Exams 1-2 will be administered during the class time. No makeup exams are allowed for the exams. No calculators, books, or notes are permitted on any exam. You are required to bring a photo ID.

Homework

Problem sets will be posted on Blackboard approximately biweekly. The lowest homework score will be dropped. No late homework will be accepted. You may work together on homework but it must say on each student's paper that you worked together and on which problems. Please do not copy answers from the internet or use internet question and answer sites, which I will view as cheating.
