- One of the main points of this class is to learn how to write proofs. This is what will be graded on the midterm and final grades. Your proofs should be written neatly, in sentences and paragraphs, and use reasonably formal English.
- All exam problems will be either taken from the problem set, or be very similar to a problem in the set.
- The homework will be graded simply based on whether or not you turn it in. However, each at the top of each homework, you may mark a problem you wish to be read carefully. We will read your proof carefully and give you detailed feedback so that you can get better and better at writing proofs.
- It is your responsibility to know how to do the problems and how to write out proofs. Practicing that is the only way to study for the exams.
- The final raw score will be computed with the following weights: 5% homework, 40% midterm, and 55% final.
- A grade of 'F' will be assigned to any student who misses the final. Incompletes are reserved for those who have completed all of the work for the class, including the midterm, but who, for a legitimate, documented reason, miss the final.

- I encourage everyone to use the free discussion board piazza.com for discussion of the class. You may go to their website, and enroll in MATH 132/3. This is a site that allows everyone to ask and answer questions. It is my hope that you will help each other out on the site, but I would prefer you restrict the questions to questions about the content, instead of simply about the homework. I don't want to see all of the homework solutions posted there. If there are questions about policies, exams, etc, please post them on piazza as well. I will answer them there so that the answers will be public and useful to other students.
- I encourage you to post broader questions, questions about applications, interesting problems, questions about the culture of mathematics, and so forth.
- You may post anonymously, for reference.
- You may give us anonymous feedback by posting a private note on piazza.
