General Information
Grading
The course grade will be based upon on weekly homework (10%), two midterms (25% each), a final exam (35%), and class participation (5%).
Violations of the Academic Honor Principle will be referred to the the Committee on Standards. In particular please be aware of rules regarding plagiarism and collusion.
Exams
There will be two in class midterm exams and an in class final exam. These will not be during the regular class times.
Do not make plans to leave Hanover before the end of the final exam week . The exams will not be given earlier to accommodate your travel plans. The exams are scheduled as follows:

1st midterm exam (25%):
(tentative) Thursday, January 23, 4:306:30pm location Kemeny 008.
Alternative time only for students who are unable to take the exam at the normal time: 7:009:00 pm. Kemeny 108. 
2nd midterm exam (25%):

 Final exam (35%): Sunday, March 10, 3:00 pm, location TBD
All time conflicts should be brought to the attention of your instructor as soon as you are aware of them. To ensure fairness, time conflicts will be resolved by offering the exam from 7 to 9 pm on the same day (provided you receive written permission from your instructor prior to the day of the exam).
Homework
Homework reinforces concepts and skills while challenging students to extend what they have learned to other types of problems. Because it is important for students to have this experience, instructors will not solve assigned homework problems during office hours before the due date. We will of course answer questions you may have in approaching problems that give you difficulty. It is therefore essential to begin homework sets early so that you may get help if difficulties do arise.
Written homework is assigned weekly and posted on the homework page. It is due each Tuesday. Please place your homework in the homework boxes outside of Kemeny 108 by 6:30 p.m. As all homework is posted well in advance, no late homework will be accepted. Homework typically covers course material through the previous Friday.
Homework grading policy: Because the goal of homework is to have students work through problems, homework grading is based on both effort and correctness based on the following 10 point scale: 85% or higher = 10; 8185% = 9; 7180% = 8; 6170% = 7; 5060% = 6; "reasonable effort" = 5; "little or no effort" = 0. Your lowest homework score will be dropped.
Please follow the homework submission guidelines.
Honor Principle
We will strictly enforce Dartmouth's Academic Honor Principle.
On Exams: Giving and/or receiving assistance during an examination violates the Academic Honor Principle.
On Homework: Collaboration is permitted and even encouraged, but it is a violation of the honor code for someone to provide the answers for you. However, assistance of any kind should be properly acknowledged.
