Reading is essential in this course. Read slowly
for understanding with pencil and paper in hand to
take notes and fill in missing steps .
Homework is also essential. The problems require
clear thinking and perseverance. Get Socratic
help from me or a classmate if you are really stuck , but DO NOT copy
someone else's work.
About onethird of the class time will be devoted to presentations of homework
problems by you
and your classmates. Homework will also be collected after these presentations .
Presentations and
written homework will count about 100 points in all. Late homework won't be
accepted. Arrange
for homework to be delivered, or emailed or faxed if necessary to make sure it
is turned in on time.
Doing homework and participating in class are the keys to success in this
course.

each and a comprehensive final exam worth 200

compute your grade (90,80,70,60 cutoffs or the
math department curve of about one quarter A’s and one quarter B’s if percentage
