 Final Exam: 40%

 Exam 2 (80 minutes): 20%

Quizzes and exams are closed book and neither calculators nor notes
will be permitted. (Some formulae will be given on exams.)
The quiz grade will be determined by taking the top 10 quiz scores.
Quizzes are planned for the last ten minutes of lectures 2, 3, 4, 5,
6, 7, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 17, 18, 19, and 20. (That's 15 quizzes.)
A
quiz not taken receives a grade of zero.
It is assumed that students
can manage their time so as to be prepared and in attendance for at
least 10 quizzes so there will be no makeups.
Any exceptions will be
made only upon receipt of a note from the appropriate academic dean.
Exams 1 and 2 will count for 100 points each and the final exam will
count for 200 points.
Exams may be made up only in case of a valid
excuse. ("Not being ready" will not be considered a valid
excuse.) Excuses should be discussed with the instructor
before the exam takes place.

Calculators:
Students are encouraged to use graphing calculators,
Maple, and any other mathematical software packages available to
them in order to help them visualize (and hence understand) the
material of the course. However, quizzes and exams will be
written so as not to require use of a calculator, hence use of
calculators, etc. will not be permitted on quizzes and
exams.
