   35  points  final exam 
   10  points  optional extra credit assignments (5 points each)
   110  points

Homework and extra credit assignments may be turned in up to one week late, at a penalty of 10 percent of the score; or two weeks late, at a penalty of 50 percent of the score. No credit will be given for assignments more than 2 weeks late.

Quizzes will occur without warning, roughly one per week. It is not possible to make up credit for a missed quiz.

Course grades are based on a total of 100 points. I will probably base grades upon the distribution of scores, rather than predetermined boundaries.

If you know that you will be unable to attend the midterm or final exam, you must contact me in advance. If some emergency causes you to miss an exam, you must provide me with a letter explaining the circumstances; the letter must be signed by your advisor and the head of your department.
