Homework rules

It is crucial to give ample time to prepare your homework assignments. Assignments will be long and demanding, so start them early. Homework will be assigned each class, and the accumulated assignment is to be handed in each Wednesday. If, for some reason, you cannot hand in your homework on Wednesday, let me know the preceding Friday at the latest. Late or unstapled homework will not be accepted.

The assignments will be declared each class, but will also be clearly posted here.


Exam policy

You must plan your travel arrangements around the exam dates. The only valid excuses for missing an exam are a family-related crisis or a serious health problem. If this is the case, you will need a note from the appropriate Dean or University Health Services official. If you cannot attend an exam because of a Brown athletic contest, you must notify me at least two weeks in advance.

All exam information will clearly posted here.


Getting additional help

If you are having trouble with any of the course topics, you are encouraged to go to the Math Resource Center (MRC). There, you will find graduate students and advanced undergraduate students who can help you with notions from the course and homework.

MRC hours are 8 - 10 pm, Monday through Thursday, at Kassar 105. Directions and info can be found here.
