Important dates:

General policy: There will be two in-class hour tests (midterms) and a final exam, as well as weekly homework. You should feel free (encouraged!) to work on homework together, but writeups must be independent. The material for the hour-tests will be theorems, definitions and proofs that I did in class, any assigned reading, and questions similar to those on the homework sheets. For the determination of the final grade, the weighting will be: 50% on the final, 20% on each hour test, and 10% on the homework. Late homework will receive a grade of zero no matter what the reason, but the two lowest scoring homeworks for each student will be discarded.

It is the policy of the Department of Mathematics that the following rules apply to final exams in all undergraduate mathematics courses:

  1. The final exam must occur at the time and place designated on the College Final Exam Schedule. In particular, no final examinations may be given during the tenth week of the quarter, except in the case of graduating seniors.
  2. Instructors are not permitted to excuse students from the scheduled time of the final exam except in the case of an incomplete.

Homework: This will be posted weekly, and due each Friday at noon in the pigeonhole in Eckhart basement (or in class).

All problem numbers refer to Spivak, 4th edition, unless otherwise stated. Be careful, as the 3rd edition chapter and problem numbers differ! Note that for some multi-part problems you will want to use, say, the result of part (ii) to prove part (vii); in that case, you should include a solution of part (ii) in your write-up even if the homework only asks for part (vii). You should feel free to use results from class (but state what you are using), unless the question says something like `prove from the definition that...' in which case you have to work straight from the definition.
