Course hours and location:
Monday - Wednesday - Friday, 11:00-11:50 AM in MTH 1308.
Office hours: Monday 1:20-3:10 in MTH 2113.
Midterms: There will be three midterms each taking place during
regular class hours. The dates are:
1st midterm: Friday September 29th.
2nd midterm: Friday October 27th.
3rd midterm: Friday December 1st.
The midterms and final exam will consist of exercises resembling the homework exercises. So doing exercises equals good exam preparation.
To be excused from a midterm you will need to provide a valid excuse and, in case of illness, a letter from the doctor to this effect. You will not have the
chance to make up an exam, so if you are excused from a midterm your
midterm grade will be the average of your other
midterms. It is entirely your responsibility to be in time for an exam.
Final exam: Friday December 15th, 8:00-10:00 AM.
Your grade will be a weighted average of your homework, midterm and final scores calculated as follows:
Homework: 25 %
Midterms: 45 %
Final: 30 %
