    Academic Honesty

    All exams are closed book and closed notes. All students are expected to follow the UCD Code of Academic Conduct during all exams. If you are suspected of cheating, you may receive a zero on your exam and/or be referred to Student Judicial Affairs.


    Please turn your cell phone to vibrate or silent.  Do not answer your cell phone or text during class.  Do not talk during class.  If you are too disruptive in class (excessive talking, repeatedly leaving the class to answer your phone, etc.), I may ask you to leave the class.


    There is one midterm and one final. Exams cannot be made-up except for family or health emergencies with documentation.

    Midterm - July 15, 2013
    Final - August 2, 2013



    ALL work must be shown in order to receive credit. Due to time constraints, only a few select problems will be graded. Messy or illegible homework will not be graded. Late homework is NOT accepted. The two lowest homework scores will be dropped.


    Check SmartSite for homework assignments. I will also send out email notifications.

    Homework is due every Monday. I assign each homework in the following manner: For each of MWF, I add problems from the sections I covered on that day, so all the problems on the homework will have been assigned by Friday. This means it's best for you to do the homework in stages: first Monday problems, then Wednesday problems, and finally Friday problems.
