determined using the greater of:

** {20% HW, 30% Midterm, 50% Final} ** and

**{20% HW, 80% Final}**.

No individual letter grades will be given for midterm, or
final. You will get a letter grade for the course that is based on
your overall score.

**SCHEDULE:** The course schedule is available here. It will be very beneficial to you if
you read the indicated chapters **before** lecture.
Of course you should read them after lecture, and don't read the text like a
novel. Work through as many exercises as you can, and **at least** the
recommended ones. You can find the homework that is due, and the
recommended problems here.

**CALCULATOR:** You will need one that adds, subtracts, multiplies, divides, takes square roots, raises numbers to a power, and preferably also computes factorials. Statistical calculators are unnecessary.
