Homework Policy |

- Written assignments will be assigned weekly. They will be due each
Wednesday in class, and they will
typically cover the material up through the previous Friday. So the
first written assignment (available on the assignments page) covers
the first three classes worth of material and is due on Wednesday of
week 2.

- Late homework will be accepted only in case of serious, unpredictable events such as documented illness or family emergency. Unexcused late and missing papers count zero.

Grades |
---|

The course grade will be based upon the scores on the midterm exam, homework, and the final exam as follows:

Homework | 20 points |

Midterm 1 | 20 points |

Midterm 2 | 20 points |

Final Exam | 40 points |

Total | 100 points |

If you have a conflict with one of the midterm exams because of a religious observance, scheduled extracurricular activity such as a game or performance [not practice], scheduled laboratory for another course, or similar commitment, please see your instructor as soon as possible. If you must miss a class, it is your responsibility to submit all homework on time, and to arrange to get notes from a classmate.

The Honor Principle |
---|

Academic integrity is at the core of our mission as mathematicians and educators, and we take it very seriously. We also believe in working and learning together.

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.

On written homework, you are encouraged to work together, and you may get help from others, but you must write up the answers yourself. If you are part of a group of students that produces an answer to a problem, you cannot then copy that group answer. You must write up the answer individually, in your own words.

As always, no collaboration is allowed duirng exams, including the take-home midterm.

Tex |
---|

It is encouraged that you start using Tex/LaTex for writing math homework. If you have any questions regarding Tex, please feel free to contact Shirley Zhao . Email: shirley [dot] zhao [at] dartmouth [dot] edu

Special Considerations |
---|

Students with disabilities who will be taking this course and may need disability-related classroom accommodations are encouraged to make an appointment to see their instructor as soon as possible. Also, they should stop by the Student Accessibility Services in Collis Center to register for support services.
