HISTORY OF MATHEMATICS – MHF 4404 – FALL 2010 Instructor: Barry Griffiths E-mail: [email protected] Class Time: MW 6:30 – 7:50pm Class Location: BA 126 Office: MAP 115 Textbook: The History of Mathematics , by Burton (available online and in the bookstore) Homework: Six homework assignments will be given during the semester, which will count for one third of your overall grade. Each will consist of twelve questions, ranging from basic calculations that should take no more than a few minutes, to challenging problems that may require several days to think about and complete. Each homework will be collected on the due date shown below, and grading will be conducted on the basis of precision and presentation. Because this is an upper-level class, there will be a strong emphasis on clearly presenting your work, which means that simply obtaining the correct answer is generally not sufficient. Students are permitted and encouraged to work in small groups. Quizzes: Six short quizzes will be given, and each will last between 30 and 45 minutes. They will be of a similar standard to the homework questions assigned, and will contribute a third of your final grade. Exams: There will be two midterm exams and a final exam. Each will take up an entire class period, and altogether they will contribute a third of your final grade. Calculators: Scientific calculators may be used during the exams and quizzes. Grade Policy: Grades will generally be awarded according to the following scale: A : 90-100% B : 80-89% C : 70-79% D : 60-69% F : 0-59% Attendance: I intend to cover a lot of material during this course. It is therefore essential that you attend all the lectures. Excused absences (death in the family, medical problems, official UCF functions etc.) for exams and quizzes will not hurt your overall grade, but

    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.
