Lecture Notes. (Updated weekly. The exercises in the notes are meant for you to think about and are not part of the homework.)
Course Policies GradesBased on weekly homework. Your lowest homework score will be dropped and the remaining six will be averaged to calculate the final grade. Homework PolicyHomework problems will be assigned weekly and posted online. The problems assigned in a given week are due the following Monday at 3:30 PM in the Ma 1d dropbox. For privacy reasons, please staple a cover sheet to your assignments, meaning a sheet blank except for your name. Your score will be displayed behind the cover sheet when the homework is returned to you. You may work together on the problems, but you must write up your solutions individually. In your solutions, you may use results from class, from Apostol, or the results stated as problems already assigned. Be explicit about citations when using such results; e.g., state the theorem number or the exercise number. Late HomeworkYou can get one extension for one homework set, no questions asked, if requested before the deadline. In all other circumstances you have to provide a letter from the Dean or from the Health Center. Assignments

* You may use a computer or calculator while doing the homework, but may not refer to this as justification for your work. For example, "by Mathematica" is not an acceptable justification for deriving one equation from another. Also, since computers and calculators will not be allowed on the exams, it's best not to get too dependent on them. |
