Requirements and grades:

The secret to doing well is to attend class and to read the book. You should read each section before we talk about it in class, then again after class, before doing the homework for the section. If you have any trouble understanding it, read it several times, first, quickly for an overall idea what the section is about, then in detail, working out the examples the book uses to make sure you know why each statement is true. Only after this should you start the homework. You may be pleasantly surprised how much easier the homework is with this sort of preparation. You will certainly understand the material and retain more of it, if you study in this way.

Special attention will be paid to the quality of the writing you turn in. Mathematics consists of logical relations between ideas, not just formulas. Understanding the logical relationships will enable you to find solutions to problems, and explaining them makes your work easier to understand for those who read it.

You will be expected to participate in class discussions in which we will work on problems and discuss them with classmates. Two to four homework assignments will be given each week, depending upon the number of sections in the book covered during the week. Questions about the homework can be answered at class time or during office hours.

Your grade will be determined by your three best in-class test scores (worth 100 points each), on your weekly worksheets (worth 100 points), and a comprehensive final exam (worth 200 points), for a total of 600 points possible.

3 Best in-class exams 300
Worksheets 100
Final 200
Total 600

Naturally, all work you turn in should be your own. The University has strict policies on intellectual honesty.

Policy on absences: Makeup exams will be given only in the event of documented emergencies.
