Grading policy: homework (40%), one midterm exam (30%), and one final exam (30%). The exams will be take home. Good mathematical exposition is expected on all written assignments. You may work together on the homework, but you are required to hand in your own work. You must work alone on exams. Homework will be assigned roughly once a week.
