Academic support:

- Office hours from both the instructor or the TAs are a first source of extra help
- Math help room (Krieger 213): open from Monday-Thursday 9am-9pm and Friday 9am-5pm

- Calculators are not
allowed in exams. You can use
calculators in HW.

- Attendance: Attendance at all lectures is required. If
you miss a lecture, it is your responsibility to catch up on
the topics that you missed.

- If a student is found responsible through the Office of
Student Conduct for academic dishonesty on a graded item in
this course, the student will receive a score of zero for that
assignment, and the final grade for the course will be further
reduced by one letter grade.

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.

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

Final : Tuesday Dec 13, 9-12 noon, Bloomberg 272, Review outline

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.

Homework:

Homework will be assigned after each lecture and will be collected before class. The following rules apply to homework:

- Homework is due at the beginning of class, stapled and
with name written at the top of the first page. Late homework will not be
accepted.

- Studying in groups are encouraged, but homework has to be
written down independently. Copying is not allowed.

- Write clearly and be organized. The grader might choose
not to grade your homework if it is too messy.

- To receive full credit for a solution, it is not enough to simply write down the correct answer. You must show all relevant work in an organized fashion.
- The lowest homework score will be dropped.
