chapters.

In registering for this class you are implicitly
confirming your availability to take the final at the officially scheduled
time.

Homework: I will assign homework
on a weekly basis and it will be due at
the beginning of the following week, unless otherwise stipulated.
Selected problems (not all problems) will be graded. Homework must be
neatly done and stapled if more than one page long. Late or sloppy
homework will not be graded.

Grades: Course grades will be given based on tests and homework as
follows: Best midterm 30% + homework 20% + final exam 50%
or both midterms (40% each) + homework 20%.
The second option can only be selected by the student before the final, in
which case the final will not be taken. Students missing a midterm
automatically fall into the first option.
