<dt><strong>Assessment:</strong> The course grades will be

computed as follows:</dt>

<dd>30% Homework</dd>

<dd>20% First test</dd>

<dd>20% Second test</dd>

<dd>30% Take-Home Final exam</dd>

</dl>

<p><strong>Tests and Exams:</strong> There are no makeups for

missed tests.  You must take the final examination at the time

scheduled by the university; no final exams will be given

earlier.</p>

<p><strong> Homework: </strong> There will be two kinds of

homework: </p>

<ul>

<li><cite>Exercises</cite> give you a chance to practice and

refine your basic calculus skills.  They will not be

collected.</li>

There will be three graded homework due at regularly spaced dates to be annouced in class.

Each of them is worth 10% of the final garde.  </ul>

<p><strong>Written work:</strong> We write to communicate.  Please

bear this in mind as you complete assignments and take exams.

You must

explain your work in order to obtain full credit; an assertion is

student or professor.</p>

<p><strong>Help:</strong> Help is available if you have trouble

with homework or lecture material.  My office hours are a good

place to start.  Discussions with your classmates can also be very helpful

and are strongly encouraged. You may also ask the TA.
