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

Exam 1 Wednesday, October 5, 4-6 pm Murdough A02 Cook Auditorium Exam 1 and Solutions
Exam 2 Wednesday, October 26, 4-6 pm Murdough A02 Cook Auditorium Exam 2 and Solutions with Problem 7 bonus material
Final Exam Friday, November 18, 11:30 a.m. - 2:30 p.m. Murdough A02 Cook Auditorium

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 at least one week in advance so possible alternative arrangements can be pursued.

All students must take the final at the scheduled time, unless they are scheduled by the registrar to have two conflicting examinations or three examinations on a single calendar day. In particular, no final will be given early or late to accommodate student travel plans. If you make travel plans that later turn out to conflict with the scheduled exam, then it is your responsibility to either reschedule your travel plans or take a zero in the final.

If you have a question about how your exam was graded, you can ask your instructor; to have your exam regraded, please submit your question in writing to your instructor.

For practice midterms, please see the practice exams section on the Downloads page.


  • Read the assigned sections of the textbook before each class.
  • WeBWorK problems will be assigned daily. They are due by 10am on the day of the next class meeting, and they are officially collected at 10am the class meeting after that.
  • Written assignments will be assigned weekly. They will be due each Wednesday, turned into homework boxes outside of Kemeny 008 105 by 3:30 p.m., 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.
  • In written homework (and on exams), be sure that you show your work, explain all steps, and write neatly. A correct answer with no work shown or that cannot be read will receive minimal credit. This is good practice for what will be expected on exams.
  • Only the Downloads page you will find a FERPA waiver; please sign it and return it with your first homework. If you choose to sign the waiver portion, you will be able to collect your homework from the boxes in the hallway of Kemeny Hall. If you decline to sign the waiver portion, you can collect your homework from your instructor's office by showing your Dartmouth ID.
  • If you have a question about how homework was graded, you can ask your instructor; to have it regraded, please submit your question in writing to Ina Petkova.
  • Late written homework will be graded according to the following scheme: Less than 24 hour late, 80%; less than 48 hours late, 60%; less than 5 days late, 33%.


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

WeBWorK 10%
Written homework 10%
Exam 1 20%
Exam 2 20%
Final Exam 40%
Total 100%

The Academic Honor Principle

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.

Cooperation on homework is permitted (and encouraged), but if you work together, try not take any paper away with you--in other words, you can share your thoughts (say on a blackboard), but try to walk away with only your understanding.

On WeBWorK assignments, each person in the class will receive similar problems, but the numbers will differ slightly. 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 (login name PracticeN and password PracticeN, where N is any digit from 0 to 9). Then, once you understand how to do the problems, log in to your own account and do the problems assigned to you by yourself.

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. This applies to working with tutors as well: students are welcome to take notes when working with tutors on general principles and techniques and on other example problems, but must work on the assigned homework problems on their own.

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.

Plagiarism, collusion, or other violations of the Academic Honor Principle will be referred to the Committee on Standards.

Tutorials and Study Group

The TAs for this course are Douglas Knowles, Sarah Manski, and Yunxiang Wan. Feel free to drop in as needed to the tutorials and get answers to your questions, help with your homework, and engage with the TAs and other students with the course material. Tutorials are scheduled for Sundays, Tuesdays, and Thursdays 7-9pm in Kemeny 008, starting on Tuesday, September 13.

A study group is being organized by the Academic Skills Center (ASC).

See also the Tutor Clearinghouse if you would like to find a private one-on-one peer tutor. Tutors are recruited, having done well in the subject, and are trained by the Academic Skills Center. If a student receives financial aid the College will pay for three hours of tutoring per week. If you would like to have a tutor, please go to 301 Collis and fill out an application as early in the term as possible.

Other Considerations

Some students may wish to take part in religious observances that occur during this academic term. If you have a religious observance that conflicts with your participation in the course, please meet with your instructor before the end of the second week of the term to discuss appropriate accommodations.

Students with disabilities who may need disability-related academic adjustments and services for this course are encouraged to see their instructor privately as early in the term as possible. Students requiring disability-related academic adjustments and services must consult the Student Accessibility Services office (205 Collis Student Center, 646-9900, Once SAS has authorized services, students must show the originally signed SAS Services and Consent Form and/or a letter on SAS letterhead to their professor. As a first step, if students have questions about whether they qualify to receive academic adjustments and services, they should contact the SAS office. All inquiries and discussions will remain confidential.
