Professor Guth additions to course policy statement:
- Calculators will not be allowed on the exams.
- You can get EI in my office, either by appointment or
walk-in. If you opt for the walk-in, the door may be
shut or I may have a higher priority visitor. I am
normally in from 0800 to 1145, and 1300 to 1630.
- We can do evening EI via
Google Hangouts. You must have your
headphones and mike available for this to work. This
is best done by advance appointment.
- Homework is due at the start of the period following assignment.
Unless you are on emergency leave or medically incapacitated, you are to
insure it is turned in on time even if you will miss class. You can
either have a classmate turn it in for you, or scan it and email it.
- You will stop working on the homework when I take the report from the
section leader. Continuing to work on it after that point will result
in a grade of 0 and treatment of your actions as cheating, because we will
begin discussing it immediately after the report.
- You will generally grade your own homework at the start of the period, using red
pens that I will provide. In addition to marking any wrong answers,
you are free to make any notes you want. My previous students
found the homework review very helpful, and some of the best students made
notes for later study even on questions they got right.
- Even if you did not do the homework, you will turn in a blank assignment
with your name. If I do not have a homework assignment, you are
unprepared for class and may be marked absent.
- Instructor option grade: for the first marking period, the instructor
grade will be computed from the other grades by multiplying them by 10/9.
We might revisit this for 12 week and final grades.
Computer Suggestions: These are recommendations, and there are
caveats which mean that you can safely ignore them sometimes (or even most of
the time), but at some point in this course they will bite you on the
fourth point on
contact if you are not careful.
