# MATHEMATICAL ANALYSIS I

**Instructor:** Gregor Kovacic

**Office:** 420 Amos Eaton

Weekly homework will be assigned,
collected, and graded. I strongly encourage collaboration on the
homework. You are encouraged to work
in groups in which you discuss the problems and help each other out if you are stuck. However,
copying is forbidden, as is partitioning the
homework
among several students without everybody's participation on every problem. More precisely,
you may collaborate as much as you want, as long as in the end you write your
homework
down without looking at someone else's paper.

I strongly suggest that you at least look at the problems and start
thinking about them on the day they are assigned. Mathematical analysis is a very hard subject,
so many problems will be
hard and you will need some time to think about how to solve them, so do not
delay the homework until the
night before it is due. **No late
homework will be accepted.**

It is **strictly forbidden** to fish for solutions of recycled problems and copy them into yours, or
to copy other students' solutions.
Such behavior will be considered the **highest breach of academic integrity** and will land you in the
office of the Dean of Students with the recommendation that you be expelled from the class with a failing grade. It will also earn you zero points for the entire assignment on which
the copying occurs.

There will be
two tests. While the
second test will
largely focus on the material in the second part of the course, it may contain references to earlier material,
and you will be responsible for knowing that. There will be **no final exam** for this class, so make
sure you do well on the homework and/or
the tests.

## Grades

Your course grade will be the higher of the following two numbers:

1. The average of the
homework grade
and the two
tests.

2. The average of the
homework grade
and the higher of the two
tests.

The grade cutoffs will be no stricter than

A | A- | B+ | B | B- | C+ | C | C- |
D+ | D | F |

92-100 | 90-92 | 87-89 | 82-86 | 80-82 | 77-79 |
72-76 | 70-72 | 67-69 | 60-66 | < 60 |

and may end up being quite a bit looser, but I won't know where exactly they will be until
the very end.
