Homeworks

A list of suggested homework is given on the main page of the course. Mondays, during the lecture, homework is assigned. It can be handed in and it will be graded by our TA YongZhong Xu. They are due the Friday following the assignment at 4:30 p.m.. Homework should be handed in at the office of our TA, Hill 508. No late homework can be accepted. Please, either hand them in earlier, send them by mail (mail address of TA), or ask somebody to hand them in for you. The outcome is part of the overall grade. Regularly, 4 exercises will be assigned. It is important to present how and why you got the result. To present only the result itself is completely insufficient.



Maple

Along with the course we offer a series of computational exercises using Maple, called Maple labs, prepared by Prof. Bumby . Technical details and the current versions of the Maple lab assignments are posted on the main page of the course. Date of assignment and due dates are shown in the syllabus of the course. The worked out answers should be handed in during the lecture on the due date. They will be corrected, graded, and returned in class. The outcome is part of the overall grade. Please try to download and to start working on the labs as early as possible. No late maple labs can be accepted. If you are not able to hand in the maple labs on the day they are due, please either ask somebody to hand in for you, send them by mail to the instructor or hand them in earlier in class or at the instructors office.

This lecture section has registered with the Maple Adoption Program. This is a special program that Maplesoft offers because the Maple laboratory projects are a required part of the course. One benefit of the program is that students in this section may purchase a copy of our Maple 9.5 Student Edition for the reduced price of $75.00 US (download only). You will need a Special Access Code that Prof. Bumby can give you.



Exams

There are two mid term exams and one final exam. The mid term exams are held in the usual class room during the usual lecture times. For exact dates see the syllabus. Please, check carefully the dates, because they are subject to changes. Please, recheck the dates. Exam problems are based on the assigned textbook homework and examples considered in class. There are no calculators allowed in the exams. Books or notes are not permitted. No complicated numerical computations will be necessary. The emphasis will be more on understanding than on excessive calculations and memorization of results.

The following sample exams are considered for reviewing and training. The actual exams question need not to be similar.



Grading

The course grades will be based on a ranking on a 500 point scale composed of the following items:

An effort will be made to respect any clustering of grades in assigning course grades.
