Homework and quizzes

Weekly homework due at the beginning of class Thursday. The first homework will be due on Feb 2.

Late homework will not be accepted. We will drop the lowest two homework grades (or absences).


There will be two in-class prelims and a final exam. The schedule is on the Exams page.

No books or calculators will be allowed on the exams.

You may bring a one-sided letter size paper of notes to each prelim exam and a two-sided letter size paper of notes to the final.

We must have one week's advance notice of exam conflicts.

If you require special accommodation on exams, such as extended time or quiet time, you must obtain a Faculty Notification Letter from Student Disability Services and contact your recitation instructor two weeks before the exam to make the necessary arrangements.


Homework 20%, prelims 20% each, final 40%. Expected median course grade: B.

Academic integrity

You are encouraged to discuss homework problems with your classmates. Copying other people's solutions is not allowed however and will be penalized by the grader.
