W. Keith Nicholson,

the rough plan for the course is to cover some subset of chapters 5-7 and 9-11 in nicholson, with the precise choice and order of topics to be made on the fly. we will begin at the start of chapter 5. the departmental syllabus for this course is here; we will surely deviate from it in places.

homework will be assigned throughout the week and due the following monday. please staple your assignments. late assignments will not be accepted, unless you have obtained written confirmation (over email) of an extension from me in advance. you are strongly encouraged to collaborate with each other on homework, but your assignments must be written up independently and in your own words. copying is strictly forbidden.

there will be an in-class midterm on wednesday, march 15.

if you have to miss the midterm for a documented, legitimate excuse, then the corresponding component of your final grade will be calculated by prorating your final exam score. in case of sickness, a doctor's note must be obtained on or promptly after the exam date. there will be no make-up exams.

friday, may 12, 9-noon

40% homework, 20% midterm, 40% final exam
