Homework
Homework will be assigned regularly and due Friday of each week by the
end of
class. 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 emergencies.
In addition, those
participating in Math 274 are required to
complete
additional problems on the homework of higher difficulty.
Grading Policy
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 and/or lecture
notes.
There will be no makeup exams. Those participating in Math 274 will be
required to
complete different/additional problems of higher difficulty on the
midterms/final exam.
