Scheduled Lectures

We will meet MWF in the 12 period: 12:30--1:35pm.  Our x-hour is on Tuesdays from 1:00--1:50pm.  We will use the x-hour for exams, to make up classes missed due to holidays and to go over homework.  I will try to announce these uses via the announcement window above.

All students should be aware of important deadlines during the term.  The registrar provides a list of these on the Summer 2011 College Calendar.

The Honor Principle

On Exams: No help given or received

On Homework: Collaboration is permitted and encouraged -- a discussion of the general idea of the problem(s) with myself, the grader and others is desirable.  Hwever, each student is expected to complete his or her assignments individually and independently. 


Students with disabilities are encouraged to contact me as soon as convenient to disuss appropriate accommodations. Also, they should stop by the Academic Skills Center in Collis Center to register for support services.
