On the tests and exam, you may not use any printed or written materials, or any electronic device.

Make up tests will be given only if you present written evidence, as soon as possible, that you did (or will have to) miss the test or exam for a legitimate reason, e.g. illness or family emergency. Travel and leisure plans are never a legitimate reason. Late homework will be accepted only if you get an extension from me.

There is no formula fixed in advance for turning your numerical score into a letter grade. But after each test I will indicate approximate grade ranges, so that you have some idea of how you are doing.

Try attending the collaborative homework sessions on Mondays.
Take seriously the handout of advice on Math 347. Act on that advice.
Go over your HW the day you get it back, debriefing on both your successes and your mistakes. Be happy with the successes, and learn from the mistakes.
Let me know when you don't understand something! Only by first admitting ignorance can we progress to enlightenment.
Your comments, questions and suggestions will be welcome throughout the semester. Good luck, and "work early, work often".
