The Honor Principle

                      On Exams: No help given or received. No calculators or computers are allowed.

                        Homework: Collaboration is permitted and encouraged -- a discussion of the general idea of the problem(s) with instructors, tutors, fellow students and others is desirable. However, each student is expected to complete his or her assignments individually and independently.


                      The course grade will be based upon your total score on the two midterm exams, the final exam and the homework assignments for the course.

Homework and Tutorials

                      You will get and turn in all Math 3 homework over the World Wide Web using WeBWorK. Homework due-dates will be shown on the WeBWorK assignments, which will generally be due at 9:30 a.m. on the second class day after the class in which the material is covered. Answers will be available at 11:15 a.m. on the same day. Late homework will not be accepted without advance permission from your instructor, obtained well before the assignment is due. There will normally be at least one class-day between the day homework is assigned and the day it is due, thereby providing plenty of opportunity for you to get your questions answered.


                      Tutorial assistance for this course (help with your homework) will be available Sunday, Tuesday, and Thursday evenings 7 - 9pm in Kemeny 006. Tutorials will begin on Thursday, January 6. Our TA is Jonathan Bloom.
