There will be 1 midterm exam and a cumulative final exam. The exams will be take-home
exams. You may not consult with anyone but me on either part of an exam. You will be able
to use your book and notes on the exams unless it explicitly says otherwise. Tentative dates
for the midterm exams are as follows.
Midterm Exam ????
Final Exam ?????

We will work out a schedule for the exams during the first week of class. The final exam
period goes from December 2 through December, so If you must make travel plans before
the exam date is set, do not make plans to leave Hanover before December 7.  Exams will not
be given early to accommodate travel plans.

Homework Policy

There will be homework assignments due each day. You may (you are encouraged to) work together on the homework assignments. However, the work you turn in should be your own.  This means that after whatever
discussions you have about the problems, you should write up your own solutions in your own words. If you work with someone else from the class, please list their names at the top of your assignment.


The exams, homework, and final exam all count equally toward your grade.

The Honor Principle

See above under Homework and Exams


I encourage students with disabilities (of any kind; including ``invisible'' disabilities like chronic diseases,
learning disabilities, or psychiatric disabilities) to discuss with me after class or during my office hours
appropriate accomodations that might be helpful.  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.
