REMARKS: We will have class class every Tuesday instead of every other Tuesday. All midterm exams are scheduled in the evening so that you can have a 2-hour period time to take a more comprehensive exam. If you have time conflict to the evening exams, I can arrange another time which is convenient to you. I might be out of country for research for a week in October . All missing classes will be made up by the every other Tuesday class time or a substituting instructor.

Student Directive: Students often ask what is required of them to be successful in a class. The short answer is: spend time with the material. The longer response is to read the appropriate sections at least twice before coming to class, then try your hand at working a few examples and homework problems, then come to class and participate, then go back home and reread the material, study your notes, and continue trying to work problems. In the class presentations, the instructor presumes that students are reading and studying the relevant material in the text. Find a classmate who will study with you. A reasonable time to spend 8 - 10 hours on your own per week. The key to learning a discipline is spending time with the material.

Student Conduct Code: Appropriate classroom conduct promotes an environment of academic achievement and integrity. Disruptive classroom behavior that substantially or repeatedly interrupts either the instructor's ability to teach, or student learning, is prohibited.

Teaching & Learning: Instructor and Student Responsibilities: UMD is committed to providing a positive, safe, and inclusive place for all who study and work here. Instructors and students have mutual responsibility to insure that the environment in all of these settings supports teaching and learning, is respectful of the rights and freedoms of all members, and promotes a civil and open exchange of ideas.

Academic Integrity: Academic dishonesty tarnishes UMD’s reputation and discredits the accomplishments of students. Academic dishonesty is regarded as a serious offense by all members of the academic community.

Students with disabilities: It is the policy and practice of the University of Minnesota Duluth to create inclusive learning environments for all students, including students with disabilities. If there are aspects of this course that result in barriers to your inclusion or your ability to meet course requirements such as time limited exams, inaccessible web content, or the use of non-captioned videos, please notify the instructor as soon as possible. You are also encouraged to contact the Office of Disability Resources to discuss and arrange reasonable accommodations.
