General policies:

Exams and quizzes:
     All exams are closed book and closed notes. No make up examination will be given. Excused absences from midterms will only be permitted with a letter from authorities such as the student's academic advisor, a doctor, or a police person etc. If an exam is missed with a valid excuse, the grade for that exam will be given based on the final exam. The grade for an unexcused exam will be zero. No excused absences are allowed from the final exam. 

The strength of the university depends on academic and personal integrity. In this course, everyone must be honest and truthful. Violations include cheating on exams, plagiarism, improper use of the internet and electronic devices, unauthorized collaboration, alteration of graded assignments, forgery and falsification, lying, facilitating academic dishonesty and unfair competition. Ignorance of these rules is not an excuse.

In this course, as in many math courses, working in groups to study particular problems and discussing theory is strongly encouraged.  Your ability to talk mathematics is of particular importance to your general understanding of mathematics. You can discuss with other students about how to approach the problem.  However, you must write up the solutions to the homework problems individually and separately. 

Academic support:
Special aid:
Students with disabilities or other special needs that require classroom accommodation or other arrangements must let the instructor know at the beginning of the semester.
