4. Special Notes


A. WE WILL BE USING MY CLASS NOTES instead of a text. The notes can be purchased at the main department office for a "small" fee.

B. Determination of course grade: performance on the problem assignments. I will give you approximately 40 problems to solve this term.

Rules for problem solutions: Some of the problems are difficult and you are encouraged to work together with restrictions: You can show other people your solution on a blackboard; however, they may not copy it. AGAIN, you are not allowed to take notes of anyone elses solution. If you are using another source - book or person for help on a problem, I expect you to document it with the book and page numbers or the person's name.

C. Help
a. I am available for an hour or more after each class.
b. OFFICE: 331 Diefendorf: My office hours there are by appointment ONLY - I am rarely in that room.
