There will be two "midterm exams" and a cumulative final exam. The exams are scheduled as follows:

Exam 1 | 10/10?, 4-6 pm | Room TBA |

Exam 2 | 10/31?, 4-6 pm | Room TBA |

Final Exam | Friday, November 22, 8:00 am | Room TBA |

- Webwork problems will be assigned daily. They are due by 10am on the day of the next class meeting.
- Written assignments will be assigned weekly. They will be due each Wednesday, turned into homework boxes in Kemeny, and they will typically cover the material up through the previous Friday. So the first written assignment (available on the assignments page) covers the first three classes worth of material and is due on Wednesday of week 2. There will also be a Webwork assignment due that day; plan ahead.
- Late homework will be accepted only in case of serious, unpredictable events such as documented illness or family emergency. Unexcused late and missing papers count zero.

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

Webwork | 25 points |

Written homework | 25 points |

Exam 1 | 100 points |

Exam 2 | 100 points |

Final Exam | 150 points |

Total | 400 points |

If you have a conflict with one of the midterm exams because of a religious observance, scheduled extracurricular activity such as a game or performance [not practice], scheduled laboratory for another course, or similar commitment, please see your instructor as soon as possible. If you must miss a class, it is your responsibility to submit all homework on time, and to arrange to get notes from a classmate.

Academic integrity is at the core of our mission as mathematicians and educators, and we take it very seriously. We also believe in working and learning together.

Collaboration on homework is permitted and encouraged, but obviously it is a violation of the honor code for someone to provide the answers for you.

On written homework, you are encouraged to work together, and you may get help from others, but you must write up the answers yourself. If you are part of a group of students that produces an answer to a problem, you cannot then copy that group answer. You must write up the answer individually, in your own words.

On WeBWorK assignments, each person in the class has the potential to receive a homework assignment distinct from anyone else's, but all cut from the same mold. For example if the problem were to find the minimum of ax^2 + bx + c, each student would receive their own values of a, b, and c. A good way to work together, to work with a tutor, or to ask for help, is to log in to one of the practice accounts (see the Assignments Page) and work on those problems. Then, once you understand how to do the problems, log in to your own account and do the problems yourself.

On exams, you may not give or receive help from anyone. Exams in this course are closed book, and no notes, calculators or other electronic devices are permitted.

The TA for this course is XXX. Tutorial assistance for this course and help with your homework will be available on Sundays, Tuesdays and Thursdays 7-9pm in Kemeny YYY.

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.
