Homework: There will be weekly homework assignments. As I get to know your backgrounds better, I'll try to individualize the assignments, so not everybody will get the same assignment.

Here are the assignments:

Homework Assignment 1 

Homework Assignment 2

Homework Assignment 3

Homework Assignment 4

Homework Assignment 5

Homework Assignment 6

Homework Assignment 7

Homework Assignment 8

               Participation                      50 points

               Total                             150 points

Final Exam: There will be no final, but we may use part of the final time slot for an additional class, in case we need to make up a class.

Departmental Grading Appeals Policy: Students who believe their academic evaluation has been prejudiced or capricious have recourse for appeals to (in order) the instructor, the departmental chair, the departmental appeals committee, and the college appeals committee.
