Textbook:
Food and Beverage Cost Control, 4^{th} Edition, by Lea Dopson et al.
This
calendar is meant to give us a schedule which will keep us on track for the
semester. We need to finish a chapter a week (and two chapters in the last
week) in order to properly complete this course and prepare you for the
Controlling Food Costs Competency Exam. The homework and quiz dates will not
change and you may put these important dates in your planners. The Material Covered column is subject to
change slightly (the page numbers are approximations, not guarantees); however,
we will complete a chapter a week as planned. If you miss a class use this
schedule to keep up with the class.

FINALS WEEK 

Each
class will begin with a Daily Review Question. You will have 510 minutes to
complete your Daily Review Question. Every Daily Review Question will ask you
to provide definitions for terms chosen from the Key Terms and Concepts section
of the chapter were working on. You may use your book for the Daily Review
Question the purpose of this activity is to practice using the terminology
needed for discussions of food and beverage cost control.
There
will be paperbased and computerbased homework assignments in our class. All
paperbased assignments are due at the beginning of class. All computerbased
assignments are due by email before the start of class (this will be determined
using the timestamp on the email so be cautious and email all assignments
with plenty of time). There will be homework assignments for each chapter of
the textbook.
Late
homework assignments will be accepted but 10% will be deducted from the grade
for each day the assignment is late.
There
will be 11 multiplechoice quizzes in this class. These quizzes are
closedbook/closednote quizzes. The quizzes will occur at the end of our
Thursday classes and each quiz should take 1015 to complete. There will be no
makeup quizzes; however, an additional assignment can be done each week to
makeup a missed quiz. See the section on Makeup Work for more information
about this option.
You
must attend class regularly and punctually. Excessive absences or lateness
hinder your ability to learn the subject matter and therefore will result in
failing grades. Students who are absent or late to over 15% of the program may
be terminated from the school. Any student not present at the start of the
scheduled class time will be considered late. A student who is dismissed from
class, for any reason, will not receive any attendance credit for the day.
Your
attendance will be calculated using the following formula:
0.25 points will be earned if you
are present at the beginning of class
0.25 points will be earned if you
complete and turn in the Daily Review Question
0.25 points will be earned if you are a collegially
participating member of the class
0.25 points will be earned if you are present at the
end of the class
There
is a lot to cover in this course and every class meeting is important. If you
are absent for more than three (3) classes you will drop below the 15%
permitted by the institute. Therefore, if you have three or more unexcused
absences an official letter will be sent to the school director. You may be
dismissed from the program.
You are required to makeup work
and tests to meet the school's requirements. You may request to makeup any
missed work (including quizzes) with me. You are required to make this request
within 7 calendar days of the date of the original quiz or proficiency. Note:
you will earn halfcredit on all makeup work.
Students
are expected to conduct themselves as professionals at all times in keeping
with hospitality industry practices. Students should view enrollment as part of
their professional growth, a step towards the temperament and attitude of the
hospitality industry. A student's enrollment may be discontinued for
unsatisfactory progress, excessive absences (over 15% of the course), failure to make scheduled tuition payments, violation of
school rules, or violation of the school's policy on smoking, drug or alcohol
use, or destruction or defacement of school property. Students will be given
adequate notice of the school's intent to terminate their enrollment.
All
students must be honest and forthright in their academic studies. To falsify
the results of ones work, to steal the words or ideas of another, to cheat on
an assignment, or to allow or assist another to commit these acts corrupts the
educational process. Students are expected to do their own work and neither give nor receive unauthorized assistance. If academic
dishonesty is suspected, all suspected students will receive a zero on their
assignment or exam.
There
will be zero tolerance for students using cell phones in this class. Your cell
phone must be turned off or turned to silent before the start of class. If
the class is disturbed by any noise caused by your cell phone, you will be
immediately dismissed from class. There are no exceptions.
All
students must follow the school dress code at all times. Therefore, you need to
be in uniform when you are in our class. If you are not in uniform, you will be
given the opportunity to fix the problem. If you are unable or unwilling to do
so, you will be dismissed from class.
Your
grade will be calculated using the following formula:
