There will be two "midterm exams" and a cumulative final exam. The exams are scheduled as follows:
Exam 1 Wednesday April 22, 4-6 pm LSC Arvo J. Oopik 1978 Auditorium (Room 100)
Exam 2 Friday May 15, 4-6 pm Moore Filene Auditorium
Final Exam Friday June 5, 3-6 pm Moore Filene Auditorium

Homework Policy


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

Written homework 20%
Exam 1 25%
Exam 2 25%
Final Exam 30%
Total 100%

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 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 David Freund. Tutorial assistance for this course and help with your homework will be available on Sundays, Tuesdays and Thursdays 7-9pm in Kemeny 008.

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 224 Baker to register for support services.
