Office Hours: My office hours will be posted on the board outside
my office, and also on my web page. I will also generally be available
for a few minutes after class. Email me if you are unable to come to any
scheduled office hours and if I have time, we can schedule another appointment.
If you want to ensure that you can see me, do not wait until the last

Other Resources: Materials particular to this class,
including some exams from previous years will be put on the course web
page, linked off my home page, at various points this quarter. I recommend
that you make yourself acquainted with all of these resources early in
the term. Information relevant to this course will also be posted on the
course web page. If you are on the webpage, these resources are listed under, "study materials" to the left.
Homework: Homework will generally be assigned on Friday
of each week to be done by the beginning of class on the following Friday. Homework will not be collected or graded, but I will spend about 15-20 minutes at the beginning of class on Wednesdays and Fridays answering questions, and partial solutions are available on the assignment webpage, next to the given assignment. I will try to stay on schedule with the assignments as listed on the page, but if we get off schedule, then just do the problems for the relevant sections we have covered that week. Although homework is not collected, it is very important to understanding the material, so DO IT!!!
Quizzes: There will be seven twenty-minute quizzes on Mondays, as
indicated on the schedule. They will be on the problems covered in homework
due the previous Friday, plus any definitions or theorems covered before
the quiz. Missed quizzes may not be made up. If you will miss class for
some pre-scheduled event, let me know so we can make arrangements. If you are too sick to come to class, you must phone me before class and get a note from the nurse confirming your illness.
Exams: There will be one midterm exam given at 7:00 in
the evening on May 1. The exam should take under two hours to complete,
but you may take as much as three hours if you wish. I will give you a
room number for the midterm closer to the date. The final will be as scheduled
during Finals Week.
There will be no makeup exams except in cases of emergency or unavoidable
conflicts. Airplane tickets are not acceptable reasons for missing exams.
If you have an unavoidable conflict with one of the exam dates, let me
know as soon as possible to arrange a makeup exam. Except in cases of
sudden emergency, I will not arrange a makeup exam unless I know at least
a week in advance.
Tutoring: Some tutors are available for this course through
the Center for Teaching and Learning in the basement of Briggs Hall. Our
particular course tutors are and . They will

final (35%). The course will be graded on a standard 90-80-70 scale.
