Midterms: The first midterm will be on Tuesday February 21st in class and will cover chapters 7 and 8. The second midterm will be on Tuesday April 4th in class and will cover chapters 9 and 10. No books, notes, calculators, slide rules or scratch paper will be permitted at the exams. There will be no make-up exams.

Final Exam: The final exam will be held from 5-8pm on Wednesday May 17 and will cover the material from the entire course. There will be no make-up final exam. If you are unable to attend the final exam due to documented and unexpected circumstances beyond your control, and you have a C average on the previous coursework, an incomplete may be assigned.

Homework and Quizzes: There will be a weekly quiz given each Thursday in sections. There will be no make-up quizzes, but we will drop the lowest quiz score in computing your grade. Homework will be due each Thursday in sections. The homework will be graded "pass/fail".
