Exams: There will be two "midterm examinations" held in the late afternoon and an in-class final examination. A significant number of exam problems will be related to proof writing. So make sure that you understand all the proofs covered in class and that you know how to solve all the written homework exercises. Do not make plans to leave Hanover before the end of the final exam week. The exams will not be given earlier to accommodate your travel plans. The exams are scheduled as follows:



1st  Midterm Exam

2nd Midterm Exam 

4-6PM  PM on Monday November 9 in Carpenter 013

Final Exam

Written Homework and WeBWorK homework: will be assigned after each lecture. The Written homework can be found here; the WeBWorK homework can be found by logging into the WeBWorK here.

All homework  will generally be due on Friday following the week when it  was assigned.  Written homework will be due at the class time and WeBWorK will be due by 8 AM.) If for some reason there will be no class on Friday, the homework deadline for that week will be announced separately.

Late homework will not be accepted in the absence of divine intervention or matters of similar weight. Unexcused late and missing papers count zero.


Tutorials for the class are 6-8 PM on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Sundays in Kemeny 007. They will be run by the Graduate Student Teaching Assistant Natalie Komarov. Please note that the students in the previous years found these tutorials to be very helpful!


Honors Principle:

·       On Exams: No help given or received.

·       On Homework: Collaboration on homework is allowed and encouraged but no copying! Note that the figures, and hence the answers,  in the WeBWorK homework assignments are likely to be distinct for all the students in the class

·       In general: when in doubt ask before doing.

Disabilities: Students with learning, physical, or psychiatric disabilities enrolled in this course that may need disability-related classroom accommodations are encouraged to make an office appointment to see your instructor before the end of the second week of the term. All discussions will remain confidential, although the Student Accessibility Services office may be consulted to discuss appropriate implementation of any accommodation requested. At such a meeting please provide your instructor with a copy of a disability registration form, which lists the accommodations recommended for the student by Student Disability Services within the Academic Skills Center The person you might want to contact at the Academic Skills center is Ward Newmeyer, Interim Director of Student Accessibility Services 301 Collis Center - (603) 646-9900.

Student Religious Observances: Some students may wish to take part in religious observances that fall during this academic term.  Should you have a religious observance that conflicts with your participation in the course, please come speak with your instructor before the end of the second week of the term to discuss appropriate accommodations.
