Class schedule
Homework
Homework will be due in your discussion section.
Collaboration on
the homework is encouraged, but students must write their
own solutions after consultation with classmates.
At the end of the course, your composite homework score will be
the sum of all but your two lowest scores, plus 0.5 times your
next-to-lowest score. In other words, we are dropping everyone's lowest
1 1/2 scores.

Grading
Course grades
will be based on a composite numerical score
that is intended to weight
the course components roughly as follows:
midterm exams 17% each, homework and quizzes
20%, final exam 46%.
As far as I can determine,
the last day to add or drop this course is
Friday, February 19, i.e., the day after the first midterm.
The last day to change your grading option should be Friday, April 1, i.e.,
the day after the second midterm.
Incomplete
grades will be assigned only to students for whom a documented
medical, personal or family emergency precludes completion of the course.
Students receiving such grades are required to have been doing work
of passing quality up to the intervention of the emergency.
You can deduce the
composite
grade distribution
for this course
for 2013 and 2014 from
schedulebuilder.
I calculated that the grade distribution was
39% A, 37% B, 18% C, 6% D/F, but you might want to check my work.
For 2015, the grades were distributed as follows:
38% A, 43% B, 15% C, 4% D/F.
