midterm exam (20 percent) and the final exam (50 percent). There will be 8 problem sets; the schedule is given below. The problem sets will be posted on the course web page in PDF format, and some hardcopies will be available in class. Each problem set will be due in class on the day specified. We will not accept late problem sets for any reason. Instead, we will count the grades on the best 6 problem sets you hand in; thus you can miss up to 2 without any penalty. Each problem set is graded “check plus” (5 points), “check” (3 points), or “check minus” (1 point). You are encouraged to form study groups; 3-4 is the ideal size. Group work on problem sets is permitted and even encouraged. The mid-term exam will be in-class on Thursday October 23rd. The final exam will be a scheduled 3-hour exam. Both exams are closed-book, under the honor code.

    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.
