**Grader:**
The grader for this course is Lorenzo Prelli.

lorenzop@math.washington.edu.
Please ask him if you have any questions about the grading.

** Textbooks: **
"Basic Algebra" and "Advanced Algebra" by A.W. Knapp.

** 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.
