## Make-Up Policy

If you miss an exam for valid reasons, make sure you take a make up exam no later than a week after
the exam you missed. It is your responsibility to make sure this happens, you ought to remind us not we have to remind you.

## Grading Policy

Course grades will be determined from
student performance on weekly homework, exams and quizes.

** For those enrolled in MATH 267 ** There will be four exams:
three 50 minute in-class exams and a final exam. All exams will
be written by the instructor. The final exam will be given during the week of final exams.

** For those enrolled in MATH 266**, there will be four 50 minute in-class exams, but only two of those are midterms
and the final will consist of two parts. The fourth exam (the second part of the final exam) will also be taken during class time,
at a different location (room to be announced). After this fourth exam, around November 8th, those enrolled in MATH 266 will be dismissed.

** For everybody : ** The three in-class exams, which are
indicated on the tentative calendar, will be given during the hour
normally used for lecture. Each of the midterm exams will test only
the material covered since the previous exam. The final exam will be a cummulative exam. All of the exams will consist of
problems similar to the homework problems assigned throughout the
semester.

Homework will be assigned on a daily basis. The daily homework
assignments of a given week will be collected the Tuesday of the following week.

The Homework, Quizzes and Exams will be weighted as follows:
