Your goal in this course, as in every course that you ever
take, should be mastery of the material. Anything less is
aspiring to mediocrity and doing yourself a disservice.
There are several things that I will expect from
you. One is to read the section in the text that we will be covering
before we meet.
Come to class ready to ask questions about what you do not yet know.
After class, re-read the text and your notes,
and do some exercises to complete your mastery of the material.
Also, ask questions in class, lots of them.
You will be expected to attend all class meetings; I do keep track of such
matters, but allow a few absences before penalties begin.
There will be two in-term exams,
each worth 20% of your final grade
and the final exam will be worth 40%.
The remaining 20% will be homework and attendance.
| First exam:
|| Tuesday, 10 or Thursday 12, October.
| Second exam:
|| 21 November.
| Final Exam:
|| Friday 8 December 12:30-14:30||
Homework will be collected on Thursdays. Current Assignment.
Late homeworks are not accepted.
It may not be possible to mark all problems assigned.
A few of the problems will be corrected and graded each week.
Nevertheless, for your own benefit, you will be required to hand in all
the assigned problems.
Your score will be based partially upon completing all assigned problems and partially
upon the marks obtained in the problems which are marked by the grader.
The two lowest homework scores will be dropped before
computing your grade.
While I do take attendance, your first few absences will not count.
However, I do not give make up exams.
If you have a valid reason (medical or family emergency) for missing an
exam, then I will instead give more weight to the final exam, or, on rare
occasions, give you an alternative exam
before the scheduled exam.
Missing an exam without a valid reason results in a score of zero for that
