The final exam is scheduled by the Registrar. No early final exams will be given. The final will cover the entire course, but will emphasize material covered since the second exam.

Calculators may not be used on any of the exams.

Grading: Final letter grades will be determined as follows:
Exams 25% each
Final exam 40%
Homework 10%

Honor Code:
Homework: You may work together on assignments or talk to your instructor about them. However, write up all homework to be graded by yourself. Copying from another person's paper is a violation of the honor code, even if you worked with that person.
Exams: All exams are closed book. Giving or receiving any help during an exam is a violation of the honor code.

I encourage students with disabilities, including "invisible" disabilities like chronic diseases and learning disabilities, to discuss with me after class or during office hours any appropriate accommodations that might be helpful.

Tutorials: Tutorials will be held starting Sunday, January 10, each Sunday, Tuesday, and Thursday evening, 7-9 p.m. in Bradley 104. Our tutor is Barry Balof.
