I am a morning person who does not check email after 8:00 pm. A late night email will often be answered quite early the next morning. Course materials such as lecture slide handouts and home- work assignments will generally be available no later than the evening before class. Once the course has begun, I will designate some of my office hours during which I will be available not only in person, but also by the online meeting app zoom. More information on using zoom will be provided in a separate document. Grades: Grades will be based on a midterm exam, homework, quizzes, in-class activities, and a comprehensive final exam. Reading assignments: Reading assignments for each lecture are shown in the course schedule. Careful attention to definitions and key concepts in these reading assign- ments will improve your performance in this course. Homework: Assignments will be posted on Blackboard. Papers are due at the beginning of class on the due date. Both the answer and the solution method must be legible in order to receive credit. Late homework will not be accepted. Problems range in 330-syllabus-sp18.tex Spring 2018

P. R. Nelson 3 difficulty from straightforward calculation to exploration of concepts and applications. It is designed to provide practice in applying new concepts and methods. Some problems are intended to require particularly careful thought because “productive struggle” has been shown to be an important component of building understanding. Those problems that you don’t solve immediately are frequently the most effective learning experiences. Solutions to some problems will be available on Blackboard at the end of the class period at which they are due. Other problems may be used as the basis for in-class activities. Homework will not be graded in detail. However, the effort you invest in the homework is essential to learning this material. There is a very strong correlation between a student’s homework score and their final grade in this course. I encourage group study. However, I expect that homework assignments will be your own work.

    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.
