### Grading:

Exam 1 (80 minutes): 20\%

Exam 2 (80 minutes): 20\%

Quizzes, Workshops, and Computer Assignments: 30\%

Final exam: 30\%

### Exams and Quizzes:

Exam 1 will be given on Thursday, October 8 and Exam 2 on
Tuesday, November 17. Nine quizzes will be given in Friday recitation
sections.
Students who miss an 80 minute exam will be given a make-up only if they have
a valid excuse (``not being ready'' is not considered sufficient). They
should see me as soon as possible to schedule a make-up. The portion of the
grade for quizzes will be obtained by using the 7 best scores (of the 9
quizzes). Since not all quiz scores are included in the grade,
no make-up quizzes will be given.

### Homework:

Homework assignments for each section of the text are listed in
the homework handout sheet. This is meant to be a minimal set of homework
problems. After doing these problems, if you do not feel that you understand
the material, please come to the TA's or my office hours for help and also do
some of the other problems in the section. In addition to the text problems,
there will be assignments which use MAPLE, a very useful and powerful computer
program that can differentiate, integrate, do symbolic manipulation, perform
numerical calculations, and display graphics in two and three dimensions.
