- Religious Accommodation Policy: Washington State law requires that UW develop a policy for accommodation of student absences or significant hardship due to reasons of faith or conscience, or for organized religious activities. The UW's policy, including more information about how to request an accommodation, is available at Religious Accommodations Policy. Accommodations must be requested within the first two weeks of the course using the Religious Accommodations Request form.
- Course Materials:
- We will be using notes specifically designed for Math 307 at the UW. You may download the notes for the course here.
- The text by Boyce and DiPrima is optonal.
- Homework will be due at 11:59PM on Tuesdays.
- Late homework is not accepted. (No exceptions!)
- All homework will be submitted using WebWork, which is similar to WebAssign, but will be provided to you free of charge. Here is the link to the homework web page on WebWork:
To logon to WebWork, click on the link above and enter your UW login name. When asked for your password, use your UW student ID number (NOT your UW password!). You can change your password by clicking on "User Settings" on the lefthand side of the WebWork web page.
- Your login name is the first part of your UW email address. For example, my UW email address is email@example.com, so my UW login name is duchamp.
- You might not have an account on WebWork if you only recently enrolled in 307C! If you cannot logon to WebWork, please send an email message to me at duchamp[at]uw.edu and I will create an account for you.
- DO NOT PURCHASE WebAssign. We will NOT be using it this quarter.
Prerequisites for Math 307: a minimum grade of 2.0 in MATH 125.You are expected to have basic skills in algebra, trigonometry, and calculus. The first homework assignment includes a number of review problems designed to help you review these. Grades: Per Math Department Policy, the median grade for the class will be 3.0±0.2.
- Your course grade will be based on your scores on two midterms, homework, and the final exam, which will be weighted as follows:Midterm #1: 25%, Midterm #2: 25%, Homework: 10%, Final Exam: 40%.
- There are no makeups. If you have a compelling and well documented reason for missing a test, then your final exam will be weighted to compensate.
Rules for taking the Midterms and the Final Exam:
- One 8.5"x11" sheet of hand-written notes with writing on both sides will be allowed on each of the two hourly tests, as well as on the final exam.
- Scientific calculators are allowed on all tests, but graphics calculators are not allowed.
