**Attendance**: Attendance **and participation**
in
lecture and in discussion section is mandatory.
**Homework and exams**: There will be weekly
problem
sets, listed in http://www.ma.utexas.edu/users/sadun/S08/427K/hwk.html.
These will be collected every Thursday in discussion section.
**Exams:** There will be three in-class midterm
exams, on February 6, March 7, and April 30, plus a final exam.
These exams will all be closed book. However, each student will be allowed to
bring a single letter-sized ``crib sheet'' (2-sided) to each midterm,
and 2 crib sheets to the final. These notes must be __HANDWRITTEN
ORIGINALS
- NO XEROXING ALLOWED__. Calculators are __NOT__ allowed on the
exams unless I specifically say otherwise.
**Grading:** Each midterm counts 20%. The final
exam counts 40%. The homework counts 20%.
At the end of the term I will drop your lowest 20%.
The final grade distribution is based on the same standards as for
a regular section of M427K. Since you are honor students, that
__should__ mean that most students will get A's.
**Honor system:** There will be a vote on
whether to govern the class by the honor system.
**Disabilities: **The University of Texas at
Austin provides
upon request appropriate academic accommodations for qualified students
with disabilities. For more information, contact the Office of the Dean
