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

Preliminary Exam Thursday, October 8th from 4-6 pm Kemeny 105
Midterm Exam Friday, October 30th from 4-6 pm Kemeny 105
Final Exam Friday, November 20th from 8-11 am Kemeny 008

Stundents with legitimate conflicts with the preliminary exam or midterm exam can ask to take a make-up exam from 7 to 9 pm in Carson L02. In order to sit the make-up exam, you must have an email from me officially allowing you to take the make-up.

Homework Policy


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

Webwork 50 points
Written homework 50 points
Preliminary Exam 75 points
Midterm Exam 125 points
Final Exam 200 points
Total 500 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.

The 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.

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 Juan Auli. Tutorial assistance for this course and help with your homework will be available on Sundays, Tuesdays and Thursdays 7-9pm in Haldeman 028.

Special Considerations

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.
