	from your total score

	If you lose your booklet, or a page becomes soiled, there will
be a copy on reserve in the HPER library for you to copy.

5.  Food Label Activity (20 points) In this activity, you can choose
one of three activities and
	complete the project alone or in pairs.  If in pairs, you will
each receive the same grade.  Your grade will be based on accuracy,
completeness and neatness.  These projects involve analyzing food
labels and/or your selection of foods.  Projects may be handed in at
any time up to NOVEMBER 9. Your grade for the project will be e-mailed
to you soon after you turn it in.    You will turn in your project (in
person ) to the AI (Associate Instructor) during her office hours or
to me at the END of class.  Projects WILL NOT be accepted before or at
the beginning of class. After the final project is graded, everyone
will receive the graded report. Instructions of this project are found
on pages 8-9 of this syllabus.
