Homework
There will be weekly homework assignments due on Friday. They will be
posted on the course website and on bSpace at least one week prior to their
due date. They are to be turned in at the beginning of class on Friday,
or in my office by 2pm (note the earlier time if turning in to my office),
either in person or by sliding it under my door.
Late homework will not be accepted under any circumstance. However, your two
lowest homework grades will not be included in the final grade calculation.
Discussing
the problems with other students is encouraged, but each student must write
solutions on his/her own. Please acknowledge who you collaborated with by
writing their names on the top of your homework before turning it in. Copying
solutions, either from other students or from solutions obtained from the
internet or any other source, will be
considered cheating. A good general guideline is that talking about the problem
or explaining the ideas is acceptable, but reading another student's solution
(or having it read to you) is not.
Exams
There will be two midterm exams on Friday, February 21 and Monday,
April 7. Both will be in class. The final exam
is Wednesday, May 14 at 710pm.
In the case of a fire alarm during either of the midterms or the final exam,
leave your exams in the room, face down, before evacuating. Under no
circumstances should you take the exam with you.
Grading
The final grade will be computed as follows:
 Homework (20%)
 Midterm 1 (20%)
 Midterm 2 (20%)
 Final Exam (40%)
If the final exam score is higher than either midterm score, the lowest
midterm score will be replaced by the mean of the score and the final exam
score. This effectively means your lowest midterm score can count for 10% of
your grade and the final exam for 50% of your grade.
Special Accommodations
If you have a documented disability and require special accommodations of
any kind, please email me as soon as possible, and no later than Wednesday,
February 5.
