- You are strongly suggested to attend the lectures. No

- The Discussion Sections, led by our AI, will be held

sections on 09/13, 09/27, 10/10 (Tuesday), 11/1, 11/15, 12/6.
You will have graded homework turned in
every Tuesday by 11 a.m. Late homework will not be
accepted! The homework collected is to be considered
a bare minimum of homework that you should do. You are
encouraged to do more problems in the exercieses sections.
Put the following information at the top
left corner of each page of your homework: full name,
student ID, and the due dates. Your turned in homework will
be graded on several factors including accuracy and
neatness. It is your responsibility to make sure the grader
can understand your work.
- Homework is an extremely important part of the course.
Whilst talking to other people about it is allowed, too often
this degenerates into one person solving the problem, and
other people copying them (often justified to themselves by
saying "I provide the ideas, X does the details" - but the
details are the key. If you can't translate the idea into a
real proof, you don't understand the material well enough). So
we introduce the following rules:
(a) You can only talk to someone else about a problem if you
have made a genuine effort to solve it yourself.
(b) You must write up the solutions on your own. Suspiciously
similar write-ups will receive 0 points.
- There will be two midterms and one final. The following is
- Exam Materials You should bring the following equipment to
- Your Washington U photo ID card
- Several pencils (with erasers)
- 3x5 note card with any helpful notes you care to make.
not bring the following with you to your exam:
- Notes other than the 3x5 card
- Scratch paper (there is plenty of room to write on the test
- Non-approved calculators
- Homework: 20%, Quiz: 10%, Mid1: 20%, Mid2: 20%, Final:
30%. The grades are assigned according the percentage you are
in the class.
- You are expected to take the exams at their
scheduled times. If you are away because of a
university sporting event or field trip, then you may
arrange for your coach or professor to administer the exam.
Excused absences may be granted in the case of illness or
bereavement. All excused absences must be granted before the
exam is taken. The final exam date cannot be changed for
reasons of traveling convenience.
- Letter grades will be given based on your overall score. The
cutoffs for the various letter grades will be no higher than
- In total, we will collect 11 homework. You are allowed to
drop the lowest homework score.
- The score of the final test can be used to replace the
lowest midterm exam score.
- You are NOT allowed
to use a graphing calculator on the exams. You will be
allowed to use a scientific calculator, (for example, a TI30X,
generally available for $13 or less). Be sure the
calculator you choose can handle logarithmic, exponential, and
trigonometric calculations. It would be wise to use this
calculator when you work your homework problems so you will be
comfortable with it when you take the exams.
