FINAL EXAM : THU DEC 17 1998 8:00am-10:00am LOEB PLAYHOUSE

Course organization: This can be found on the assignment sheet (available from Prof. Gottlieb, or MathSci 205 or 242).

Amendments to this are as follows: Instead of three hour exams at 100 points per exam, there will be only two hour exams at 100 points per exam. About 150 additional points will be given on quizzes. 50 points will be given for homework. With the 150 points on the final, this adds up to the standard 550 points possible over the semester. Each quiz will be worth 10 points, 5 points of which will be given for attending the class when the quiz is given.

GOAL OF THE COURSE: Prof. Gottlieb will design the quizzes and parts of the hour exams to encourage students to learn to read carefully and accurately. The ability to read and speak and write with mathematical precision is the most important attribute necessary for success in mathematics.

COMPUTER ROOM

*******************************************************************************Again this fall, the Mathematics Department will host Math Open Hours in the Macintosh Lab in LAEB B275. Hours are 7:00 p.m. till 10:00 p.m. on Monday through Thursday evenings. As all of the lab assistants are new this semester, we will not be able to start Math Open hours until Monday, August 31, 1998. (Labs are available for student use during the first week of classes, but our assistants will not yet be on duty to help them.) Mathematics software available on these computers includes Matlab, Maple, Geometer's Sketchpad, and Excel. The assistants will help students with the computers, the software and, to some extent, with the mathematics. During these hours, students doing mathematics have priority for use of the machines, so there should not be a problem with access. The holiday schedule for Math Open Hours is as follows: Monday, Sept. 7 -- closed for Labor Day Monday, Oct. 12 -- closed for October Break Tuesday, Oct. 13 -- open but no assistants on duty Wednesday and Thursday, Nov. 25-26 -- closed for Thanksgiving Break The lab is also closed during finals weeks. ******************************************************************************
