Exams:
There will be two midterm exams and a final exam. The midterm exams
will be part in class and part take home. The in class portion will
be given in our xhour on Jan 31st and Feb 21st (dates subject to change).
The take home portion will be due at the beginning of the next class
meeting (aka Friday). The final will be given at a time and place during
the exam period (March 10  March 14) which will be scheduled by the Registrar's
office near the end of January. No early exams will be given to accomodate
overoptimistic travel plans.
Students having conflicts with the midterm exams should contact their
instructor early to try to resolve them.

Homework Policy:
Homework is not meant to be competitive, but is absolutely crucial to learning
the material. Homework assignments will be made daily via this web
page and will be due as indicated. Late homework will not be accepted.
The Honor Principle:
On exams: No help given or received.
On homework: Collaboration and the use of computers are permitted
and encouraged, but NO COPYING . In other words, you should feel free to
talk to other students, myself or anyone else while you are in the process
of thinking about a problem. However, when it comes time to write up your
solutions, you should do this by yourself without outside assistance.
Special Needs:
Students with special needs or disabilities should contact me as soon
as possible so that we can arrange appropriate accommodations.
