Homework Policy

The homework scores not only count count towards your final grade and allow you to practice and refine your skills but, historically, those students who do the homework sets regularly fair better on the exams.


The course grade will be based upon the scores on the two midterm exams, the final exam, and the homework.

Midterm 1 100 points
Midterm 2 100 points
Final Exam 150 points
50 points
Total 400 points

The Honor Principle


Tutorial assistance for this course, that is, help with your homework, will be available in 105 Bradley Hall on Sundays, Tuesdays, and Thursdays, 7–9PM. Tutorials will begin on Sunday, September 26.

Also note that the Tutor Clearinghouse will have private one-on-one tutors available for Math 13. The tutors are recruited on the basis that they have done well in the subject, and are trained by the Academic Skills Center. If a student receives financial aid, the College will pay for three hours of tutoring per week. If you would like to have a tutor, please go to 301 Collis and fill out an application as early in the term as possible.


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.
