Maple: We will be using the software package Maple from time to time. If you are not familiar with Maple, one or more of these pages should help get you started:

Grade: Your grade will be determined as follows:

Category                 Weight         
homework and quizzes      15%            
two mid-term exams        25% each       
final exam                35%                                                  

Exams: The date, time, and format of all exams are yet to be determined.

Makeup policy: Homework will be assigned (almost) every class period, and will be due at the next class meeting. No late homework will be accepted for any reason, but your three lowest homework scores will be dropped before computing your grade. Thus you may miss up to three homework assignments without penalty.

Makeup tests will only be given in case of legitimate emergencies.

Tutorial: At this point, it seems unlikely that there will be a tutorial for math 14. More information as it becomes available.

Honor policy:

Students with disabilities: Any student with a documented disability needing academic adjustments or accommodations is requested to speak with the professor 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 fo the disability.
