 General
 The course is divided into three units, with an exam marking the conclusion of each.
 Paper homework will be collected regularly at the end of class. Assignments and their due dates are subject to change and should be checked daily.
 Quizzes may be given without advance notice, but will usually be announced at least one class day in advance (often they will cover the reading for that day).
 Class attendance is an important component of success in the course! If a student is unable to attend class due to illness or a medical/family emergency, he/she should contact the instructor immediately to arrange for an excused absence.
 Participation and attendance is strongly encouraged! This means you should:
 ask/answer questions
 make contributions to group work
 politely draws attention to and/or corrects mistakes
 go to the board to work on problems as requested by the instructor
 come to class and stay awake
 Homework Format
 A student's name should appear in the top right corner of each page of his/her work.
 Each student is reponsible for ensuring no pages will detach from their homework. Any unidentifyable pages will not be graded.
 Please write legibly in order to ensure accurate grading!
 Expectations
 Late homework/quizzes will not be accepted.
 Rare exceptions may be made only if the student has contacted the instructor in advance to make other arrangements.
