Homework exercises will be assigned during each class and posted below, but they will not be collected.

There will be a quiz at the beginning of each and every class, mostly consisting of questions from the homework and statements of definitions/theorems. The four lowest scores will be dropped, and no make-up quizzes will ever be given.

When calculating your course grade there is one more rule: if your quiz score is an E then your course grade is an E; in this case your midterm and final exam scores will be ignored.

Of course, you are expected to follow the University’s Standards of Academic Integrity.
