Prerequisite: Math 401/501.

Grades: The final grade will be determined by homework (25%), two midterms( 50%) and a final exam (25%). 


Homework:  Homework is due every Thursday. There will be one HW  weekly. You can work together on the homework, but you do need to write up your own solutions in your own words. To help the grader, please write your solutions up neatly and clearly (no points for work that the reader cannot follow- this is true for exams), and staple the sheets.   The lowest homework grades will be dropped. Please no late homework


Missed Exams:  Make-up exams can be arranged for exams missed with a VALID excuse (illness, family emergency, active participation in scholarly or athletic activities), and ONLY if prior notice is given. 


Disability Statement: We will accommodate students with documented disabilities. During the first two weeks of the semester, those students should inform the instructor of their particular needs and they should also contact Accessibility Services in Mesa Vista Hall, Room 2021, phone 277-3506.  In addition, they should see CATS- Counseling and Therapy Services; Student Health Center (277-4537). (They can help if you suffer from exam anxiety).
