Homework (20%): Each week you will be assigned a combination of online homework (to be completed on the WeBWorK site) and written homework (to be completed and handed in on paper). All problems completed will earn points towards your homework grade. Over the course of the semester, you will only need to complete 80% of the assigned problems to earn the required points. Any additional points earned will count as bonus credit (50% value of required points).
OpenLab (15%): You will be participating on the OpenLab (website) by writing and making comments in response to assigned readings, homework problems, and so on.
Project (10%): Our semester project will consist of a number of related activities, all centering around the idea of mathematics as exploration (as opposed to rote memorization). Project details will follow in the next few weeks.
Class Exams (30%): There will be 3 exams during the semester (not including the final). No makeup exams will be given. If you miss an exam for a valid reason, your final exam score will take the place of the missing exam.
Final Exam (25%): A final exam is given on the last day of class covering all topics. The final exam must be taken to pass the course.
