Class Meeting Time: MW 02:50 PM-04:05 PM West Duke
Math 32 Information center
Grading: There will be four midterm exams and a final exam. The final exam will be a common exam with other Math 32 sections. The final exam will make up 30% of the grade. The midterm exams will count towards 65% of the grade. Homework assignments will make up 5% of the grade.
The dates for the exam are:
Handouts on series
Practice problems on Series
Homework: Homework problems will be assigned in class after every lesson and you will be given (typically) two days to finish the homework problems. The deadline for each homework will be announced in the class and will also be posted on the homework web page . You are expected to do all the assigned homework problems, however only selected problems will be graded in detail. Late homework will not be accepted. Each homework will be graded for 10 points and the lowest two scores will be dropped. Each class will begin with discussion of homework problems for the week, prompted by your questions. So please come prepared for the class.
Attendance and Class Participation: The material covered in the course is fairly difficult. So your presence during each class is strongly encouraged. If you miss a class for some reason, please do read the relevant material from the book before you come to the class the next day. Please feel free to ask any questions (however simple or trivial it might seem to you) during the class. There might be others in the class who have the same questions. Class participation will be taken in to account while deciding the final grades.
Do not hesitate to contact me if you have questions or problems relating
any aspect of this course, or just to discuss the material covered in class
or the text. I hope that you will have a productive semester.
