Lecture 1—Introduction and Definitions Instructor background: Professor Howard E. Katz Contact information: [email protected], 207 Maryland Hall, webct web site Administrative: Cooperation and responsibility in the class Interaction is encouraged, discussing notes and assignments Written compositions and examinations are to be done independently Each student is separately responsible for having a command of the material; exams will test this. Some questions will be direct, others will be interpretive. Grades will not be determined by one- and two-point swings Points are earned as follows: up to 100 on each of four midterms, 20 on a mid-year essay, 60 on graded homework quizzes, and 120 on the final. Midterms are closed book; the final is open book. Grades for freshman are P/F externally, but lettered internally Read assignments once through, then focus on topics covered in class. Many of you know a bit about many of the topics; one of the goals of the lectures is to drive home the main concepts so that you can use them in the future, without being confused by partial or incorrect information left over from high school. This can only happen if lectures are attended and reading is done. I know that the quantity of reading is high, but it will be worth it! You will always be able to go back and refer to the readings. Have command of all assigned problems, bring questions to office hours. Key problems will be quizzed and/or handed in for grading. Extra quiz points may be awarded during office hour discussions.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
