Requirements. Good knowledge of the material covered in Math 165 and 166.

Schedule. The class meets every Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, and Friday from 12:10pm to 1:00pm.

Calculators. Calculators are permitted in exams.

Course Syllabus: A tentative course plan, which possibly will be adjusted during the class performance.

Homework Assignments You should work on homework problems although we don't collect them. If possible we also strongly suggest you work out extra problems from the Exercises. You will definitely get benifits from doing that, which will be reflected on your scores of exams.

Exams. Four exams: Exams 1, 2, 3, and the final correspond resp. to 25%, 25%, 20%, and 30% of the course score. If you cannot take an exam at the scheduled time for a legitimate reason, you need to contact us well in advance to arrange for a make-up exam. A doctor’s certificate is necessary for a medical excuse.

Grading. Approximate grade lines for letter grades: 85% for A-, 70% for B-, 55% for C-, and 45% for D-.

Sale of Lecture Notes. Section 4.2.22 of the student disciplinary code provides that class presentations are owned by the presenter. The sale of lecture notes without permission of the instructor is prohibited, and violation of this rule is academic misconduct. You are specifically advised that permission to sell lecture notes in this class is NOT given, and you are therefore prohibited from doing so. While we have no objection to occasional sharing of notes with someone who could not attend an individual lecture (as long as no fee is involved), we also do NOT give permission to engage in mass distribution (for example, through internet posting) of any lecture notes.

Cell Phones, Computers, etc … Cell phones, Computers, and other digital equipments must be turned off before Class begins and must remain off til the end of the session.

Policy update. The instructors reserve the right to change the content of this policy statement at any time during the semester.
