You may get help on the homework assignment from any source you choose, including other students and the Internet. The usual standards of academic integrity apply, and in particular you must credit your collaborators and cite your sources (the exact citation format is not important.) There are only two exceptions: (1) you do not have to cite the course textbook, and (2) you do not have to credit me for any help that I give you.

A good online tool for help with math homework is the Math StackExchange website. Make sure to read the FAQ (and in particular this page) before asking a question there. If you get help from this website, make sure that your homework paper cites the web page where the question and answer appear. It is good enough to give the exact title of your question.

If you plan to turn in the homework late, you must let me know as soon
as possible (which usually means *before* the due date) and tell
me why and when you want to turn it in late.
Even this does not guarantee that I will accept it.

- Homework: 50%
- Participation: 5%
- Midterm exam: 20%
- Final exam: 25%

The exams will be take-home and you will be permitted to refer to any written, printed, or online material that you wish, but not to consult with or seek help from any living person, either directly or indirectly. As always, you must cite your sources.
