|Hour Exam 2||May 17, 1999||102 Bradley||4 - 6pm|
If you have any conflict with these dates see your instructor immediately.
The Registrar's Office schedules the final exam, which will occur during the period June 4 - June 8. Exams will not be given early to accommodate travel plans.
Written homework will be assigned daily and will be due before the next class meeting. Missing papers count zero. Moreover, neatness counts; if the grader can't read your paper, you get no credit. Late papers will not be graded.
The course grade will be based upon the scores on the two hour exams, the final exam and thre homework .
|Hour Exams||50% (25% each)|
|The Honor Principle|
On Exams: No help given or received
On Homework: Collaboration is permitted and encouraged, but NO COPYING . In other words, you should feel free to talk to other students while you are in the process of thinking about a problem. However, when it comes time to write up your solutions, you should do this by yourself without outside assistance.
You will use the computer program JMP for many of your homework problems. JMP version 3.2 is available in the JMP3.2 folder in the Limited Support folder in the Key Server Controlled Software folder in the Licensed Software folder on the public file server.
Students with disabilities who will be taking this course and may need disability-related classroom accommodations are encouraged to make an appointment to see their instructor as soon as possible. Also, they should stop by the Academic Skills Center in Collis Center to register for support services.
