Grade Recording Errors:  Keep all of your returned homework and exams. If there is any mistake in the recording of your scores, you will need the original assignment/exam in order for us to make a change.

Homework:  There will be regular homework assignments posted in TritonEd. Late homework assignments will not be accepted. Accommodations will be made on homework only under extraordinary circumstances. Please understand that accepting late work in less extreme cases is unfair to other students.

Exams:  There will be two 50-minute midterm exams (given in class) and a three hour final exam. See the course calendar for exact dates. Bring your student ID and pens/pencils with which to write. No books or notes are allowed. You may not use a calculator or other electronic device. Make sure to justify your answers (credit will not be given for "inspired" answers). Remember that part of each problem is to set it up and to arrive at the answer by a progression of logical steps. Write legibly and put your name and section number on your exam.

Make-up Exams:  Make-up exams will not be given. However, if you miss a midterm exam because of extraordinary circumstances, such as a serious illness or family emergency, and document the circumstances, then you may substitute your final exam score for the missed exam.

Final Exam:  It is your responsibility to ensure that you do not have a schedule conflict involving the final examination. You should not enroll in this class if you cannot sit for the final examination at its scheduled time.

Note: No student is allowed to take an exam early. If a student is entitled to accommodation, it will only be offered after the scheduled exam time and during normal Mathematics Department business hours (8:00 am to 4:30 pm).
