Course Grading: Assigned problems are on my web page http://www.unf.edu/~psen/. Try the problems on your own with the help of class notes. Do not use the solution manual as it does not help you to think! You need to be able to solve the problems since there will be seven quizzes during the semester, each being made up from the list of the problems of the materials covered in class on previous days. These quizzes are closed book and closed notes and scheduled below. The quizzes are your preparation for the tests and also 20% of your final grade.

You will have two noncomprehensive hour exams through the semester. For these tests, you will be permitted to use both sides of one regular sheet of paper for notes. Each of these exams will be worth 25% of your final grade. No make-up quiz or exam will be given at any time. A comprehensive final exam in the end of the semester will count 30% towards your final grade. You may use both sides of two regular sheets of paper for class notes for the final.
