Math 5335 Fall 2008

Syllabus and Class Information

On the first day of class we discussed how our approach to Geometry will be somewhat different than what you might expect. Professor Roberts, who has taught this course multiple times, has posted a good explanation of this which I recommend you read.

Exams

Books, notes and calculators are not allowed on exams.

I record your numeric scores, not letter grades, but to give you an idea of how you're doing in the class I post approximate gradelines here. If the A line is 40, that means 40 is the lowest score in the A range, so it's the lowest A-. 39 would be the highest B+ in that situation.

Exam 1 40 30 20 10
Exam 2 40 30 20 10
