The prerequisite for this course is a grade of "C" or better in
either Math 243 (with Math 244 recommended), or Math 253A, or
consent. Math 302 is recommended. Students should review the
Statement of Academic Expectations. All academic
work should be done with the high levels of honesty, integrity
and excellence that this University demands.
Our goal is to cover most of chapters 1 through 7 of the text book.
Regular attendance to class lectures is required. The grade will be determined by three in-class exams, a cumulative final exam, and homework. Homework assignments and due dates will be posted on the MATH 402 Homework page. Homework assignments must be legible, and you are required to use proper grammatical English and follow the guidelines for clear and concise writing. The exams and homework will be weighted as follows:
|Homework||15%||Grade computed from the weekly assignments|
|Exam 1||15%||Wednesday, September 20
|Exam 2||15%||Wednesday, October 18
|Exam 3||15%||Wednesday, November 15
|Final||40%||Friday, December 15, 12:00 PM to 2:00 PM.|
You must bring your UH student ID to every test. If Keller Hall is closed for any reason, we will meet by the steps of Hamilton Library. Only documented valid health related excuses will be accepted for missing an exam.
