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 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 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.

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.
