Homework and quizzes
Homework is assigned for each Tuesday/Thursday lecture, see the
syllabus. Homework from a Tuesday lecture is due in the discussion
section on Friday, three days later. Homework from a Thursday lecture
is due in section on the following Monday. You can check your answers
at the back of the book (if you get the wrong answer, try again!) but
you need to turn in solutions, not just answers. Each assignment will
be given a pass/fail grade based on completeness.
There will be a weekly quiz each Wednesday in discussion section,
except for the first week and the weeks of the midterms.
There will be two midterms, on Thursday October 2 and on Thursday
November 13. The final exam is on Thursday December 18. Calculators
and notes will NOT be allowed for the exams.
If you miss Midterm #1, then Midterm #2 will count for 40% of your
grade. If you take Midterm #1 but miss Midterm #2, then the final
will count for 60% of your grade. If you take neither Midterm #1 or
Midterm #2, you will fail the course.
- Homework and quizzes: 20%
- Midterms #1 and #2: 20% each
- Final exam: 40%
More details about the course will be posted here later...
