There will be two midterm examinations and a final examination. Most likely, all exams will be take home. The tentative dates for the midterms are as follows:

Exam 1 10/20
Exam 2 11/8 Solutions

The Registrar's Office has scheduled the final exam for December 4, 8 - 11am, but, as mentioned above, this exam will be take-home and will be due during the final exam period.
Homework Policy


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

Homework 100 points
Midterm Exams 200 points
Final Exam 150 points
Total 450 points

The Honor Principle

On Exams: No help given or received

On Homework: Students are permitted and encouraged to collaborate with one another on homework assignments. However, each student must complete the final draft of each assignment individually and independently. No copying!

Office Hours

To make it easier for all of us, I will hold office hours on Sunday, Tuesday and Thursday nights, 8 - 9 pm, in Gerry 104.
Of course, I will still also be available by appointment.


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 Academic Skills Center in Collis Center to register for support services.
