**Exam 1**Thurs March 12th.**Exam 2**Thurs April 23rd.**Final**Thursday May 7th at 1:00PM to 3:00PM.

There will be two in-class exams, graded homeworks, and a final exam: these will count 40%, 30%, and 30% of your grade, respectively.

Students with excused absences will be given a make-up exam. No homework will be made up for credit, but it's important to make it up for your own benefit. The lowest scored HW will be discarded. Late homework will not be accepted. No make up final.

Write each problem neatly. If you have any question about grading, you must prove why you think so. Regrading will be in 7 days after returning. After 7 days, regrading will NOT be accepted. All exams will be in class. Calculator is allowed. They are closed book exams.
