Clark Bray's notes
(not the official notes for our class; not a substitute for the class)
This list amends the course syllabus. Please start with reading that first.
- Class attendance is mandatory.
- Ethics: Students are expected to adhere to the Duke Community Standard. You must reaffirm your commitment to these standards on all work. For quizzes, in-class exams, and the final exam, you must work completely independently without collaboration with others.
In a case of academic dishonesty that is resolved directly through a faculty-student resolution agreement approved by the Office of Student Conduct, the terms of that agreement will dictate the grading response to the activity at issue. If a student is found responsible through the Office of Student Conduct for academic dishonesty on a graded activity in this course, and the infraction is not resolved by a faculty-student resolution agreement, then the student will receive a score of zero for that activity, and the instructor reserves the right to further reduce the final grade for the course by one or more letter grades, possibly to a failing grade.
- A tentative, weekly schedule can found here.
- Homework/Midterm rules:
- Please check the "Block Calculus Course Policies" file on Sakai for details about grading. Roughly HW assignments will contribute 15% to your grade and each MT contributes 25%.
- You may use any aid for the HW assignments, for example textbooks or collaborations with classmates. (In fact it is encouraged to work with your peers on the assignments.)
- Both for HW assignments and exams: write full arguments with eligible handwriting and clear language.
- The tentative HW assignment list can be found here.
- HW will be due and collected at the beginning of the following Friday's class. The final list of assignments for the following week will also be announced on Fridays, and you can check it on this website as well (see here).
- Multi-page submissions must be stapled or they may be returned ungraded. Paper clips do not suffice as pages can and often do become separated.
- There no make-ups for HW/MT with the possibly exception of the following situations:
Please visit these websites to familiarize yourself with the procedures.
- The MT's are held in-class (and during class time) on the following dates:
MT1: September 28, Friday
MT2: November 14, Wednesday
- Notes/books are prohibited and all electronic devices must be powered down during the MT's. You have to present clearly written, own work (no collaborations/talking).
