Computation of grade: Your final score will be calculated by using the better score of the following two options:

Option 1: 20% homework + 20% midterm I + 20% midterm 2 + 40% Final

Option 2: 20% homework + 20% better of the two midterms + 60% Final

We will drop the worst two scores of your homework assignments.

Dates of exams: No make-up exams!

Midterm I: October 28,

Midterm II: November 18

Homework assignments Homework is to be turned in on Wednesdays by 5pm (unless noted otherwise). We have a dropbox in the basement of APM. Even though homework counts for comparatively little for the overall grade, it is extremely important that you do, or, at least, seriously try to do them. Most of the exam problems will be similar to homework or practice exam problems.

for 9/30: pages 11 and 12, problems 2, 5, 6, 11, 13, 16, 17, 19. Hints: For 16, you can use that if 3 divides b^2, then it also divides b. In 17(c) it should read: if b^2 < c (not r).

for 10/7: page 16: 1, 4, 6, 7, page 20-21: 7, 11, 12, 18

for 10/14: pages 32-34 1, 2, 6, 7, 15, 16, page 37: 4, 5.

for 10/21: page 42: 2, 5, 6, 9, page 46/47: 2, 4, 10, 12

for 11/4: page 57/58: 3, 5, 6, 9, 11 page 61/62: 3, 5, 7 page 65/66: 3, 4, 9

for 11/11: page 69: 5, 8, 10, 11 page 73-74: 3, 5, 7, 8, page 80-81: 2, 5, 7, 13 This homework assignment is larger than normal due to the up-coming midterm. I will have an extra office hour Tuesday 3-4 due to the holiday on Wednesday.

relevant for midterm: page 85: 3, 4, 5, 6

for 11/25: pages 93-95, problems 1, 4, 6, 8, 9, 12, 13 and 16.

for 12/2: page 101: 4, 6, 8, page108-110: 2 (this will depend on the values of a and b), 7, 10, 15, 19

Final The final will be cumulative. You will be allowed one cheat sheet, but no books or calculators. The material will cover the first four chapters of the book. However, it is unlikely that you will see any question from chapter 4.5 beyond, possibly, a true/false question. Also, if you can do the one review problem taken from Section 4.4. given below, you should be fine regarding that section.

For preparation, look at the problems of both midterms, in particular at the ones ypi did not do so well. The same applies to homework problems and problems we did in class. You can do more preparation by looking at problems in your book similar to homework problems. E.g. some review problems would be
