Much of the learning in this course will be done outside the classroom, solving the exercises and homework problems. Discussion with your classmates on specific homework problems is encouraged provided that you clearly acknowledge collaborators on the last page of your assignment and that you independently write up your own solutions. Assignments may be submitted any time on or before the given due date in the box provided on the third floor of CAB. Please put your name on the first page of your assignment (it will be handed back directly to you during class).
On exams, you must work independently; questions of interpretation should be directed to the instructor. There will be two midterm examinations, each 50 minutes in length. Your midterm grade will be the maximum of your two midterm scores.
Material related to this course will be posted on the web page noted above. Additional material may be occasionally sent by email to your official U of A email address. If you do not regularly read your U of A email, it is your responsibility to forward your U of A email to your preferred email account. Instructions for doing this are available on the course web page.
Classroom interaction and questions are welcomed during the lectures!
