Midterm Exams 2 100 200
Final Exam 1 150 150
Quizzes 8(-1) 10 70
Webwork 26 4 104
Written homework 9(-2) 15 105
Total 629 points

One lowest grade in quizzes and two lowest grades in written homework will be dropped.

The Honor Principle

On Exams and Quizzes: No help given or received

On WebWork: Each person in the class has the potential to receive a homework assignment distinct from anyone elses, but all cut from the same mold. For example if the problem were to find the minimum of ax^2 + bx + c, each student would receive their own values of a, b, and c.

Collaboration on homework is permitted and encouraged, but obviously it is a violation of the honor code for someone to provide the answers for you and you should write your solutions.

Disabilities, Religious Observance, Etc

Students with disabilities enrolled in this course and who may need disability-related classroom accommodations are encouraged to make an 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.

Some students may wish to take part in religious observances that occur during this academic term. If you have a religious observance that conflicts with your participation in the course, please meet with your instructor before the end of the second week of the term to discuss appropriate accommodations.
