You are encouraged to study together and sample exams will be provided by the Instructor as a
learning resource; topics on the sample midterm are not guaranteed to be on the actual exam
and vice versa. All student homework and submitted examinations are expected to be the
product of individual effort unless otherwise specified. This means that your submissions are expected to be in your own words and the product of
your own effort and any detected copying will be considered plagiarism unless appropriate
citations are given. Students are cautioned that much of the material available from
Internet searches is of dubious quality in this area. Examinations will be take-home
and open-book. All e-mail submission of homework and exams will be acknowledged by the
instructor soon after receipt. E-mail submission must occur prior to the
due date or a grading penalty will be assessed. Physical submission may be done in
class, or to the instructor by appointment.
This offering will not be using the blackboard system.
