That package of papers teachers and professors hand out to students on the first day of class that explains course expectations, weekly schedule, grading policies, and a basic summary of class topics. The syllabus is used in high schools, colleges, and universities around the world as a way to show consistency of the learned material.
Ross: Ok, students here is your syllabus for the next 18 weeks. You have 3 exams, 2 papers, and one homework assignment each week.
