While much of the material we will cover is in this book, some isn't. You are expected to come to class and take your own notes.
Homework constitutes 30% of the grade.
The midterm exam (closed book) constitutes 30% of the grade.
The final exam constitutes 40% of the grade.
Midterm and final exam:
will be closed-book (one 3" x 5" card of notes allowed).
Class policy is: PLEASE SOLVE THE PROBLEMS ON YOUR OWN. If the problems seem too hard, something's wrong - come and talk to me.
Please try to write out complete arguments, using full sentences in a way that we can read them.
