Schedule and Homework


Written assignments will be assigned weekly. They will be due each Wednesday in class, 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.

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.

Basic Information

Your grade will be assessed according the following rubric:

Homework 20%
Mid Term
Final exam 40%

The Honor Principle

On Exams: Students may not give or receive assistance of any kind on an exam from any person except for the instructor or someone explicitly designated by the instructor to answer questions about the exam.

On Homework: Collaboration and discussion is encouraged, and you may discuss problems with instructors, tutors, and fellow students, and use notes, books, calculators, and computing devices. However, each student is to complete his or her assignments individually and independently.

Students with Disabilities

Students with disabilities enrolled in this course and who may need disability-related classroom accommodations are encouraged to make an appointment to see your instructor before the end of the second week of the term. All discussions will remain confidential, although the Student Accessibility Services office may be consulted to discuss appropriate implementation of any accommodation requested. As a first step, if students have questions about whether they qualify to receive accommodations, they should contact the Student Accessibility Service office.

Religious Observance

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 the instructor before the end of the second week of the term to discuss appropriate accommodations.
