Homework Assigments
Jump to homework assignments.
In Math 13 you have a number of responsibilities, the first of which
is being fully aware of the content of the
general
information page.
In particular, that page contains:
There are webbased homework assignments which are due before each
class period, as well as written assignments which are due once a
week. Further details are provided both by the above links (but you've looked at those already) as well as below.
Webbased homework assigments
The
daily webbased problems can be accessed via the
WeBWorK Login
link on the navigation bar at the top of the page.
It is highly recommended that you keep a notebook in which you write
up your WeBWorK homework (including your work as well as the answers).
Then when you are studying for exams, you will have a record of
your work two which to refer.
Written homework assigments
The weekly written homework assignments will be posted here.
 Written homework should be turned in to the homework boxes outside
of Kemeny 105 by 11:15am on the due date.
 Make sure that you show all your work and explain all the steps.
A correct answer with no work shown will receive minimal credit.
This is good practice for what will be expected on exams.
 Make sure your homework is neatly written; if the graders cannot read it, you will receive zero credit.
We also have some technical requirements: Use standardsized paper that does not have
ragged edges from being torn out of a spiral notebook.
 Download a copy of the FERPA waiver, and print it.
By the way, FERPA which stands for the Family Educational Rights and
Privacy Act guarantees the privacy of your academic records. In the
context of graded papers, it means we cannot return them to homework
boxes (since someone else could look at your paper and see your
grade), unless you sign a waiver giving us permission to do so. If
you choose to sign the waiver, please give it to your instructor
during the first weel of term. If you do not sign it, you can collect
your homework from your instructor's office by showing your Dartmouth
ID.

 Preliminary Exam: The preliminary exam was more
difficult that I had hoped. The median was 46 (out of a total of
75). You can see a histogram of
the scores here with additional statistics. I will send you a link
to solutions in a canvas announcement.
The message here is that
we both have to work harder. You have to study more efficiently,
and I have to present the material more clearly. Even though it
is too early to think about grades, here are some very approximate
guidelines as to where you stand gradewise.
 Ignore any percentage columns in Canvas. I have posted score
out of 15 for your first two written homeworks, and another score
out of 15 for your first seven webworks. Add this to your score
out of 75 for the preliminary exam. (Canvas does not do the sum
 you have to do this yourself.) This gives you a number our of
105.
 Totals of 85 or more are doing "A" work.
 Totals of 60 or more are doing "B" work.
 Totals of 50 or more are doing "C" work.
 Student with total score less than 50 should see me in office hours.

 Midterm Exam: The midterm exams have been returned to

 A histogram of the scores
and other statistical data is available here.
 Everyone should compare their answers with the
solutions distributed via a canvas announcement. In
particular, you are very welcome to ask how your exam was
graded, but only if you have compared your solution to
the given solution.
 A very rough idea of how you are doing in the course can
be computed as follows. On canvas, I have given you a grade
out of 40 for your first 5 written homeworks and other grade
also out of 40 for your first 13 webwork assignments. Adding
these scores to you two exam grades gives you a number out of
$75 + 125 + 40 +40 =280$. Totals above 210 are doing "A"
work. Totals above 163 are doing "B" work. Totals above 140
are doing "C" work. If your total is below 140, we should talk.
