Homework: Homework assignments for each section will be posted on the course website.
These assignments will not be graded, but you are STRONGLY ENCOURAGED to complete
them. The exams will consist of similar questions, so doing the homework assignments is
the best way to prepare for them.
Quizzes: There will be four take-home quizzes that you are required to do in groups of 2-4
students. These quizzes will be due during the last class meeting before each exam and will
consist mostly of proof questions. Each quiz is worth 25 points, for a total of 100 points.
Exams: There will be four exams given during normal class meetings (2/12, 3/24, 4/14,
5/5). Each exam is worth 50 points, for a total of 200 points. Makeup exams will only be
given in cases when I receive documented proof of an extreme hardship IN ADVANCE. If I
am not notified in advance, no makeup exam will be given.
Final Exam: There will be a cumulative final exam on THURSDAY, MAY 7, from 7:30
AM-10:15 AM. This exam is worth 100 points.
