Homework Policy
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, posted to the assignments page. 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. Starting assignments early will ensure you have at least some work to submit for grading.
Consult the honor principle (below) as it applies to this course.

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
Midterm Exams 100 points (each)
Final Exam 150 points
Total 450 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.
On Homework: Collaboration is permitted and encouraged, but no copying , and to be clear, this means no copying even from a board or scrap of paper on which a solution was hashed out collaboratively. What a student turns in as a homework solution is to be his or her own understanding of how to do the problems. Students must state what sources they have consulted, with whom they have collaborated, and from whom they have received help. The solutions you submit must be written by you alone. Any copying (electronic or otherwise) of another person's solutions, in whole or in part, is a violation of the Academic Honor Code.
On Exams: Students may not receive assistance of any kind from any source (living, published, electronic, etc), except the professor, and may not give assistance to anyone. Matters of clarification are to be left to the professor.
If you have any questions as to whether some action would be acceptable under the Academic Honor Code, please speak to your instructor, and they will be glad to help clarify things. It is always easier to ask beforehand.

Tutorial assistance for this course, that is, help with your homework, will be available in 007 Kemeny, Sundays, Tuesdays, and Thursdays evenings 7 - 9pm. Tutorials will begin on Tuesday, March 29. Your tutor's name is Angelica Babei.

Disabilities, Religious Observances, etc.
We encourage any students with disabilities, including "invisible" disabilities such as chronic diseases and learning disabilities, to discuss appropriate accommodations with me, which might help you with this class, either after class or during office hours. Dartmouth College has an active program to help students with disabilities, and I am happy to do whatever I can to help out, as appropriate.
Any student with a documented disability requiring academic adjustments or accommodations is requested to speak with their instructor by the end of the second week of the term. All discussions will remain confidential, although the Student Accessibility Services may be consulted to verify the documentation of the disability and advise on an appropriate response to the need. It is important, however, that you talk to us soon, so that we can make whatever arrangements might be needed in a timely fashion.
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 instructors before the end of the second week of the term to discuss appropriate accommodations.
