The library has a link to an electronic copy.
I plan to cover Chapters 1 and 3 of the text plus additional material on
continuity and compactness.
Homework: Homework problems are to be assigned
once a week. They are due the following week on Moodle,
usually on Mondays. Late homework submissions will lose
points. Once solutions are posted, no late homework will be accepted.
Quizzes: will usually be on Fridays.
Attendance: of lectures/discussions is expected.
Exams: There will be two midterms and a final.
The midterms will take place on
March 03 and April 16 (the dates are
not likely to change).
The final, according to the non-combined final
examination schedule is to take place on
1:30-4:30 p.m., Thursday, May 13
Requests for a make-up quizzes or exams require a serious
documentation and are (almost) never granted. Please plan
accordingly. I will drop the lowest homework and quiz scores.
Grade: The formula for the course grade is roughly
The formula is here to give you a sense of how you are doing in
class. This said, I strongly recommend studying for the final no
matter how well you are doing on the midterms and the homeworks. You
have to pass the final to pass the course.
final exam = 35 %
2 midterms at 20 % each = 40%
homework, quizzes = 25%
