HOMEWORK | |

Recommended homework problems are listed on the syllabus. Symbiotic student interactions are encouraged; parasitic interactions are discouraged. In this section, no homework will be collected. | |

QUIZZES | |

On five Fridays (3 November, 10 November, 17 November, 1 December and 8 December), a short (approximately fifteen-minute) quiz will be given at the beginning of class. Each quiz will be worth 25 points. On each quiz, at least half of the points will be taken verbatim from the recommended homework. | |

EXAMS | |

There will be two in-class exams, the Mid-Term on Tuesday, 21 November 00, and the Final on Monday evening, 18 December 98. In general, the exam will be graduated---the first question being easiest, the last, hardest. Each exam will be worth 100 points. | |

MAPLE
LABS | |

There will be four or five Maple labs.
Labs for section B08 meet 9am Wednesdays in SH 306.
There will be no labs the week of Thanksgiving Break.
Each Maple lab will be worth 25 points.
The format
of these reports is described on the web.
For this section,
your physical participation in Maple Labs is required.
You will not be given credit for a lab report if you did not attend the lab.
| |

GRADING | |

Of the five quizzes given, the four highest grades will
count. Hence the total value of the quizzes is 100 points. Also the four
highest Maple lab grades will count. So the total value of the Maple labs
is also 100 points. A grand total of 400 points is available in the
term. Grades are based on a floating scale; the scale is based on the
difficulty of the questions/assignments. The maximum number of points
required for an A is 360; for a B, 320; for a C, 280.
Final letter grades will be assigned based on the total number of points
earned, with some consideration given to consistency, progress in the
course, etc. | |

MISSED

MAPLE
LABS AND
