There will be two midterm exams and a cumulative final exam. The exams are scheduled as follows:
|Midterm 1||Monday, Jan 27, 4-6 pm||Room TBA|
|Midterm 2||Monday, Feb 17, 4-6 pm||Room TBA|
|Final Exam||Thursday, Mar 12, 3-6 pm||Room TBA|
- Webwork problems will be assigned daily. They are due by 10 am on the day of the next class meeting.
- Written assignments will be assigned weekly. They will be due each Wednesday at 4 pm, turned into homework boxes outside 008 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:
|Written homework||5 %|
|Midterm 1||25 %|
|Midterm 2||25 %|
|Final Exam||35 %|
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 TAs for this course are Melanie Ferreri and Albert Chang. Tutorial assistance for this course and help with your homework will be available on Sundays, Tuesdays and Thursdays from 7-9 pm in Kemeny TBA.▲
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 ax2 + 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.▲
Students with disabilities who may need disability-related academic adjustments and service for this course are encouraged to see me privately as early in the term as possible. Students requiring disability-related academic adjustments and services must consult the Student Accessibility Service office (Carson Hall, Suite 125, 646-9900). Once SAS has authorized services, students must show the originally signed SAS Services and Consent Form and/or a letter on a SAS letterhead to their professor. As a first step, if students have question about whether they qualify to receive academic adjustments and services, they should contact the SAS office. All inquiries and discussions will remain confidential.▲
The academic environment at Dartmouth is challenging, our terms are intensive, and classes are not the only demanding part of your life. There are a number of resources available to you on campus to support your wellness, including your Undergraduate Dean and the Student Wellness Center.▲
Student Religious Observances
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 you participation in the course, please meet with me before the end of the second week of the term to discuss appropriate accommodations.
