of higher-dimensional space, differentiation, and integration.

**COURSE PLAN** : There will be unannounced short
quizzes on occasion, with open books,

papers, etc. These are intended to encourage you to keep
current. See this web page often

for a list of
current exercises. They are not to be submitted as
homework, but you should have

them prepared by the indicated
date. To accommodate the occasional
illness, the lowest two

quizzes
will be dropped. There will be no makeups for missing quizzes.

Extra credit will be given to those who
present solutions to selected
problems on the board.

Exams are “closed book”, but
you may bring your
calculator and a 3x5 formula card.

**ACADEMIC INTEGRITY: **You are responsible for making yourself
aware of
and

understanding the policies and procedures in the Undergraduate Catalog

that pertain to Academic Honesty. These policies include cheating,
fabrication, falsification

and forgery, multiple submission, plagiarism,
complicity and computer misuse. If there is

honesty prior to

the submission of an assignment or test.
