All work must be completed and handed in to receive a passing grade for this course.
Your grade will be computed from your scores on the problem sets, the quizzes, the midterm exam, the final, and class participation. See the course calendar for the schedule of the quizzes, exams and problem sets. See the registrar's schedule for the time and location of the final exam.
The components have the following weights:
Problem Sets 40 % Quizzes 5 % Midterm Exam 20 % Final Exam 30 % Participation 5 %
Your lowest problem set score will be dropped before your grade is computed. A late or missing assignment will count as a zero. Midterm exams can be taken early only under unusual circumstances, and only by arranging a time with the instructor at least one week in advance of the date of the exam. The final exam can not be rescheduled.
The department has a policy of not giving final exams early, regardless of the reason. Recently, many math finals have been scheduled on the last day of exams and you should make travel plans accordingly. Do not purchase (or let your parents purchase) airline tickets before you know your exam schedule, as flight plans are not an acceptable reason to reschedule the final.
