There will be a weekly homework assignment, which are posted in advance here. They will be due on Tuesdays, to be turned in during your section. To facilitate fair, accurate, and timely homework grading, I will not accept late homework except in extreme cases.

Find homework solutions here.


There will be two midterm exams and a final. The midterms will be on February 28th and April 4th at 5:30 PM. If you cannot make either of these times, contact me as soon as possible to make arrangements.

If your TA is Dan Rosendorf, Yun Su, or Andrea Medini, go to Van Vleck B102 for the midterms.
If your TA is Keith Dsouza or Ting-Ting Nan, go to Van Vleck B130 for the midterms.

Use of calculators will not be allowed for quizzes or exams. You must bring a valid UW Photo ID to all exams.
If you are eligible for special consideration on exams, please let me know as soon as possible, so that I can ensure that your needs are accommodated.
Note that the library has exams from previous years.

Exam 1
A curve for this exam is as follows:
A >=70; B >=55; C >=39; D>=32; F <32

Exam 2
A curve for this exam is as follows:
A >=73; B >=56; C >=41; D>=30; F <30


Don't let your questions go unanswered or your confusion unresolved. There are several resources available when you want some help outside of lecture and discussion: (All of this information, and more, can be found at the Getting help in your math class page.)


There will be homeworks collected once a week, quizzes, two midterms, and a final. The grade breakdown will be: 20% section grade (including quizzes and homeworks), 20% each midterm, 40% final.
Section grades will be adjusted at the end of the semester, so that even if your TA grades harder than another TA, that will not adversely effect your grade.
