Homework Policy


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

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

The Honor Principle

On Exams: No help may be given or received. You may ask me for clarification on any questions, but you should not discuss the problems with anyone except me until they have all been turned in. No calculators or computing devices are allowed.

On Homework: Collaboration on homework is permitted and encouraged. A discussion of the general idea of the problem(s) with instructors, tutors or fellow students is desirable. However, each student is expected to write up his or her assignments individually and independently. If you receive significant help from a collaborator or source, you should give appropriate credit in your writeup. Computing devices are allowed on homework.


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