There will be two "hour examinations" and a final examination. The hour exams are scheduled as follows:

Hour Exam 1 Thursday, January 27th5:30-7:30 pm 101 Bradley
Hour Exam 2 Thursday, February 175:30-7:30 pm 101 Bradley
Students who have valid, official conflicts with these exam times must consult with the professor sufficiently in advance of the date of the exam, or take the exam on the date and time it is scheduled. (Athletic practices and extracurricular activities are not valid excuses.)

The Registrar's Office schedules the final exam, which will occur during the period March 10-14. If you must make travel plans before the schedule for final exams appears, do not make plans to leave Hanover before March 14. Exams will not be given early to accommodate travel plans.

Homework Policy:

Written homework will be assigned daily and will be due before the next class meeting. Homework will be turned in to and picked up from the boxes outside of the lecture hall (near the second rear door of 101 Bradley next to the window). Late papers will not be graded. Missing papers count zero. Moreover, neatness counts; if the grader can't read your paper, you get no credit.

Homework will be graded on an 0 - 2 point scale (each problem): 2, mostly correct; 1, about half correct, 0; mostly incorrect or missing. Homework scores will be used only in helping to determine borderline grades, although there is a very strong correlation between those who do not do the homework regularly and those who receive low course grades.


The course grade will be based upon the scores on the two hour exams and the final exam. Homework scores affect your grade only in borderline cases.
Hour Exams 200 points (100 points each)
Final Exam 150 points
Total Points 350 points

The Honor Principle:

On Exams: No help given or received.

On Homework: Collaboration is permitted and encouraged, but NO COPYING. In other words, you should feel free to talk to other students 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.


Tutorial assistance for this course will be available in room 102 Bradley on Sundays, Tuesdays, and Thursdays from 7 -- 9 pm. (If this room is too crowded, we will reschedule for another room.)


Scientific calculators may be used on homework problems and on exams, except as follows. Palm Pilots (PDA's) and calculators with "QWERTY" (i.e., typewriter-style) keyboards may not be used. Also, any programmable or calculus-specific features (e.g. differentiation and integration) on allowed calculators may not be used. You are under the honor principle to comply with these restrictions. The purpose of this course is to teach you calculus, not how to blindly punch buttons on a machine!

Study Groups:

The Academic Skills Center runs study groups and provides tutoring services for a wide variety of courses. Study groups generally start at the end of the second week of classes. Students receiving financial aid pay $10 for joining a study group, while non-FA students pay $30 for the term.


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.
