Class Meetings:
Class meetings consist of three 65-minute lectures. The lectures introduce new material and

provide the course structure.
Required Work:
There will be two hour-exams and a (two-hour) final examination. The final exam is

scheduled by the Registrar’s office. The two hour-exams are scheduled as follows:
Hour-Exam 1Wednesday, January 31, 3:30–5:00 p.m.
Hour-Exam 2Wednesday, February 21, 3:30–5:00 p.m.
Location: 28 Silsby
Each of the two hour-exams will consist of two parts—a multiple-choice part and a non

multiple-choice part where partial credit can be earned. The final exam will be multiple-
choice. No calculators or computers will be needed or allowed in the sit-down exams. But
you will be able to use one 8 1/2 x 11 sheet of notes in the exams.

2.Homework Problem Sets:
Homework will be assigned at class meetings and will be due by 11:00 a.m. on the day of

the next class meting. This is the suggested or soft due-date. The hard due-date will be two
or more days later, will always be on a class day at 11:00 a.m., and will be posted on the
assignment. Because of scheduling, more than one assignment may be due on the same day.
It will be up to you to keep up with the due-dates.

You will get and turn in your homework over the web using WeBWorK (we will say more
about that below).

Late homework counts zero without an excuse from your instructor, obtained well before
the hard due-date of the assignment. Only requests such as documented medical
emergencies will be approved.


You will be using the computer program WeBWorK to get the homework problems and
submit your answers. WeBWorK will also keep track of the points you earn. See the web
page an introduction to

the system.
