Assignments of homework (written HW and WebAssign HW) will be given online. It is the student's responsibility to get these assignments in the event of an absence from class. Show all your work. Homework will be graded. At the end of the semester we will adjust the WebAssign score to within 10% in such a way that missing or doing a poor job of WebAssign a few times will not affect your grade much.

Final Exam: May 4 from 10.30am - 1pm, location TBA - The final exam is cumulative and covers Chapters 9, 10, 11, 12 and 13 of the textbook. (For extra time and no distractions, ask your instructor.)

Course Grading:

Your grade will be determined from the graded written homework (10%), the WebAssign homework (15%), the three midterm exams (each exam 15%), the final exam (25%), and your class conduct score (5%). The lowest two written homework scores will be dropped. Students will obtain the full 5% for class conduct by default, but points may be deducted for repeatedly being late, repeatedly leaving early, excessive use of laptops or other electronics, sleeping or excessive yawning, very poor attendance, or obnoxious behavior. (All of this applies to recitations as well as lectures!)


Students With Disabilities: If you qualify for accommodations because of a disability, please submit to your professor a letter from Disability Services in a timely manner (for exam accommodations provide your letter at least one week prior to the exam) so that your needs can be addressed. Disability Services determines accommodations based on documented disabilities. Contact Disability Services at 303-492-8671 or by e-mail at

If you have a temporary medical condition or injury, see Temporary Medical Conditions: Injuries, Surgeries, and Illnesses guidelines under Quick Links at Disability Services website and discuss your needs with your professor.

Missed Exams: In order to complete the course, you need to take the final exam and at least two of the three midterms. If you miss one of the midterms, your missing midterm score will be replaced by your final score. (In the event that the final is canceled, your missing midterm score will be replaced by the average of your other two midterm scores.)

Religious Observances: Campus policy regarding religious observances requires that faculty make every effort to reasonably and fairly deal with all students who, because of religious obligations, have conflicts with scheduled exams, assignments or required attendance. In this class, you should notify me of any conflict at least two weeks in advance. See full details at campus policy regarding religious observances.

Student Classroom and Course-Related Behavior: Students and faculty each have responsibility for maintaining an appropriate learning environment. Students who fail to adhere to such behavioral standards may be subject to discipline. Faculty have the professional responsibility to treat all students with understanding, dignity and respect, to guide classroom discussion and to set reasonable limits on the manner in which they and their students express opinions. Professional courtesy and sensitivity are especially important with respect to individuals and topics dealing with differences of race, culture, religion, politics, sexual orientation, gender variance, and nationalities. Class rosters are provided to the instructor with the student's legal name. I will gladly honor your request to address you by an alternate name or gender pronoun. Please advise me of this preference early in the semester so that appropriate changes may be made to the records. For more information, see the policies on classroom behavior.

Honor Code: All students of the University of Colorado at Boulder are responsible for knowing and adhering to the academic integrity policy of this institution. Violations of this policy may include: cheating, plagiarism, aid of academic dishonesty, fabrication, lying, bribery, and threatening behavior. All incidents of academic misconduct shall be reported to the Honor Code Council (; 303-725-2273). Students who are found to be in violation of the academic integrity policy will be subject to both academic sanctions from the faculty member and non-academic sanctions (including but not limited to university probation, suspension, or expulsion). Additional information regarding the Honor Code policy can be found online and at the Honor Code Office.
