Assignments and Grades
There will be a weekly homework assignment, due at 4pm each Monday. The assignment can either be handed in in class or in the marked envelope by the door of Room 205, Natural Sciences. The questions to be handed in will be announced in class, or can be found by following the assignments link on the left. The assignments contribute 40% of your grade.
Also, a list of practice problems will be available online via this homepage. These questions do not need to be handed in, but should be used to test your own understanding of the material (full solutions to most of these problems will be available on reserve in the library).
There will be two quizzes; expect them around Weeks 6 and 12. Your better quiz contributes 20% to your grade. There will be a three hour final exam during exam days. This contributes 40% to your grade.
Attendance, class participation and prompt submission of homework are expected. Your performance in these areas will influence your final result by up to one letter grade.
You are expected to be aware of the college's policy on academic integrity
and to abide by it. Please come and talk to me if anything is unclear.
If you have a medical condition or disability that I (as your instructor) should be
aware of please contact Megan M. Littlehales in the Health Center, who will in turn
This course for four credits, which means that you should be
expecting to spend in the region of twelve hours each week (including class time)
working on it.
