Ben Cooper has the final exams and the grade records.  We will not discuss grades by email -- you should see him in person during his office hours.

I have retired this year -- so I will not be teaching classes next year and I will not be at school on a regular basis.  I will, however,  be accessible.



Exam Schedule

    We will have  two midterm exams, and a final exam.  The midterms will be during the lecture hour (9:00-9:50) in the lecture room (Center 222). The final exam will be as in the schedule of classes.  The room for the final exam will be announced, but it is usually the lecture room.
    Blue books will be required unless you are notified otherwise.      

Midterm 1 Wednesday  May3        9:00-9:50
Midterm 2 Wednesday  May 24     9:00-9:50 CENTER 222
Final Exam Friday  June 16              8:00-11:00

                   The final exam will be "open book" -- which means the textbook (no notes).
                Remember to bring your text to the exam.
                You will not need a bluebook.

Grading Policy

Your grade is based on your exam scores and on your homework.  The exam scores will be counted in the following way:   The midterm scores will be weighted (your higher score will count 30% and the lower will count 20%) the final exam will count 50% .  You will receive 1 point added to your exam score for each "satisfactory" homework you turn in.
HOMEWORK:  In a course like this, homework is probably the most important part.  It is essential that you do homework.  On the other hand, homework is not an exam -- it is not a test of your mastery of the material.  It is an opportunity for you to try things on your own (at the point where you are learning them) and receive some feedback about your work.

         Under better circumstances, homework would be like a correspondence course -- and someone would provide you with detailed comments on your work.  This is particularly important when students are learning to do proofs.  Since so many students signed up for 103A you will probably not be getting such detailed comments.  I suggest that you work with others.  Show some of your proofs or solutions to friends, and discuss them.

          Your homework solutions are not being averaged in to your grade.  You will get the one point for making a serious effort at the problems.  Homework should represent your own work. If you discuss homework problems with friends you are on your honor to write up solutions on your own.
