Late homework will NOT be accepted. There are no exceptions to this policy.
You can discuss the course material and homework with other students, but when writing solutions that you will turn in for credit, you must work alone, and the work you turn in must represent your own understanding of the material.
When computing your homework average at the end of the semester, your lowest homework score will be dropped.
The registrar determines the date and time of the final exam, and these cannot be changed. You must be available on Tuesday, May 13, 2-5pm, to take the final exam.
If you are absent from a midterm exam without prior approval, you will receive no credit; a make-up exam will be offered only under exceptional circumstances, such as an incapacitating illness or medical emergency.

While you may use a calculator for basic arithmetic operations on the homework, do so with care, and never as a substitute for understanding. You may not use linear algebra functions of advanced calculators or computer algebra systems to assist with any of your course work.
On rare occasions, part of a homework problem may explicitly call for the use of a calculator in order to give a numerical answer (e.g. "Using a calculator, determine the angle between these planes to the nearest degree..."). In such cases, you may leave your answer in a symbolic form (e.g. cos^{-1}(3/14)).
