CALCULATOR
You will need a graphing calculator, like the TI83. See the math dept
link: Acceptable
Calculators
HOMEWORK: I expect that you carefully review on the textbook
what has been explained during the lectures. I strongly recommend that
you read material in advance
in order to ask clarifying questions at the
right time. Homework problems will be assigned to you at the end of
each
lecture. Evennumbered problems should be handed in for grading on the
following Monday. Your homework is THE MOST IMPORTANT PART OF YOUR
LEARNING
PROCESS. The purpose of the homework problems is to allow you to verify
your understanding, and work out some representative examples of what
you
will be asked to solve in class. Therefore, it is extremely important
that
you carefully work out the homework problems if you want to do well in
the class. Please, notice that MANY OF THE EXAMS AND QUIZ PROBLEMS WILL
BE either PICKED UP DIRECTLY FROM THE HOMEWORK PROBLEMS, or very
similar
to them.
 EXAMINATIONS: There will be between 4 and 8 Thursday
quizzes (about
15 min each) after completion of certain parts of the course. Questions
will come directly from the homework problems. There will be THREE
midterm
exams on: Tuesday, FEBRUARY 10; Wednesday, MARCH 17; Wednesday, APRIL
14. Exams will last for 2 hours, between 6:30 and 8:30 pm. The FINAL
EXAM
is on Friday, MAY 7 from 10:30 am to 12:30 pm (THEY WILL NOT BE IN
THE REGULAR CLASSROOM!)
These exams will consist of problems to be done in their entirety (no
multiple choice), and will be hand graded, with partial credit
being given when appropriate. A correct answer with no work
shown might receive no credit , if it is believed that the
answer could not have been figured out in your head.
GRADING: You will be allowed to drop the worst 2 homework
scores
(based on the persantage you got right). The homework average will
count
25% towards the final grade. The quizzes will count 20% towards the
final
grade. Each midterm exam will count 10% and the final exam will count
25%
towards the final grade. The final grade will be assigned according to
the following scheme:
A: 89100, B: 7588, C: 6374, D: 5162, F: 050.
For those taking the course Pass/Fail, Pass will be equivalent to a
grade D or better. It's possible that, at the end of the semester, the
instructor may decide that it's appropriate to use a slightly more
lenient
scale or to make other changes benefiting students. It's certain that
your
grade will not be lower than that predicted by the above table.
 MAKEUP EXAMS: No makeups exams will be given. Excused
absences
from any of these tests must be obtained from myself prior to the
examination.
Unexcused absence from an exam will result in a score of zero on that
exam.

 OFFICE HOURS: My office is in Cupples I, room 112 A.
Office hours
are Monday, Wednesday and Friday 12:3013:30. You can certainly talk to
me at other
times. If you want to reach me or schedule an appointment, please, talk
to me at the end of the class or contact me by email at: krishtal@math.wustl.edu.
If I'm unavailable for some reason, you contact your grader.
He will try to provide you with all you need.
