20% Homework Collected weekly.

10% GeoGebra Project You will create a computer demo of one of the theorems from the course, or a related theorem. You will present this to the class in the final week of the quarter.

5% Participation This includes attendance.

If you cannot come to any of the exams, you have to make arrangements within the first two weeks of the course. We will accept very few reasons for not attending one of the exams. Those reasons are limited to: religious reasons, interviews for scholarships, and participation in intercollegiate sports.

Cheating will be taken very seriously. Every attempt to cheat will give you an automatic "F" for the course. You will not be allowed to drop the course, and your case will be forwarded to the student conduct committee.

This term we will be using Piazza for class discussion. The system is highly catered to getting you help fast and efficiently from classmates, the TA, and myself. Rather than emailing questions to the teaching staff, I encourage you to post your questions on Piazza. If you have any problems or feedback for the developers, email .
