Homework: Homework, as specified by our syllabus, will not be collected. Homework problems, however, will be candidates for “short answer” problems on both the midterm and final exams. The review days are the perfect days to ask questions about these problems; we can also discuss them during my office hours.

Problem Sets: There will be five (5) take-home problem sets. They will be due on the days designated by our course calendar.  Each set will consist of between five and eight problems.

Exams:  There will be two (2) exams, a Midterm and a Final.  Exams will request definitions, examples, short answers, and proofs, all of which will be specified at least one week in advance.  There will be a true-false section.  Homework problems will be represented in the short answer section. The Midterm will be offered on Monday March 8 during our regular class time.  The Final will be offered on the day designated by the university exam schedule: Monday May 3, 10am – 12pm.
