Course Objectives
Exam Policy Students are to bring calculators, pencils or pens, and paper to each exam. Grading will based on the progress towards the final answer, and the demonstration of understanding of the concept that is being tested, therefore, work must be shown in detail. Any student who cannot make it to an exam may elect to take the exam up to two days before the exam is scheduled. If all homework is completed and no more than three homework assignments are counted late, then the midterm with the lowest score will be dropped. Homework Policy Homework is due each day at 5:00 PM. Homework that is turned in within one week of the due date will be counted as half credit. Homework may be turned later than one week after the due date, but points will not be awarded. Extra Credit Any student who has turned in every homework assignment may elect to work on an extra credit assignment or project that will count as additional points towards either a midterm or the final. Project The project involves investigating an application of vector calculus. The writeup of the project must be more than two pages (typed). You may write any equation by hand. You are encouraged to have Maple assist you in the project. You are also encouraged to work on the project in coordination with a nonmath course that you are currently taking. You may work on the project in groups and if you choose to turn in a group project, the write up should be more than 1 + n pages where n is the number of individuals in your group. Additional guidance will be provided later in the quarter. Learning Disabilities If you have a learning disability, be sure to discuss it with Larry. Learning disabilities will be accommodated.
