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. 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 exam grades.


To assist you with the homework and the course in general, there will be evening tutorials every Tuesday, Thursday, and Sunday from 6:00 to 8:00 pm in 102 Bradley Hall. Tutorials will begin on Thursday, March 30.


There will be two mid-term exams and a final exam. The mid-term exams will be given on Wednesday April 19th and Wednesday May 10th. The final will be given at a time and place during the exam period (June 2nd - June 6th) to be scheduled by the Registrar's office. No early exams will be given to accommodate over-optimistic travel plans. Students having conflicts with the mid-term exams should contact their instructor early to try to resolve them.


Your grade in the course will be determined primarily from the total points obtained on the three exams. Homework scores will be used only to resolve borderline cases.
Exam I (April 19th) 100
Exam II (May 10th)100

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.

Special Needs:

Students with special needs or disabilities should contact me as soon as possible so that we can arrange appropriate accommodations.
