 Three exams, 30% each (the final exam is not cumulative)
Makeup exams will only be given with a written medical excuse.

RECIPE FOR SUCCESS IN THIS CLASS: 
 Read the relevant textbook sections in advance
of the lecture. When reading, have pencil, paper,
calculator, ruler and graph paper handy and work out
the examples and 'Matched Problems' as you read.
The lecture material follows the textbook material
very closely. If you don't fully understand something
while reading the textbook before class, it will likely
become clearer during the lecture.
 Attempt at least some of the homework problems
in advance of the lecture.
 Do not miss class! One class during Winterim is
equivalent to one week during an ordinary semester.
Turn your brain on, be active and participate.
 Do all homework problems.
 Do at least some of the unassigned problems.
 Come to see me if you feel you don't understand
something.
