Homework
Homework will be assigned regularly and due Monday of each week, with due times:
• 11am, if turning in at AP&M 5707
• 12pm, if turning in at AP&M basement drop box
• 2--3pm, if turning in at SDSC 105E or 106E
Late homework will not be accepted, however, the lowest homework grade will be
dropped when determining the final grade for the class. This should be reserved for
emergency purposes. In addition, those participating in Math 274 are required to
complete additional problems on the homework of higher difficulty.
Your grade will be based on the scores of the homework, two midterms, and one final
exam. It will be calculated from taking the maximum of the scores defined below:

Score #1 = (10% HW) + (25% Midterm) + (25% Midterm) + (40% Final)
Score #2 = (10% HW) + (25% Best Midterm) + (10% Other Midterm) + (55% Final)
Score #3 = Min of (HW,Best Midterm,Final)

Roughly half of the exams will be based on the homework assignments. There will be
no make-up exams. Those participating in Math 274 will be required to complete
additional problems of higher difficulty on the final exam.
