Notes:

  • You may need a sientific calculator (suggested: TI-36X Pro)

  • I'll be assigning homeworks. The homeworks are graded. All homeworks have the due date and must be submitted by the due date. Late homeworks are not accepted.

  • All homeworks must be done on your own. No copying.

  • Several of the worst homeworks will be dropped.

  • Before the midterm and final exams we will have reviews.

  • Please note that there will be no extra assignments in order to raise you grade.

  • Attendance:

    If you are more than 30 minutes late to class, you are considered to be absent.

    It is the policy of this class, that if If you get six inexcusable absences (without a genuine and documented reason) you automatically get F as a course grade.

    If you miss a class, it is your responsibility to get the material we covered in class and the HW assignment in order to prepare for the next class and submit the homework in time
