Grading Scheme: The grading in this course is as follows: There is no preset correlation between numerical grades and your final letter grade.  A letter grade (without + or -) will be included with the return of each exam and will cover all exams up to then.  Current grades will be posted on WebCT after every exam.  Sample exams will be posted on WebCT.  Late homework will be accepted but is subject to a penalty.  The penalty is minor for students who complete most homeworks on time, but is more severe for chronic abusers.

Office Hours: If you need to see me, please look for me during the office hours posted below, or please make an appointment. If there is no one in my office during the last half of the office hour, I will feel free to leave, so please arrive early. Office hours begin the second week of classes. Exam week office hours (if any) will be posted later.
