There will be two "hour examinations" and a final examination. The hour exams are scheduled as follows:

Hour Exam 1 October 20, 1998 Spaulding Auditorium 4 - 6pm
Hour Exam 2 November 11, 1998 Cook Auditorium 4 - 6pm

The Registrar's Office schedules the final exam, which will occur during the period December 5 - 9. If you must make travel plans before the schedule for final exams appears, do not make plans to leave Hanover before December 10. Exams will not be given early to accommodate travel plans.

Homework Policy

Written homework will be assigned daily and will be due before the next class meeting. Homework will be turned in to and picked up from the boxes outside of the lecture hall. Late papers will not be graded. Missing papers count zero. Moreover, neatness counts; if the grader can't read your paper, you get no credit.

Homework will be graded on an 0 - 2 point scale: 2, mostly correct; 1, about half correct, 0; mostly incorrect or missing. Homework scores will be used only in helping to determine borderline grades, although there is a very strong correlation between those who do not do the homework regularly and those who receive low exam grades.


The course grade will be based upon the scores on the two hour exams and the final exam. Homework scores affect your grade only in borderline cases.

Hour Exams 200 points (100 points each)
Final Exam 150 points
Total 350 points

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.


Tutorial assistance for this course will be available in 103 and 104 Bradley, Sundays, Tuesdays, and Thursdays from 7 -- 10 pm. Tutorials will commence on Sunday, September 27.


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.
