Homework Policy 

  • Optional problems will be assigned daily. They will not be collected but it is strongly recommended that you work through and thoroughly understand these probelms.
  • A short written assignment will be assigned each Friday. They will be due the next Monday, turned into homework boxes in Kemeny, and they will typically cover that week's material. So the first written assignment (available on the assignments page) covers the first three classes worth of material and is due on Monday of week 2 at the start of class.
  • 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 15%
Exam 1 25%
Exam 2 25%
Final Exam 35%
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 TAs for this course are Emma Hartman and James Ronan. Tutorial assistance for this course and help with your homework will be available on Sundays, Tuesdays and Thursdays 7-9pm in Kemeny 006.

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 Collis Center to register for support services.
