Practice Problems (Homework): The practise problems consists of the list of problems found on the page titled Suggested Homework Problems. You are expected to work these problems outside of class.

Make-up Midterm Exams: Make-up midterm exams will be given to students with legitimate excuses such as verified illness, University sponsored events, etc. Written documentation is required.

The course records will be kept in a numerical system. The letter grades, ``A to F'' will only be assigned to the final exam, and of course, the course grade. The course grade is weighted as follows:

The sum of the 8 homework assignments counts for 15%.

Each midterm counts for 12.5% (or 50% total).

The final exam counts for 35% of the final grade.

The final letter grade is assigned according to the Mathematics Department's grading policy for Math 1271, which applies to all sections.
