There will be two "midterm examinations" and a final examination. The hour exams will come in two parts, an in-class portion in the exam period, followed by a take-home portion handed out in the exam period and due the next day. The exams are scheduled as follows:

Exam 1 July 18, 2012 In class / Takehome exam
Exam 2 August 8, 2012 In class / Takehome exam
Final Exam Saturday, Aug. 25, 2012 3-6 PM, Kemeny 105.

Homework Policy


The course grade will be based upon the scores on the midterm exam, homework, and the final exam as follows:

Midterm Exams 200 points (100 points each)
Homework 100 points
Final Exam 200 points
Total 500 points

The Honor Principle

On Exams: No help given or received

On Homework: You are encouraged to work together on assignments in the "figuring it out" phase, but the "writing it up" phase is strictly individual. That is, you may not copy another student's write-up, even if you collaborated on solving the problem.

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.
