Homework (40%) will be collected approximately every three classes. There will be two midterm exams (15% each) and a final exam (30%). On each assignment, I will give a selection of problems, of which you must work five; typically I will specify one or two problems of central interest that everyone must do. There will be a few required Mathematica explorations.

Final exam:  Tuesday, May 5, 2015, 811 a.m.
