usually be graded on an attempted/not attempted basis.

(scaled to a 100-pt basis), quizzes (scaled to a 50-pt basis), three
in-class exams (up to 300 pts, 100 pts each), and a final exam (up

Collaboration: You may
work together on homework and written assigments, but not quizzes or
exams. If you do work together, or if you receive assistance
from someone else, please say so on your paper (e.g., "I worked with
David Vogan on problems 5 and 7, and with Cathleen Morawetz on
problems 10 and 15."). Each person is responsible for writing
up his/her own version of the solution.
Accommodation for Disabilities:
a documented disability (e.g., physical, learning, psychiatric,
vision, hearing, etc.) who needs to arrange reasonable
accommodations must contact Disability Services for Students at

determination must be made by that office before any accommodations
are provided by the instructor.
