Exams |

There will be two midterm exams and a final. All exams will likely be take-home, but I reserve the right to change this policy with due warning. Exam dates are scheduled as follows:

Exam 1 | October 17 |

Exam 2 | November 7 |

Final Exam | Saturday, December 8, 3 pm |

Homework Policy |
---|

- Homework will be assigned daily and collected on Wednesdays at
the
**beginning**of class. Problems assigned M, W, F will be due the following Wednesday. - Late homework will
**not**be accepted. Late homework includes any homework delivered after I have started class on Wednesday. - Homework must be written neatly on loose leaf paper (not paper that has been torn out of a spiral binder) and stapled or paper-clipped.
- Clearly label each problem with the section and problem number.
- Show all your work for each problem, regardless of whether you are able to finish it. This is the only way that partial credit can be assigned.
- Write your solutions in complete sentences. You should be able to read your solutions as fluently as if you were reading your textbook.
- Follow the Honor Principle as I have described it below.

Grades |
---|

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.

Disabilities |

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.
