 Type Midterm 1 Midterm 2 Midterm 3 Final Attendance Total Max Numeric grade 20 20 20 35 5 100

Tests:
 Midterm 1 July 3 (Tue). Answer Midterm 2 July 17 (Tue). Answer Midterm 3 July 26 (Thu). Answer Final July 30 (Mon). 8:00-11:00 AM

All tests are closed book/notes.
You should bring calculators to the tests.
However, you are NOT allowed to bring computer algebra systems such as Maple to the tests.
Attendance: Required .
The attendance grade is calculated as "5 * the number of attended classes / the total number of classes".
(Officially excused absence will be counted toward attended classes).
Seats will be assigned at the beginning of the semester.
Instructor will not provide extra-help on missed lectures, unless there is an official excuse.
