announcements made in class.

*Grading* —
Your grades will be posted regularly on D2L (http://learn.ou.edu).
It is your responsiblity to monitor your own grades for
accuracy.
Any mistake should be reported to me right away so it can be
remedied. Your final grade will be computed from homework
assignments and quizzes, three midterm exams, and a
comprehensive final exam, weighted as follows:

Homework/Quizzes | 20% | More details below. |

Three midterms | 50% | Lowest 10%, other two 20% each |

Final | 30% | Comprehensive |

Final letter grades will be given according to the following scale:

A | B | C | D | F |

100-90 | 89-75 | 74-60 | 59-45 | 44-0 |

*Homework* —
Homework will be assigned regularly, and due (usually) on
Mondays at 5pm. I will leave a box outside my office on
Monday morning, and you can drop off your homework there at
any time during the day. The grader will pick up the box
at or shortly after 5pm. If you get it in before the box is
picked up, then you're fine. Late homework will *not* be
accepted under any circumstances. I will drop your two lowest
homework scores.

You are allowed to work with each other in small groups. However, you will need to prepare individual written solutions.

Your homework must be neat and legible, with your full name and section number written clearly on the top. The pages must be stapled, and all spiral notebook fringes must be removed. Otherwise, the homework will not be accepted.

The assignments will be posted here (http://www.math.ou.edu/~forester/3333F15/homework.html).

*Quizzes* — I may give occasional short quizzes
in class; these will be announced.

*Exams* — There will be three exams during
the course, given during the regular lecture time. All exams
must be taken at the scheduled times, except in extraordinary
