Homework Policy 

  • On Wednsedays, we will assign homeworks that require a full understanding of the material covered in the week. The deadline is on the next Wednesday. Solutions will be posted after the deadline.
  • We will assign practice problems every lecture day. They are not collected, but the material will be tested on Quiz Friday.
  • Homeworks and quizes will be graded. The lowest score will be dropped.
  • 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 computed in two ways and the higher of the two scores will be used.

Quiz 5% 5%
Written homework 15% 15%
Exam 1 25% 20%
Exam 2 25% 20%
Final Exam 30% 40%

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 contact 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.

Cooperation on homework is permitted and encouraged, but if you work together, try not take any paper away with you. In other words, you can share your thoughts (say on a blackboard), but try to walk away with only your understanding. In particular, you must write the solution up individually, in your own words. This applies to working with tutors as well: students are welcome to take notes when working with tutors on general principles and techniques and on other example problems, but must work on the assigned homework problems on their own. Please acknowledge any collaborators at the beginning of each assignment.

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. Plagiarism, collusion, or other violations of the Academic Honor Principle will be referred to the Committee on Standards.


The TA for this course is Dylan Green. Tutorial assistance for this course and help with your homework will be available on Sundays, Tuesdays and Thursdays 7-9pm in Kemeny 004.

Special Considerations


Students with disabilities who may need disability-related academic adjustments and services for this course are encouraged to see the instructor privately as early in the term as possible. Students requiring disability-related academic adjustments and services must consult the Student Accessibility Services 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 SAS letterhead to their professor. As a first step, if students have questions about whether they qualify to receive academic adjustments and services, they should contact the SAS office. All inquiries and discussions will remain confidential.

Mental Health

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 , Counseling and Human Development , and Student Wellness Center .
