The math department publishes a rough course overview.

The first midterm will be Thursday, February 19th in class. The second will be on Thursday, April 9th in class. The final exam will be on Monday, May 11, 11:30-2:30 pm.

## 1. Course Policies

**Grading.** 85% exams (20% for each midterm, 45% for the
final), 10% quizzes, and 5% homework.

**Quizzes.** There will be a 20-minute quiz each Wednesday
except for exam weeks in section. There will be no makeup quizzes.
The two lowest scores will be dropped.

**Homework.** Homework is due each Monday in section (however
the first is due Wednesday, January 28). Late homework will not be
accepted. Grade yourselves on a 0-2 scale.

**E-mail.** I will not answer e-mails that explicitly ask how
to solve particular homework problems. There are no guarantees on
responding the night before an exam, however I will prioritize
administrative and quick math clarification questions.

## 2. How to study

**Step 1.** Read the book, go to lecture, section, and office
hours, solve examples. Check your understanding.

**Step 2.** Solve homework problems. If you get stuck, you did
not complete Step 1, so go back and figure out exactly what you
still need to understand.
