Textbook. None. There will be handouts in class. Teaching Style and Attendance. About twothirds of the time will be spent on activities in small groups. The other third will be lecture and discussion. Because of the emphasis on inclass activity, attendance is mandatory. Missing class without prior notice will cause damage to your academic experience, your grade, and may cause you to be dropped from the class roster. Earning Points and Grades. There are a number of ways to earn points in the course:

Homework. Assignments will be given out on Thursdays and are due the next Thursday at the start of class. No late homework will accepted in any case, but I will let you drop at least one low homework grade. Tests. There will be one midterm and a comprehensive final exam. No makeups will be given without prior permission. Projects.Your projects will be an investigation of some topic in mathematics. Here is a handout with more details. I'll give you more details about the final project later. Bureaucratic Deadlines.

The Disability Programs and Resource Center (Student Services Building, Room 110, (415) 3381041, drc@sfsu.edu) is available to facilitate the reasonable accommodations process. Religious Holidays. I will make reasonable accommodations for you to observe religious holidays when such observances require you to be absent from class activities.
