There will be two "hour examinations" and a final examination. The hour
exams are scheduled as follows:
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.
|Hour Exam 1 ||Thursday,
1999||5:30-7:30 pm ||Filene
|Hour Exam 2 ||Thursday,
1999||5:30-7:30 pm ||Filene
The Registrar's Office schedules the final exam, which will occur during
the period March 12-16. If you must make travel plans before the schedule
for final exams appears, do not make plans to leave Hanover before March
16. Exams will not be given early to accommodate travel plans.
|Final Exam |
|Friday, March 12,
1999||9:00 - 11:00 am||Filene
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 rear door of Filene). 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: 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
|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.
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
