General policies:
Ethics:
The strength of the university depends on academic and personal integrity. In this course, everyone must be honest and truthful. Violations include cheating on exams, plagiarism, reuse of assignments without permission, improper use of the internet and electronic devices, unauthorized collaboration, alteration of graded assignments, forgery and falsification, lying, facilitating academic dishonesty and unfair competition. Ignorance of these rules is not an excuse.
For more information see the guide on "Academic Ethics for Undergraduates" and the Ethics board website (http://ethics.jhu.edu) for more information.


In this course, as in many math courses, working in groups to study particular problems and discussing theory is strongly encouraged.  Your ability to talk mathematics is of particular importance to your general understanding of mathematics. You can discuss with other students about how to approach the problem.  However, you must write up the solutions to the homework problems individually and separately.  If there is any question as to what this statement means, please see the instructor or the TAs.

Exams:
 
      Midterm 1:  Friday Oct 7, 10-10:50AM, in class, Review outlineMidterm 1, Solution

     No make up examination will be given. This is department policy. Excused absences from midterms will only be permitted with a letter from the Academic Advising Office. No excused absences are allowed from the final exam. If an exam is missed with valid excuse, the grade for that exam will be given based on the final exam. The grade for an unexcused exam will be zero.

Grading:
     Grading will be based on homework, Midterm 1, Midterm 2 and final
     Homework: 15%    Midterm 1: 20%       Midterm 2: 20%      Final: 45%
     The course grade will be determined by an absolute scale with a slight modification using the normal distribution curve if appropriate.
