Announcements/Supplements:
• Homework: 15%
• Quizzes: 10%
• 2 Midterms: 20% each
• Final: 35%
The point scores on each item will be scaled to achieve the stated percentage. In other words, we use a weighted average of the scores, not a weighted average of an estimated grade on each item.
• UW math department unofficial policy: median grade for the course: 3.5.
Note that 3.5-4.0 is a A-/A by the Decimal-Letter conversion from UW online catalog

• Notes are not allowed on exams or quizzes.
• No late assignments accepted unless approved by me.
• I will be happy to explain and discuss the reasoning behind any of the policies of the course. As I tell my kids: a well-reasoned argument for doing things differently might get you somewhere, but simply complaining won't.

A musician's point of view:

"I never wanted to admit that music was so associated with mathematics, but those are the only two absolutes there are. It's the only two things that engage the right and left brain simultaneously." --Quincy Jones, Seattle Times, 10-23-2007

A physicist's point of view:

"To those who do not know Mathematics it is difficult to get across a real feeling as to the beauty, the deepest beauty of nature. ... If you want to learn about nature, to appreciate nature, it is necessary to understand the language that she speaks in." -- Richard Feynman. (1918-1988), The Character of Physical Law

A philosopher's point of view:

"I assert that, in every particular natural science, one encounters intrinsically scientific substance only to the extent that mathematics is present." --Immanuel Kant

A biologist's point of view:

"Every new body of discovery is mathematical in form, because there is no other guidance we can have." --Charles Darwin

The point of view of a physicist, mathematician, astronomer, philosopher:

"The laws of Nature are written in the language of mathematics." --Galileo Galilei
