I will curve an exam score if absolutely necessary (e.g. the problems were legitimately too difficult or the exam was too long). The final grades will be assigned on the usual scale: 90--100 A, 80--90 B, 70--80 C, 60--70 D, below 60 Failing.

Notes from class, 04/17 Typo on second to last page; it should be (\phi_I)^\sigma = \phi_{\sigma^{-1}(I)}

LAS students who wish to drop the course should see the receptionist in the LAS office and ask to be direted to a COAR user, who will process the late drop without a grade of "W". Engineering students should be directed to the Engineering College Office, 206 Engineering Hall, for assistance with the late drop. Students in other colleges may need to petition their college office for this policy to be applied, but the math department would support it.
