### Material and Schedule

We'll basically follow the schedule found here.

I will compute your grade as the maximum of the following two options:

They won't be collected, but I STRONGLY encourage you to keep up with them because...

### Quizzes

Most discussion sections will begin with a 10-15 minute quiz which consists of problems taken DIRECTLY from the assigned homework. I will drop the lowest two quiz scores when computing your final grade.

### Exams

There will be two in-class midterm exams:
Midterm 1: Monday, October 22
Midterm 2: Monday, November 19
You MUST bring your student ID with name matching that on the exam and picture matching the face on your head. There are NO MAKE-UP MIDTERMS. If you have to miss a midterm for whatever reason, it will be dropped and your final grade will be calculated according to formula 1 above.

The final exam is on Thursday, December 13th at 3pm. You MUST take the final to pass the class, and there are NO MAKE-UPS. Keep this in mind when scheduling holiday travel, for instance.

### Resources

Aside from myself and the TAs, there are various in-person and online resources available to you as you learn this material. Here are a few:
