Class Attendance: Is required. If absent, it is incumbent upon the student to determine what has been missed as soon as possible. It is advisable to consult with the instructor.

Homework/Projects: Everyone is expected to master the syllabus homework assignments. These will not be graded, but many exam questions will be modeled on them, and it is guaranteed that at least one question on each exam will come directly from these problems. Students are strongly encouraged to work them and ask questions about them in and outside of class. There will be one group project for honors contractors, and several smaller individual homework/project assignments for everyone. Our computing platform is the CAS Maple which is available on all math computers. Students will be given an account in the Mathematics Computer Lab for computer related exercises and can obtain written lab instructions in the lab itself. Current information about the course will be available on the web (via the314 homepage or my home page). Using the web is strongly recommended for keeping track of due dates for homework collections and other current activities in the course.

Reading Assignment: Read the sections of the text as, or before, they are covered in class lectures. This is a standing assignment throughout the semester.

Grade: Three 90 minute exams at a time to be determined will be given and these will account for 100 points each. The final exam will count 150 points. All exams are closed book with calculators. The small homework/projects will account for 50 points (honors contractors will also have one group project worth an additional 50 points.) The final grade will be based on these 500 (550) points.
