Canvas Page

I will use the Canvas page for inputting grades and collecting homework. Otherwise, expect to find all relevant course information on this page.

Grades

Homework will be assigned and collected at regular intervals

Final grades will only curved if I believe it is necessary. Grades will be calculated in the following way:
Homework20%
Midterm 120%
Midterm 220%
Final40%


Homework

You will be required to use LaTex to write up your homework. There are a few reasons for this. First of all, I think LaTex is a useful skill that everyone with a math degree should have. Also, LaTex makes it easier to rewrite parts of a proof, especially when you realized you missed a detail or decide something could be written more clearly. This will, hopefully, result in much better proofwriting skills. Finally, I would like to use Canvas to collect your assignments, which means they must be digital copies.
You are encouraged to work with others on the homework, but what you turn in must be your own work, representative of your understanding of the problem and its solution. Homework turned in late will be accepted until I've posted solutions or all on-time homeworks have been graded (whichever happens first (probably solutions being posted)).

Class Policies

There will be no make-up exams, except in extreme cases. Anyone caught cheating will receive a zero on whatever they were cheating on. Getting caught cheating a second time will result in failing the course.
