Class meets three times per week and occasionally on X-hours. You will be expected to attend your section of the class; excessive absences will affect your course grade.
If you must miss class, please contact your instructor in advance.
Homework will consist of two parts:
Late homework will be reviewed, but you will recieve a score of 0.
Collaboration on homework is permitted and encouraged, but all homework is to be written up independently!
|The Honor Principle|
On Exams and Quizzes: No help given or
received. All exams and quizzes will be closed book. No
calculators or computers are allowed--please let this guide your use of them elsewhere in the course.
On Homework: Working together is permitted and encouraged, but NO COPYING. You are welcome to work in groups to discuss the ideas and specific problems (also feel free to talk with your instructors, tutors, and anyone else you may find). However, each student is expected to produce the final written homework set individually and independently. This means you cannot simply copy down the solution arrived at by the group, even if you were a member of the group. Computing devices are allowed on homework.
Grades will be computed in two different ways. You will receive the higher of the two scores.

There is one graduate TA, Asa Levi. He will run tutorial sessions in Kemeny 006, on Sunday, Tuesday, and Thursday evenings from 6:00pm to 8:00pm. Tutorials will begin on Sunday, September 27th.
The Tutor Clearinghouse has organized study groups for this course, and private one-on-one tutors are also sometimes available for Math 13.
The tutors and study group leaders are recruited on the basis that they have done well in the subject, and are trained by the Academic Skills Center.
Study Groups for this term will meet as follows:
Sunday 4-5:30 PM in Kemeny 006
Monday 7-9 PM in Kemeny 006
We encourage any students with disabilities, including
"invisible" disabilities such as chronic diseases and learning disabilities,
to discuss appropriate accommodations with us, which might help you with this class,
either after class or during office hours. Dartmouth College has an active program to
help students with disabilities, and we are happy to do whatever we can to help out, as appropriate.
The Student Disabilities Coordinator, Nancy Pompian, can be reached at 6-2014 if you have any questions. Any student with a documented disability requiring academic adjustments or accommodations is requested to speak with their instructor by the end of the second week of the term. All discussions will remain confidential, although the Academic Skills Center may be consulted to verify the documentation of the disability and advise on an appropriate response to the need. It is important, however, that you talk to one of us as soon, so that we can make whatever arrangements might be needed in a timely fashion.
Whether or not you have a disability, the Academic Skills Center is an excellent place to visit. Take some time to look at their videos and other resources. Would you benefit from some of the planning tools? Do you think you could improve your note-taking skills? Is stress eating your life? You're the only one who knows what might benefit you, and it doesn't hurt to look.
