The grading distribution will be as follows: midterm #1 20% midterm #2 20% problem sets 30% final exam 30% OFFICE HOURS Office hours are Mondays and Wednesdays from 12:30 - 2:00 in LT 1013. Please feel free to drop by or to give me a call if you are having problems with the material, if you need to miss a class, or if you just want to talk. Often a difficulty with an assignment can be resolved with a meaningful question or two. Our purpose here is to learn, and I am willing to help in any way that I can. DISRUPTIVE BEHAVIOR Since this is a large class, disruptive behavior by a few of you will impose costs on many others. Disruptive behavior includes talking to classmates, arriving late or leaving early, listening to portable recording devices, using a cell phone or laptop computer to play video games, snoring, or inappropriate gestures or outbursts in class. Such behavior will not be tolerated, and consequences will include being asked to leave the class, dropping a letter grade, or ultimately failure of the course. This is unfortunately necessary due to the behavior of your predecessors. None of this is meant to preclude the value of participation in the class. Please refrain from leaving for the bathroom unless absolutely necessary. During exams an escort will be required. TURN OFF YOUR CELL PHONES IN CLASS!

    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.
