Grades. Your grade will be based on the homework, and the final. I will assign some homework each week, perhaps eight assignments total. Your seven best homework scores will contribute 30%, and the final will contribute 70%. In each homework set only three or four problems will be graded; each is worth 3 points. Except in extraordinary circumstances, late homework will not be accepted. If you miss the homework deadline, that homework will be one of those which does not contribute to your best seven. I cannot overemphasize the importance of doing the homework promptly and regularly. It is the only way to learn mathematics.
